Canadian Town's Sole Internet Provider Is Shutting Down

Imagine what it would be like to live in a town with no internet or cell service? That's exactly what is happening right now in a small town in Canada. Instead of getting the high-speed internet access the town was fighting for, the only ISP in the area went out of business instead.

No Facebook, no Netflix, no Google and no email: that will be the reality for the residents of Stewart, B.C., starting on Tuesday for at least one month. "For me, personally, it's like my life stopped right now," said Stewart Mayor Galina Durant. "My community, including my house and my office, will be without an internet connection."
