Town councillors raise their tech budgets for BlackBerry


Comox Valley

Comox, a small town in BC, Canada, is going to see their bureaucrats get their hands on some nice new BlackBerry devices. The reason being that they are about to vote on a budget that will give themselves a monthly $100 raise to cover the costs of technology, such as new BlackBerry devices.

Although the government is split on the idea of the budget, one councillor, Tom Grant, is definitely going to be spending that money on a new 8900 or better.

“I don’t need the $100 but with my own money I went out and bought a Blackberry two weeks ago and it has changed my life,” he said.
