When it comes to the modern design of cellular-based mobile systems, cellphone tower and handset signals transmit a full 360 degrees without regard for territory or political boundaries. Therein lies the problem; some Canadian tribes are a little miffed that cellular signals from nearby Manitoba Telecom Services are crossing into their land, over their water and into their airspace. Apparently, airspace is being likened to water usage in the logic for this argument. As these reserves and territories are being violated in some form (that's up for debate, we guess), several Manitoba chiefs are in the process of negotiating revenue-sharing agreements for these signals now. If they fall through, though, there's always signal-blocking paint.
