REGINA – Did you call your mother yesterday, or did you text?

SaskTel says a million long-distance calls were placed on Mother’s Day in 2009, but it anticipated only half that number this year.

SaskTel says it’s because people are texting instead of dialling.

SaskTel was expecting more than six million Mother’s Day text messages this year.
