Rogers Outage Canada

I can't either, but the reality right now seems to be that 911 calls are
failing for anyone on a Rogers cellphone.

I have seen anecdotal reports that the mobile network is in a half broken
state that phones remain registered to, so a 911 call will attempt and then
fail.

This is unlike what would happen if you had a US/Canada cellphone with
battery power but no SIM card in it that would search for any available
network in RF range for a 911 call if needed.
