It is very unlikely that Telus is compromised.  They're one of the
largest telephone and broadband providers in Canada.

It is much more likely that someone else's address book got stolen,
which contained Garth's address, and the addresses are now being
forged into spam sent from botnets in random places all over the world.

Mailing lists need to spam filter incoming mail, and if they don't,
there's not much to do other than reminding the list manager that
they need to do so.  I agree that telling people, hey, you might
just have gotten spam is not helpful.
