BCE-Astral, Consumers ready for the CRTC decision today

For Immediate release
October 18, 2012

(OTTAWA) At 4:00 PM EST this afternoon the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission will release its decision on Bell’s $3.4 takeover of Astral Media. The Public Interest Advocacy Centre will be on-site analyzing the decision and available for comment at 4pm.

PIAC acted as counsel for the Consumers’ Association of Canada (CAC), Canada Without Poverty (CWP), and the Council for Senior Citizens’ Organizations of British Columbia (COSCO) arguing that the transaction would not benefit Canadian consumers. PIAC is also a member of the Stop the Takeover Coalition, a broad-based coalition of public interest groups opposing the transaction.
