Comments of the Public Interest Advocacy Centre associated with Industry Canada consultation on foreign ownership rules in telecommunications

Public Interest Advocacy Centre (PIAC)
Submission to Industry Canada Opening Canada’s Doors To Foreign Investment In Telecommunications: Options for Reform
30 July 2010

In its submissions, PIAC notes that inadequate competition, and premature deregulation of many markets has limited choice and quality of service for consumers, and led to mediocre price/value performance. Although PIAC favours loosening the foreign teleco ownership rules to allow more start up new entrants, it also notes the necessity of reforming the merger rules to prevent takeovers and mergers that do not increase consumer welfare.
