Court hearing on Competition Bureau’s appeal against Rogers-Shaw merger set for 24 Jan

5 Jan 2023

Canada’s Federal Court of Appeal will hear the Competition Bureau’s appeal against the Competition Tribunal’s approval of the merger of Rogers Communications and Shaw Communications on 24 January. As previously reported by TeleGeography’s CommsUpdate on 1 January the court temporarily suspended the Tribunal’s decision of 29 December to clear the CAD26 billion (USD19.2 billion) merger – alongside a related deal to sell Shaw’s Freedom Mobile subsidiary to Videotron – after the Bureau disagreed with the Tribunal’s conclusion that the transactions were unlikely to result in higher prices for consumers.
