TORONTO (Reuters) - Canada's Telus Corp has withdrawn its bid to acquire struggling domestic wireless company Mobilicity, the Globe and Mail newspaper reported on Wednesday, citing a source it did not identify. The Western Canada-focused telecom company has made several bids for the much-smaller company, formally known as Data & Audio-Visual Enterprises Wireless Inc, despite federal government opposition. Telus, Mobilicity and court-appointed supervisors of the corporate restructuring weren't immediately available for comment. (Reporting by Alastair Sharp; Editing by Bernadette Baum)
