    Rogers Communications Inc (RCIb.TO), Shaw Communications Inc (SJRb.TO), and Canada's competition bureau want to participate in a mediation process for the companies' proposed C$20 billion ($15.5 billion) merger in the Competition Tribunal in July, the tribunal said on Friday.

    "The parties have advised the tribunal that they wish to participate in the mediation set for July 4th and 5th," the tribunal said in a statement to Reuters, adding that all information related to any mediation would be confidential.

    now that theyve sold wind mobile, does the competition bureau drop their case against the merger?

    Thought we would see more pop up after the Global Live announcement last week. Must be still to many doubters or uneasy new money staying on the sidelines. Still holding my shares but didn't add any with the recent drop. 🤔

    I just sold the last of my stock on this company… so my guess is that tomorrow morning they’ll announce the Rogers deal is done and it will immediately hit $40.50.

    Quote from Financial Post ...... "Mark Goldberg, a seasoned telecommunications consultant, said the decision by the Commissioner of Competition to file an application opposing the merger of Rogers and Shaw doesn’t mean the deal is dead.

    He pointed out that the Competition Bureau and the Competition Tribunal are “completely separate and have not always agreed on competition policy or interpretations,” adding that a number of significant applications brought forward by the bureau in recent years have been rejected by the tribunal or the courts."

    The Comp. Bureau is forgetting a very important current fact. Rogers cable service doesn't go West past Western Ontario (I think Sault Ste Marie) and Shaw doesn't go further East of that area. Selling Shaw's cellular biz should be more than sufficient to allow deal to go through. Even though that cell biz is peanuts compared to the majors. Rogers will try to give away the Shaw cell biz, as they lose a billion to Shaw if deal fails. Quebecor or anyone else is in a great spot to pick up Freedom at a massive discount.

    Hmmm. To risk a few more $ and get a 8-9% return in the next few months if deal closes at the $40.50 buyout. 🤔

    it is all wishful posturing, "we are trying but its just too hard whaaa mommy", Get the frack out of the way and let the big boys compete, your meddling is never going to work

    So Canada bans Huawei equipement, I bet that alone will drive the cost of cell plans up more than the losing
    of Shaw / Freedom competition.

    ya are the shorts are working it for the arbitrage play or is the deal in jeopardy, Me no like this weakness

    Comp Bureau just trying to look as if they're doing their job. State of California has more people than all of Canada. Now build a cellular network out across Canada. No one is going to come into the Canadian market and be a competitor. The Global Live deal is probably the best it's going to get as far as competition.

    looks to me like this is a non event. stock likely trades flat to down until other decions are made. makes sense. if a deal ever gets done, it will be at a lower price.
