    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.

    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."

    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. 🤔

    Good decision by competition bureau, less competition means higher monthly bills and more monopoly of the Big 3 Telcos. This deal should be cancelled altogether.

    Yes this is not push thru because rogers will only use this to get more people to have higher phone bills.not paying anything right now for my phone and i can call everybody..

    A great arbitrage opportunity at -10% down on the open.
    I backed up the truck again in this one. $$$
    Slow and steady wins the race.
    It’s not a question if, it when SJR gets sold.
    Let the lawyers fight it out, collect the divy and wait
    for the sale to come to fruition.

    now they are using the competition burros to try and lower the price because freedom is a distressed asset and they is very little news about the other bids centrist canada is alive and well it seems

    yep but shaw still wants out and while the deal might not be what the comp burro wants it might be better than the next offer which could just see the slow destruction of the shaw assets, rogers shaw are a good fit and it make sense to combine them.

    Bad things happen in bear markets - Yes, I too remember the BCE Verizon takeover bid failure.....that hurt allot but eventually BCE did come back (would not touch BCE, T at these current P/E multiples thought - they are headed for 50% off....it will just take some for them to get there).

    WOW! Only down by 8%. THATs CRAzY!! Just like this recent "delayed" market reaction to rising interest rates and the Ukraine War, SJR is LAGGING as investors are hopeful despite the UNLIKELY approval of the buyout of SJR by RCI. So, I say, GTFO now while you can!! Downside another 35%+, upside 15%?? Not a very good risk/reward ratio. SELL!!

    Wow, still trading higher - get out while you can!!

    shaw and rogers don't want to combine to screw consumers but to better compete with bell and telus. Seems like this smoke show is just cover while telus and bce work to tighten there grip
