If you hold shares in Rogers, are an employee at Rogers or are a customer of Rogers, you may be wondering if the current internal dispute in the battle for control will affect your involvement with the communications giant.
Toronto’s mayor is weighing in on what has become a very public dispute among Rogers family members.
“I made an obligation to Mr. (Ted) Rogers, who I had worked for as a lawyer, and as an executive, that I would help look after his family and keep them in a position where they could have a great business going that employs thousands of people in the City of Toronto,” John Tory told CP24.
As an advisor to Rogers Communications, which he openly disclosed before becoming mayor, John Tory feels this dispute will be solved.
“A lot of families have issues and they have to get sorted out, and I’m just trying to be helpful in sorting those things out, because of my long association. I mean this is a great company and it has great employees and it’s a competitive company with other great companies,” Tory further explained.
Shares in Rogers dropped 6 percent on Monday.
Members of the Rogers family are preparing to fight out their dispute in court.
