The Harper government doesn’t plan to change rules that Canada’s biggest telecoms claims will give foreign wireless firms an unfair advantage.
The prime minister says he understands companies like BCE, Telus and Rogers have to stand up for their shareholders and employees against allowing foreign firms like Verizon to move into the market on this side of the border.
But Stephen Harper says Canadians want to see more competition and lower cellphone rates.
U.S.-based Verizon Communications is reportedly exploring the possible purchase of Mobilicity or Wind Mobile.
