Canadian Government to Review Country's Competition Policy

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

According to Canadian newspaper The Globe and Mail, the Canadian government will review Canada's competition policy regime.  Given the importance of the discussions that have emerged in the US context from the Antitrust Modernization Committee, this is probably a good thing.  The Globe and Mail reports:

    [T]he government will have an “expert independent panel” do a comprehensive review of Canada's
    competition policies and report – before next year's budget – on options for future legislative
    amendments, the budget said. It cited the industry minister's policy direction to the Canadian
    Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission – instructing it to rely on market forces as
    much as possible – as a good start.
