“Monopoly-Friendly Canada ‘Does not treat competition policy seriously’” by Bryan Carney, TheTyee.ca

TheTyee.ca quotes Ottawa lawyer, John Pecman, in an article on changes that need to be made to the Competition Bureau.

Former Competition Bureau commissioner John Pecman notes a federal election is looming: ‘What better way of targeting the middle class or consumers than saying there’s going to be a review of the Competition Act, given the growing concern about corporate concentration?’

In a phone interview with The Tyee last week, Pecman elaborated, saying that federal laws governing corporate competition reflect Canada’s outdated view of itself as primarily a resource exporter and otherwise unable to compete with the big U.S. economy next door.
