Canadian Lawyer Magazine quotes Antonio Di Domenico in an article on beer monopoly being protected from Competition Act

Canadian Lawyer Magazine quotes Toronto lawyer, Antonio Di Domenico, in an article on beer monopoly being protected from Competition Act.

Usually, parties would raise the regulated conduct defence when facing criminal prosecution under the Competition Act, but, in this case, it was used to defend against a civil action that was relying on the cartel provisions of the Competition Act, says Antonio Di Domenico, a partner and co-leader of the antitrust competition and marketing group at Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP.

“This is the most recent example, and, I may say, a very provocative example of how the defence can be used to defend class action litigation arising out of allegations that the criminal provisions of the Competition Act have been violated,” he says.
