Proposed changes to Canada's wireless market
Queen’s University business professor Douglas Reid is available to talk about easing foreign ownership restrictions in Canada's telecommunications sector.
Industry Minister Tony Clement said he will release a consultation paper on the wireless industry in the next few days. Professor Reid feels Canada should reduce restrictions to allow more companies to enter the Canadian market.
“We should be opening up the industry to everyone and everybody. Fundamentally we are far behind the rest of the world. Canada has been protecting its market -- it’s a Canadian way of doing things. We have built up our infrastructure, now we have to get prices down,” says Professor Reid.
Professor Reid will only be available to do interviews by phone this week.
