Canada’s Telus risks costly snub with Mobilicity bid

TORONTO, April 25 (Reuters) – If Telus Corp hopes to
press its advantage in an upcoming auction of wireless airwaves,
the Canadian telecom may need to abandon its plan to snatch a
floundering rival out of creditor protection and back away from
a nasty fight with the government.

Canada’s Conservative government has aggressively opposed
the carrier’s expansion plans, which Ottawa sees as a challenge
to its policy of encouraging more competition in an industry
dominated for years by Telus and its two main rivals, BCE Inc
and Rogers Communications Inc.
