TORONTO, Feb 27 (Reuters) – Canada’s provincial securities
regulators are looking to extend their jurisdiction to cover
crowdfunding, the grass-roots form of fundraising being pursued
by a growing number of start-ups and small ventures.
The move is part of a broader plan to revise rules around
who is qualified to invest in a publicly-traded company without
first seeing a prospectus.
TORONTO, Feb 27 (Reuters) – Canada blocked a joint venture
of two of the country’s biggest wireless carriers from grabbing
more airwaves on Thursday, sending the latest pointed message
that their dominant positions would be challenged in the fight
to win over consumers.
The government said it had declined a request to transfer 83
wireless spectrum licenses from NextWave to Inukshuk, which is
owned by Rogers Communications and BCE Inc’s
Bell Canada unit.
