Dumb thing is that they don't consider american channels as competitors of canadian programs in the report. Like american shows didn't challenge canadian's. LOL
Bell would have provided a real competitor to Neflix and Apple TV with the acquisition of Astral. They would have presented an alternative to TVA news in french in the private news department.
I really dislike some canadians/quebecors who are kinda jealous of people or companies who have too much succes and therefore don't want to see them succeed.
Nobody seems to mention Bell donated $3,926,014 to
mental health programs last year and will do so this year and every year coming. And this revenue might just increase if the company gets bigger.
If I do the maths right, Bell not acquiring Astral is a bad thing for people who are hurt of mental illnesses and you guys... enjoy that ?
