Now with what has transpired they lose 50% of their income only for it to go to a private company instead. Not only will Rogers make money of ads on their own networks (print, radio, tv) but also from a PUBLIC company owned by the government of Canada. This basically says Rogers owns a public company for the next 4 years, but I'm wrong for seeing a major problem with it or with anything the telecoms do.

I forgot having ridiculous prices, controlling any form of media or connection to it, making statements that prices are to low yet complain when there is any threat of actual competition, colluding in prices, etc (the list goes on) is ok because it's time for a change (because what we had prior was dull, uninspiring etc).
Ya that's the real issue here, not the fact tax payers dollars are still going to the CBC yet are controlled by a private company...
