Not here, they're all in collusion with each other, in the name of Marketplace Symmetry " of course.

That doesn't count with WIND, which is why this whole thing came up in the first place.

WIND can't advertise like Rogers which is what this is about, not speech and companies in general can not say anything negative directly about competitors in advertising unless they want to exposure themselves to getting sued.

No, it's about Rogers straight up lying in their advertisements and WIND called them out on it. It doesn't matter if what is said in their ad has any relation to their competitors or not. A company cannot blatantly lie in their advertising here.

At least not until the regulator & courts are bought and paid for.
