Not so great news Bell is at it again Plan B to buy Astral

Astral confirms talks with BCE to resurrect takeover deal Add to ...

»www.theglobeandmail.com/globe-in···5369161/

I'm sure the CRTC will have a say in this or is today's news something to do with the CRTC already siding with Bell after a lot of coaxing by them?

Apparently Bell doesn't understand the concept of No means No. I wonder what kind of spin they're going to put on this to try to get it through this time?

Furious George took a tranquilizer and realized that if the deal was scaled back it would probably be approved by the CRTC.

I hope the Competition Bureau says otherwise.

By forcing the CRTC to give specifics as to why they denied the deal last time, Bell can now tailor the deal to fit within those parameters.

Ian Greenberg, president and CEO of Astral Media, said the companies are "committed to making sure that the consumer always comes first."

First time around they tried to screw the public with their pants still on. Somehow I don't think this time around is really all that different.
