It was just announced that the CRTC will be handing down their decision regarding Bell's purchase of Astral tomorrow (Thursday). I am surprised that they have made a decision so soon and hope that it only means one thing- the deal will be DENIED!!

There has been quite the uproar about this deal and Bell has gotten a lot of negative press. Add to that the fact that the new commissioner has stated he wants to be more consumer friendly- what better way to get on consumers' good side then denying this purchase and preventing the monster that is Bell from getting even bigger.

If the deal is denied, I wonder whether Astral will try and sell to someone else or continue operating the company themselves?!
