Milton Bradley-Hasbro’s Monopoly is a great game but for some large (or even small) businesses it’s a way of life. Competition is good.

The CRTC said Canada’s top four cable companies (Rogers, Shaw, Videotron and Cogeco) and the two satellite distributors (ExpressVu and StarChoice) captured 90 per cent of the revenue from broadcast distribution services.
Hooray for competition! It’s alive and well in Canada according to the CRTC.
