The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) last week agreed to approve the legal acquisition of Shaw Communications Inc.’s broadcasting services by Rogers Communications Inc. but with some mandatory conditions that the company must meet in order to close the $26 billion deal, which was signed in mid-March 2021.
