Rogers’ executive Rob Bruce in 2012 on changes to Canadian foreign investment rules that removed restrictions for companies with less than ten percent of the market:
â€œOur view is ‘bring it on. As far as competition goes, we’ve always been a full-speed-ahead competitor and we’re ready to go with whoever comes to market.â€
Rogers’ CEO Nazr Mohamed in 2013 on Canadian wireless foreign investment rules:
Mohamed repeated that Rogers favours opening foreign investment for large telecom players too, which can’t be more than one-third foreign owned. “If the Canadian government decides to open up foreign ownership, it should open it up for everybody,” he told reporters later.
Rogers Deputy Chair Edward Rogers yesterday on Canadian foreign investment rules:
It’s a complex topic but I think our view is as Canadians we better really study and understand what that is before we do it, because the model we have now, I believe, allows Canadians to have the best wireless industry, the best cable industry, and some fantastic media assets in Canada. And I personally don’t want to just sell that. So, the shareholders maybe the richest executives enjoy that. But we have the hollowing out of Canada after that. I don’t think there’s any formula where any of these companies are own outside of Canada and they do better for customer. I think there is a lot you could argue that if we were a branch plant that Canada would be last.
