The percentage of Canadians opposed to foreign control of domestic communications companies including telcos increased over the past 18 months, according to a new survey conducted by Decima Research Inc. for Decima Publishing Inc. The latest research could become a focus of debate when the House of Commons Standing Committee on Industry, Science and Technology begins its review on foreign ownership restrictions in the telecom sector on January 27. Industry minister Allan Rock announced the review last November (RoW, Nov. 25/02).
