Rogers’ trustee choice OK’d

OTTAWA — Canada’s Radio-TV & Telecommunications Commission said Thursday it approved Rogers Communications’ appointment of Pierre Juneau as interim trustee of Maclean Hunter shares pending regulatory approval of a takeover.

“The approval herein granted … is in no way meant to imply any pre-approval of the application for transfer of control of Maclean Hunter to Rogers and in no way prejudices the commission’s right to consider the application on its merits, and if appropriate, deny that application,” the CRTC added in the letter.

The CRTC said it has not received Rogers’ full application for the transfer of Maclean Hunter control to Rogers.

Juneau, a former CRTC chairman, will act as trustee for tendered Maclean Hunter shares until Rogers receives approval from the CRTC, Canada’s competition watchdog, and the U.S. Federal Communications Commission.
