BCE deal approval now could be January: report

MONTREAL – A pair of Bell Canada investors groups filed documents in Quebec Superior Court on Friday contesting the pending takeover of the company by a consortium of private funds, reports The Globe and Mail. BCE had expected to get court approval for the $35 billion deal this week but the timeline is now extended to January, says the story. A group led by the Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan agreed to buy BCE at the end of June, as we’ve been reporting. Shareholders approved the deal last month.
