It looks like Big Telecom is cozying up to the government. Today, Telus announced that former Conservative Public Safety Minister (also former Minister of International Trade and Treasury Board President) Stockwell Day will be joining its board.
It was only two weeks ago that Bell also appointed a former Conservative cabinet member to its board, former Industry Minister Jim Prentice.
That's right, two of Canada's largest telecom companies are now getting even closer government, and benefiting from its new board members' years of high-level political careers. Strong stuff.
