Canada minister blocks Telus-Mobilicity spectrum deal
Oct 30 (Reuters) - Canada's Industry Minister James Moore confirmed on Wednesday that the government has rejected a second attempt by wireless telecom company Mobilicity to transfer its spectrum licenses to Telus Corp.
"That transaction has not been approved," Moore told reporters when asked about a proposed Telus deal with Mobilicity.
Moore confirmed he was referring to a second attempt by Telus to acquire the spectrum.
A spokesman for Mobilicity said the company remains in talks with Industry Canada officials about the matter. The company declined to provide further comment.
