 BELL CANADA -- Company History
The Bell Telephone Company of Canada, which came to be called Bell Canada, is the country's largest provider of telecommunications services, supplying voice, data, and image communications to customers in the provinces of Quebec and Ontario and in the Northwest Territories.
An amendment to Bell Canada's charter in 1892 read, 'The existing rates shall not be increased without the consent of the Governor in Council.' Although the company was now subject to regulation, it still had to contend with competitors.
Although between 1987 and 1992 Bell Canada had already lowered its long-distance rates, sometimes by as much as 51 percent, its rates remained almost double those in the United States, which was not helping the company fight competition from that country.

 Canada/US Relations   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Canada has always been aware that its existence has to depend on something else than sheer power; and so internally and externally it has attempted to give itself to the virtues of conciliation, compromise, pluralism, and acceptance of difference.
The shift in Canada is partly a result of US control of large segments of the Canadian economy, of pressures under the free trade agreements to merge the two social cultures, and a general move in the Western world towards greater reliance on market forces for the production and distribution of wealth.
In Canada, the tendency to mirror, echo, or extend developments in the USA is increasingly a characteristic of the society.
