Bell Canada (competitive)
On June 29, 2011, Ms. Monique Charland filed an application for authorization to institute a class action against Bell Canada.
The Competition Bureau filed a press release on June 28, 2011 entitled “Competition Bureau Reaches Settlement with Bell Canada Requires Bell to Pay $10 Million for Misleading Advertising”. The members of the group would therefore have received false or misleading indications concerning, among other things, the prices of Bell Canada’s services.
On June 9, 2014, the court authorized the class action against Bell Canada and Bell Expressvu limited partnership, but not against Bell Mobility Inc.
On November 25, 2015, the court changed the description of the group by dividing it into 2 subgroups.
Door-to-door visit sub-group
“Any natural person in Canada who has subscribed to landline telephone services, Internet services and/or television services (the “Services”) from Bell Canada and/or Bell ExpressVu Limited Partnership as a result of a door-to-door visit between December 1, 2007 and June 29, 2011 inclusive, and who was billed at higher rates than those quoted to him for the Services; »
“Any natural person in Canada who has subscribed to landline telephone services, Internet services and/or television services (the “Services”) from Bell Canada and/or Bell ExpressVu Limited Partnership on the basis of an advertisement between December 1, 2007 and June 29, 2011 inclusive, and which was charged additional mandatory fees such as Touch-Tone fees, Internet modem rental, MSN Premium Service, network access, service digital, HD receiver rental for Fibe TV PVR and/or long distance network connection. »
