Goodmans quoted in "Competition Bureau just got tougher", National Post

Excerpts from "Competition Bureau just got tougher", by Jim Middlemiss:
Cal Goldman, co-head of the competition, antitrust and foreign investment group at Goodmans LLP and a Band 1 ranked practitioner, says that Mr. Pecman “is very much focused on making sure that any and all decisions made by the commissioners office are fully and properly formed."
Lawyers say that recent court rulings are also changing Canada's competition landscape. Richard Annan, a Band 3 ranked practitioner who is co-head of the competition group at Goodmans LLP, notes the Supreme Court of Canada has ruled Canadians can sue someone from a price-fixing cartel outside of Canada for indirect purchases. That sets Canada apart from the U.S. and will "open the pathway for more class action lawsuits," he says.
