Excerpt from "Proposed recommendations would improve Canada's competitiveness", by Robert Todd:

Goodmans LLP competition law group leader Richard Annan served 22 years with the Canadian Competition Bureau. He disagrees with the panel’s recommendation of creating a U.S.-style competition review process.

“Our own system has more flexibility built into it. The timeframes for review are potentially shorter,” he says, noting however that changes must be made to the process by which information can be accessed from parties without a formal court process. The U.S. has a “second request” policy that allows the agency to issue a subpoena, while in Canada parties must go to court for such orders.
