Excerpt from "Canadian competition bureau's strategic vision calls for more interim orders, digital enforcement", Mark Coakley, PaRR:
The CCB's view on the increased use of interim orders is consistent with the Bureau's understanding of "how fast innovation can happen and how fragile the conditions for positive innovation" are, said David Rosner, a competition lawyer at Goodmans. Innovation moves at a high speed, he argued. An investigation that "takes two years and litigation that takes another two years" doesn't help a company facing anticompetitive conduct in the digital economy. The CCB's plan, he noted, promotes interim orders as a means to "protect" the "market dynamics" that lead to innovation.
