Thank you very much for your presentation.
Thank you for the opportunity to speak, Madam Chair.
I represent Saint Boniface—Saint Vital, which is in the city of Winnipeg, Manitoba, and our city and our province are abuzz with the news yesterday that Bell recently purchased MTS. I'd like to ask you some questions about that purchase.
We know that MTS currently has 2,700 jobs in Manitoba, and we understand that Winnipeg will become Bell Canada's western headquarters, and I think that's positive. However, a third of MTS stores in Manitoba will be sold to Telus, I understand. Can you give me and this committee, or at least this side of the committee, some measure of comfort that there will not be massive layoffs as a result of this acquisition?
