GLOBALIVE APPEALS FEDERAL COURT RULING

TORONTO, Feb. 17 /CNW/ - Globalive is filing a Notice of Appeal today with the Federal Court of Appeal and filing an application for an extension of the 45 day stay issued by the Federal Court. Globalive's appeal comes in the same week that Industry Minister Tony Clement and MP Steven Blaney announced that the federal government is appealing the same Federal Court ruling.

"Like the Government, we disagree with several aspects of the Federal Court decision, and we are confident that the Federal Court of Appeal will overturn it," said Anthony Lacavera, Chairman of Globalive. "Our biggest priority is to put this regulatory gaming by our competitors behind us, so that we can continue to focus on bringing wireless innovation and competition to the marketplace."

Lacavera reiterated comments made this week by Minister Clement: "The Federal Court decision is not about Globalive being 'Canadian enough'.  The Government and Globalive have always agreed that we are fully compliant with the existing rules, and the Federal Court did not suggest otherwise.  The decision was about two 'legal errors' in the Cabinet ruling, according to the judge.  We disagree and we fully expect to prevail at the Court of Appeal."

"But this courtroom fight is for the lawyers.  Our fight is about providing more competition to Canadians for better value, better choice, and better service."
