CLASS ACTION AGAINST BELL CANADA: FALSE AND MISLEADING ADVERTISING AS TO THE PRICE OFFERED FOR ITS SERVICES

(Superior Court of Montréal - No: 500-06-000572-111)

MONTREAL, June 29, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - Mrs. Monique Charland filed today a motion to institute a class action against Bell Canada for false and misleading advertising as to the price of its services.

This class action stems from the communiqué issued by the Canadian Competition Bureau on June 28, 2011 regarding the finalization of an agreement with Bell Canada imposing an administrative sanction of 10 million dollars for false and misleading advertising, being the maximum amount provided for by the Competition Act.

The class action alleges that Bell Canada engaged in false and misleading representations concerning the price of services it offers, notably by inserting clauses which provide for additional costs tied to services offered, drafted in an manner difficult to read and placed in such a position to be easily missed by the Class Members.

The class action is open to all persons in Canada who during the period of December 1, 2007 to June 29, 2011 were contractually bound with Bell Canada.

All persons concerned by the present motion to authorize the institution of this class action, may, if they wish, provide us with their relevant information by completing the form obtained by consulting the web site of the petitioner's lawyers at www.paquettegadler.com.
