BIV on Roundhouse June 19: CRTC bans unlocking fees — will telcos pass on the costs?

On the latest show, OpenMedia’s Meghan Sali breaks down the CRTC ridding the country of unlocking fees on smartphones. Will the carriers just pass those costs onto consumers or will the telecoms have to work even harder to compete?

Then, Tammy Tsang of the Strathcona Business Improvement Association discusses a new initiative aimed at drawing businesses into East Hastings to help make it the city’s most walkable street by 2021.

Later, Resource Works’ Stewart Muir talks about why finance people back east are feeling nervous about the future of B.C.’s resource industry.

And iFinance CEO Ann Kaplan offers insights into why Canada’s credit score system is in need of an overhaul.
