For 16 Billion Loonies I can build you a really great network- from
scratch.  This isn't about the scarcity of investment capital.  It is
about a very odd business plan: run away from the future.  I thought
businesses were supposed to identify and capitalize (literally) on
opportunities. Yes, that may cost money.  If the CEO/COO/? of Bell
cannot handle a task of that magnitude, maybe the shareholders should
find someone who can.

On the other hand, let them stay in the 90s.  That will make it easier
for those who follow to succeed.
