The explosive growth of e-commerce during the pandemic has had tremendous benefits for consumers, but it has also raised concerns about the growing size of major industry players such as Amazon, Google, Apple, Microsoft, and Facebook. Europe and the US have moved to impose antitrust measures and sweeping new competition policies against the titans of tech, and there are calls in Canada to do the same. MLI Domestic Policy Program Director Aaron Wudrick sat down with Anthony Niblett and Daniel Sokol to discuss why Canada doesn't need sweeping changes to competition policy to handle big tech and to propose solutions that would counter abuse of dominance and encourage compliance with the Competition Act. This podcast discussed Niblett and Sokol's recent MLI paper "Up to the task: Why Canadians don't need sweeping changes to competition policy to handle Big Tech."
