Freedom mobile sale not enough to resolve Rogers-Shaw deal concerns -competition watchdog

Sept 6 (Reuters) - The sale of Shaw Communications Inc unit Freedom mobile to Quebecor Inc was not enough to eliminate antitrust concerns with the proposed C$20 billion ($15.21 billion) purchase of Shaw by Rogers Communications Inc, Canada's competition watchdog said.

"Such a divestiture will not replace the significant and growing competition Shaw Mobile was delivering and would continue to deliver in Alberta and British Columbia, and it would make Freedom Mobile a substantially weaker competitor than it would have been but for the proposed transaction," the watchdog said in a document posted on the website of Canada's competition tribunal on Tuesday.
