Canada’s federal government has rejected a second attempt by big telecommunications company Telus Corp to acquire spectrum licenses from struggling wireless startup Mobilicity, Industry Minister James Moore confirmed on Wednesday. “That transaction has not been approved,” Moore told reporters when asked about a proposed Telus deal with Mobilicity. Moore confirmed he was referring to a second attempt by Telus to acquire spectrum won by Mobilicity in a 2008 auction that was set aside for challengers to dominant operators such as Telus.
