BCE Inc., Bell Canada Enterprises Inc. on Thursday said lower restructuring costs pushed its main Bell unit to report a 26 per cent rise in operating income last quarter, but warned that a slowdown in the business market and a continued Canadian weak economy will keep revenues at the lower end of expectations into the fourth quarter of 2009. The company was in the process of cutting jobs and streamlining its divisions. Canada’s largest phone company, reported third-quarter profit as customers spent a third more to send e-mail messages and surf the Internet from their handsets. Net income rose to C$558 million ($532 million), or 72 cents a share, from C$248 million, or 31 cents, a year earlier. All because the CRTC helps Bell to suppress competition, decent consumer pricing.. BCE began offering Apple Inc.’s iPhone in Canada last week through its Bell Mobility wireless unit, breaking the monopoly held by Rogers Communications Inc. Bell, which introduced Palm Inc.’s Pre phone nationwide in August, is now using both devices to force consumers to spend more on data after the economic slowdown forced cutbacks in long-distance calling. BCE rose 5 cents to C$27.14 at 4:10 p.m. in Toronto Stock Exchange trading. Third-quarter revenue increased 0.5 percent to C$4.46 billion. The company said Bell’s revenues from operation increased 1.2% in the quarter to $3.79-billion, but the growth was largely fuelled by the acquisition of The Source stores and the remaining 50% of the equity of Virgin Mobile Canada. Bell said it added 135,000 wireless subscribers and that average monthly revenue per user was C$52.13 in the quarter. Bell TV revenues were also up 10.2 per cent, The company also reported growth in video revenues which offset the natural declines in local, long-distance and wireline data revenues. Bell can never make enough money nor adfully please all of the customers..
THE REAL UNDENIABLE FACT THAT BELL HAD TOO MANY INCOMPETENT, NO GOOD, USELESS, IMMORAL EMPLOYEES AS I FOUND OUT OFTEN WAS ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS BELL WAS NOW SO COSTLY TO OPERATE TOO. THE CANADIAN CITIZEN’S TELECOMMUNICATIONS COSTS ARE AMONGST THE HIGHEST IN THE WHOLE EARTH. PASSING ON THE PRICE TO ANY CUSTOMERS BY UNREALISTICALLY EXPECTING THEM TO PAY HIGHER COSTS IS A POOR, VERY UNREALISTIC MANAGEMENT ON BELL’S PART STILL.

BC home inspector ruled ‘negligent,’ must pay nearly $200,000 to buyers VANCOUVER, B.C. – A home inspector has been ordered to pay nearly $200,000 to a North Vancouver couple who were told the house they wanted to buy only needed basic repairs. A B.C. Supreme Court judge ruled Imre Toth was “negligent” and provided “woefully inadequate” estimates after his inspection of the house in September 2006. Toth’s report estimated house repairs would only cost about $20,000, when in fact they totalled more than 10 times the amount at $200,000. The judge found the buyers wouldn’t have purchased the $1 million home had they been made aware of the extensive rotting beams and other structural problems.
QUEBEC – The outgoing leader of the Action democratique du Quebec blames the federal Tories for helping to destroy his party. In a scathing open letter, Gilles Taillon says his decision to sever ties with the federal Conservatives prompted a harsh response. Taillon says he met with Conservative Sen. Leo Housakos, a key player in both federal and provincial politics, and that he told him the tiny ADQ would be cutting ties with the Tories. Taillon suggests that meeting prompted a putsch, in which the Tories and former ADQ leader Mario Dumont orchestrated his ouster. Members of Taillon’s caucus began abandoning the party until, just 23 days into his leadership, he agreed to quit. The embattled ADQ leader writes that his leadership was undermined when he tried to end that “untouchable alliance” with the Tories. He also says he’s found troubling financial irregularities in the party’s books that he plans to report to police.
