The Government of Canada announced today that Navdeep Bains, the federal Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, will be on-hand at the Canadian Telecom Summit, set to start on Monday, June 5th, to announce new initiatives the Trudeau government plans to take to make telecom service more affordable in Canada.

Based on the content of the federal government’s press release, it doesn’t appear Bains will announce new legislation. “Minister Bains will talk about how the Government of Canada is ensuring that telecommunications services for Canadians are more affordable, accessible and of higher quality,” says the government’s release.
