Canada’s antitrust authority obtained court order for Google advertising investigation

A federal court has issued an order to the Competition Bureau of Canada to continue the investigation on Google’s online advertising practices. The order ‘required Google to produce records and written information that are relevant to the Bureau’s investigation’, according to a local news outlet. The Bureau has required such information to determine whether Google’s practices are impending the success of competitors and resulting in ‘higher prices, reducing choice and hindering innovation for advertising technology services, and harming advertisers, publishers and consumers’.
