Bell Canada deal angers bond holders

Their movement follows the accusation by bloggers that OTTP simply is a stalking horse that will meet obligations to keep the majority of the company Canadian-owned, but later might flip its investment quickly if the Canadian government loosens restrictions on foreign ownership.
