[ ] >> Akshay: and fantastic news, it is official, canada has its first wnba team. >> Hello and welcome to see to be news channel picnics returning us, I'm actually. The U.S. justice department has filed the sweeping antitrust lawsuit against ticketmaster in the parent company live nation, accusing the entertainment giant of running an illegal monopoly over live events in the united states. >> It's alleged that's to sustain the dominance, live nation relies on unlawful and anti- competitive conduct to exercise it's monopolistic control over the live events industry in the united states and over the fans, artists, independent promoters and venues that pander -- powered the industry. >> Akshay: in the lawsuit the justice department accused the nation of using a slew of tactics including threats and retaliation to suffocate the competition to maintain stronghold on the live entertainment industry. Canada's competition bureau says it is aware of the lawsuit but cannot confirm if it will be conducting it's own investigation into live nation. The competition bureau is required by law to conduct it's work confidentiality.

>>> We'll bring in john brielle, the vice president of the public policy for the national consumers. Thank you for your time onto to be news channel. >> A good evening and thanks for having the. To meckling at the biden administration's antitrust enforcement, many saw this coming. When you have one company that controls ticketing, event ownership, promotion, secondary and venue ownership, that is the definition of the monopoly by any definition. >> Akshay: this, of course, as you said is a big win for smaller promoters, artists and fans across, but looking at what live nation is said so far and how will be playing out, do you think they will let go of this so easily? >> Now, I think live nation will fight this suit to thumbnail I think they want want to hold onto the monopoly as long hard as possible. >> Akshay: do you think the dod has a strong case, please explain. >> I think that the doj has, resented compelling evidence that live nation and the subsidiary ticketmaster have abused their power picnic expect that when we see this go to trial they will present even more evidence. >> Akshay: live nation has, as we know, grown significantly in the last decade. Several artists in the past have complained in clashed with ticket monster and live nation, some include bruce springsteen, and, of course, taylor swift. How do you see this working out for musicians in the long run? >> I think it's clear that musicians have very little power against the monopoly. We saw that in testimony that artists gave before the U.S. congress last year. They said they have very little power to do things like determine where they want to tour, how much they will charge, all that is influenced by this gigantic monopoly. And at the end of the day if we have more competition in the space, artists, independent venues and especially the fans can only benefit. >> Akshay: we're talking about 400 musical artists, over 250 concert venues over north america and ticketmaster owns 80% of the big venues, primary ticketing for concert, as he also pointed out. My question to you as if they were to split, we are talking about north america over here, this is the U.S. department of justice, what would happen to canada? >> Will I think that across the world they will be looking at the dominance this country has. Her -- this company has. Clearly north america is there home region and they have the most dominance here. But I hope in canada that we will be keeping a close eye on what the U.S. justice department is doing and if they find that live nation is violating canadian antitrust law they will take action like they are taking action in the united states. >> Akshay: we will have to leave it there. I have we appreciate your time and urinalysis. >> My pleasure. >> Akshay: of the news we are tracking.

When we have work to do, we've acknowledged that from day one, but there is more than he to do. >> Akshay: letter comes just two months before nato countries are set to meet in washington. Experts eights an effort to get countries like canada that are liking on time. >> Etiquette is clearly a move that is intended to increase the pressure on canada, frankly, in spite of this most recent budget and the defence update, we are still not on path on pace to meet the 2% nato commitment that was made as recently as last year but made repeatedly over years, to get there until the end of the decade.

>> Of addiction is that 2017 to 25 named storms will form, and eight to 13 have the potential to become hurricanes. >> We can expect some of these storms to become major hurricanes. >> Reporter: right now the thought is that they could be as many as seven, and all of these totals are above the climate averages for the season.

And it is so important. And and I encourage the mayor and council to close this chapter and move on. The longer the transition takes, the more it costs. >> Akshay: the transition was a key promise of souris' former mayor. But in 2022, a new mayor was elected on the promise to stop this and keep the rcmp. Here is what she had to say about the decisions. >> Policing of the municipal manner and that was the sentiment shared by the solicitor general, premier eby, the former premier organ, as well as every single mla and souris. The fact is that the court challenge has revealed huge holes in the transition to the spf on multiple levels and the true costs will have an extremely, extremely onerous impact on the city of souris and especially on souris taxpayers. >> Akshay: the province as they will continue with the transition with or without the city's support.
