Commentaire / Comment
I write in opposition to the application by TELUS Communications Inc to introduce a credit card processing fee.
While a legal settlement gives merchants the right to charge such fees, I do not believe this is appropriate in the case of a corporation as profitable as the applicant. I believe this is, and should remain, a cost of doing business.
TELUS, like other telecommunications providers, already enjoys considerable freedom to change its rates. According to its 2021 Annual Report, it enjoyed a 35% growth in net income.
This application is pure greed on the part of the applicant.
