Abuse of dominance


A team of CRA consultants helped successfully defend the Vancouver Airport Authority (VAA) against a claim by the Canadian Competition Bureau that VAA had abused a dominant position. The Competition Bureau alleged that there was a substantial lessening of competition arising from VAA’s limitations on entry in the provision of in-flight catering services at the airport. However, the Competition Tribunal determined that the entry restrictions had a valid business justification and did not result in a substantial lessening of competition. CRA economist David Reitman testified on behalf of VAA at the hearing.
