This comment is submitted in response to the Canadian Competition Bureau’s White Paper entitled “Big Data and Innovation: Implications for Competition Policy in Canada.” The Global Antitrust Institute's Competition Advocacy Program commends the Bureau’s conclusion that existing competition laws grounded in sound economic fundamentals deserve primacy in antitrust analysis in all markets, including those characterized by big data, while also urging the Bureau to consider expanding the White Paper to address important issues involving the analyses of big data that would be of considerable value to the international antitrust community.
