Theworld’s two biggest search engines plan to partner, in a deal whichwould see ads from Google appear on Yahoo’s search results pages. TheCompetition Bureau announced it is launching an investigation into thematter.

 

Spokespeoplefor the Competition Bureau said that combining Yahoo with market leaderGoogle could create a near monopoly on Canada’s search market.
