Share fiber optic to 3rd parties?

Any chance we'll see Telus grant fibre optic access to 3rd party companies on the west coast?  I saw a ruling from the CRTC that will force the big companies to share access to their fibre lines but it mentions it will likely start with Ontario and Quebec in 2016.

Not likely any time soon. They'll likely hold out as long as possible before offering fiber to resellers since Telus is paying the entire cost for the fiber installs. The copper lines were subsidized.

There may be some requirement to share the backbone, I can't see the local infrastructure (last mile) being shared.
