CONSUMER LAW GROUP has launched a Canada-wide class action lawsuit against Visa and MasterCard on behalf of merchants who accept as a method of payment these companies’ credit cards.

The class action is based on these companies imposing significant anti-competitive restrictions on merchants from trying to encourage customers to use lower-cost methods of payment and from declining to accept certain Visa and MasterCard credit cards with high fees.
