1988 Hougen's history


In 1988 Canadian National Telecommunications (CNT) announced that NorthwesTel serving Northern B.C., the Yukon and western NWT was for sale. Rolf resigned from the NorthwesTel board and put together a group to buy the company. This included BCTel, Alberta Government Telephone, an Inuit group from Inuvik & private investors. Subsequently Bell Canada was the purchaser and Rolf was invited to again join the board.
