Did you know Canada has a Telecom Hall of Fame? Did you know they have special recognition awards? Well, Nortel is getting an award for “its role in pioneering digital communications” – an initiative that was launched in 1976 under the “Digital World” program. Of course, Nortel’s real push from analog to digital happened under the reign of ex-CEO John Roth, who walked away from Nortel in 2001 with a cash booty of more than $135-million (mostly due to stock options).
