OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canada's antitrust watchdog said on Friday it had obtained a court order to advance its investigation into whether Google's online advertising business is hurting competition, according to a statement.

The Competition Bureau's court order "requires Google to produce records and written information that are relevant to the Bureau's investigation," the statement said. "The Bureau's investigation is ongoing and there is no conclusion of wrongdoing at this time."

Apple and Google have been fined €10 million apiece by Italy's competition and market authority (AGCM) which has found they did not provide their users with clear enough information on commercial uses of their data -- in violation of the country's consumer code. Apple and Google were both contacted for a response to the ACGM's sanction. Google is accused of omitting relevant information at the account creation phase and as consumers are using its services -- information the regulator says should be providing in order for people to decide whether or not to consent to its use of their data for commercial ends.
