On April 10, 2020, Christie & Walther Communications Limited sold its interest in Storm Internet Services to Birket Foster, a local technology entrepreneur long associated with the internet service provider.

Birket Foster and Charles Walther have served as owners and directors of Storm since 2003 and shared duties as chairman.

Among Eastern Ontario's first Internet Service Providers, since 1996, Storm has focused on continuous innovation and client-driven service and support that consistently exceed expectations.  Storm services both residential and small-to-medium sized business clients in Eastern Ontario and provides high-speed access across 8,000 square kilometers of the Ottawa Valley.

These past weeks, Storm has been instrumental in helping customers shelter at home, providing robust internet services to clients to support video conferencing, VPNs and edutainment applications for the Ottawa and surrounding area due to COVID-19.

Gowling WLG advised Mr. Foster in this transaction with a team that included Daniel Scott, Carole Chouinard and Shaela Rae.
