Lycos aquired those shares 2 1/2 years ago in exchange for Internet content. It seems that BCE was not satisfied with the deal. They switched to Google search results in January. Now a done deal.
A little more here [canada.com].
The official version dont tell us much about it.
One thing is for sure, The french version of the Sympatico portal gets a lot more visitors and page views since they switched to Google. So the portal gets more revenues.
I know switching to Google was an unilateral move from Sympatico. The negociaciations for an arrangement took some time. I will try to know more.
