Telecom Order

Ottawa, 19 December 1997
Telecom Order CRTC 97-1876
On 8 December 1997, The Island Telephone Company Limited (Island Tel) filed an ex parte application for approval of tariff revisions.
File No.: Tariff Notice 474
1. As an exception to the ex parte procedure established in Review of Regulatory Framework, Telecom Decision CRTC 94-19, 16 September 1994, Island Tel has requested that the application not be placed on the public record until the effective date of the proposed offering due to the competitive harm that could result if the information was released prior to that date.
2. Given Island Tel's arguments, the Commission is of the view that because the specific direct harm outweighs the public interest in disclosure, confidentiality of the filing is appropriate until the effective date of the application.
3. In light of the foregoing, the Commission orders that:
The proposed tariff revisions to become effective on 1 January 1998 are approved on an interim basis. The company is directed to provide a copy of the application for the public record in all relevant public examination rooms on the effective date.
