Telecom Order

Ottawa, 24 April 1998
Telecom Order CRTC 98-388
By letter dated 19 December 1997, Bell Sygma Inc., operating as Bell Global Solutions (BGS) applied for contribution exemption for certain circuits used for administrative purposes. In support of its application, BGS provided two affidavits, including a list of the circuits for which an exemption is requested and affirmed that the circuits are used solely for administrative purposes and that they are not connected to local or interexchange private line networks or facilities.
File No.: 8626-B15-01/97
1. By letter dated 20 January 1998, Stentor Resource Centre Inc. (Stentor), on behalf of and with the concurrence of BC TEL, Bell Canada, and TELUS Communications Inc. (collectively, the companies), noted that the provision of an affidavit in such cases is satisfactory where the reseller does not offer services which would attract contribution charges. Stentor understood that BGS has received contribution exemptions for its services. With respect to the circuits in question, Stentor stated that the companies have reviewed their records and can confirm that, with the exception of a few circuits which are no longer in service, the circuits appear to be administrative lines used by BGS and other divisions of Bell Sygma Inc. In light of the above, Stentor agreed with the requested exemption, subject to confirmation from BGS that it does not offer services which would attract contribution charges.
2. By letter dated 27 March 1998, BGS confirmed that it has received contribution exemptions for its services as noted by Stentor and that BGS does not offer services that would attract contribution. Accordingly, BGS requested that the Commission approve the application effective the date of installation.
3. The Commission considers that BGS' affidavits have met the evidentiary requirements set out in Applications for Contribution Exemptions, Telecom Decision CRTC 93-2, dated 1 April 1993 and Telecom Order CRTC 97-590 dated 1 May 1997.
4. In light of the foregoing, the Commission approves BGS' application effective the date of installation consistent with Effective Date of Contribution Exemptions, Telecom Public Notice CRTC 95-26 dated 12 June 1995.
