Re: CanWest Global's First Annual Report Pursuant to Decision CRTC 2000-221

Dear Ms. Bell:

CanWest Global filed a letter with the Commission dated 13 February 2002 that provided information in addition to CanWest Global's first annual report pursuant to Decision CRTC 2000-221 (dated 19 December 2001). We would like clarification on one matter flowing from the information provided in your 13 February 2002 letter.

Your letter was unclear regarding the current and possible ongoing involvement of Mr. David Asper on the CHCH-TV Hamilton and CHEK-TV Victoria advisory boards. As such, please confirm with the Commission that neither Mr. David Asper, nor any other associate of CanWest Global, is currently, or will be going forward, a member of either of the CHCH-TV Hamilton and CHEK-TV Victoria advisory boards.

This information should be filed with the Commission no later than 8 March 2002.

Yours sincerely,

Nick Ketchum
