Our File: 8698-C12-200506719

Ottawa, 18 October 2005

To:   Parties to ITS Canada Application for access code 5-1-1 , Telecom Public Notice CRTC 2005-5, 9 June 2005 as amended (PN 2005-5)

Dear Sir/Madam:

Re:  PN 2005-5, Amended procedures

The Commission received reply comments from the Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention/Association canadienne pour la prévention du suicide (CASP/ACPS) dated 11 October 2005 in accordance with the procedures set out in PN 2005-5, as amended on the 18 July 2005.

By letter dated 12 October 2005 , ITS Canada objected to the entry of CASP/ACPS' reply comments into the record of the proceeding, claiming that CASP/ACPS' submissions were not reply comments but rather new evidence.

On 13 October 2005, CASP/ACPS replied by stating that its 11 October 2005 submission was a direct reply to the ITS Canada application and therefore within the scope of this proceeding.   CASP/ACPS added that "the Commission may wish to permit ITS Canada and other parties to the PN 2005-5 proceeding, to file submissions regarding this aspect of the CASP/ACSP 11 October 2005 Reply comments in order to avoid any subsequent allegations of a breach of natural justice."

In light of the above, Commission staff considers that CASP/ACPS' reply comments form part of the record of the above referenced proceeding.   However, Commission staff considers it appropriate that parties be allowed to respond to matters raised in CASP/ACPS reply comments.   Parties wishing to file a reply must do so in writing by no later than 4 November 2005 . The reply shall be limited to the matters raised in CASP/ACPS' reply comments. On 4 November 2004, the record of the proceeding will be closed and no other submissions or evidence should be filed.

Yours sincerely,
(Original signed by Stephen Delaney)
