Dear Mr. Schurr:

Subject: Mandate of the DNCL Operations CISC Subcommittee

Commission staff is in receipt of your letter dated 13 March 2006 written on behalf of Aliant Telecom Inc., Bell Canada, NorthernTel Limited Partnership, MTS Allstream Inc., Northwestel Inc., Saskatchewan Telecommunications, Télébec, société en commandite, and TELUS Communications company (collectively the Companies).

In the above referenced letter, the Companies submitted that certain issues identified in Commission's staff's letter dated 2 March 2006, should be removed from consideration by the DNCL Operations CISC Subcommittee and, instead, should be addressed within the 27 March 2006 comments from interested parties.

Commission staff notes that in, Proceeding to establish a national do not call list framework and to review the telemarketing rules, Telecom Public Notice CRTC 2006-4 , dated 20 February   2006   (PN 2006-4), subsequently amended by PN 2006-4-1, the Commission requested the DNCL Operations CISC Subcommittee to examine certain issues:

"In addition to issues relating to the structure of a national DNCL, it will be necessary to examine a number of other operational issues regarding how a national DNCL will function, such as for example, matters pertaining to consumer registration and measures to ensure the protection of privacy and personal information.   It will also be necessary to consider issues related to the rates charged by the DNCL operator as well as the administrative procedures and requirements for the registration and investigation of complaints".

Commission staff considers that the DNCL Operations CISC Subcommittee remains the appropriate forum in which to address the issues identified in Commission's staff's letter dated 2 March 2006 .   Commission staff intends to work closely with the DNCL Operations CISC Subcommittee to ensure that identified issues are addressed in a manner that seeks out the expertise of the subcommittee and are suited to resolution by it.

Executive Director - Broadcasting & Telecommunications
