Notice of hearing

Gatineau, Quebec

Clarification of the scope of the final submissions due by 14 December 2009

  1. In Broadcasting Notice of Consultation 2009-411-7, the Commission announced that it will accept final written submissions in connection with the proceeding on a group-based approach to the licensing of television services and on certain issues relating to conventional television submitted on or before 14 December 2009. The Commission limited the length of these submissions to no more than 10 pages, excluding information requested by the Commission during the oral phase of the public hearing.

  2. On 2 December 2009, the Commission received a letter from CTVglobemedia Inc. (CTVgm) requesting that this limit of 10 pages not include comments on the four studies that were filed by the Commission on the public record between 22 October and 13 November 2009. CTVgm argued that these studies are very detailed and require a substantive response.

  3. In response to CTVgm’s concerns, the Commission announces that the limit on the length of the final written submissions does not include comments in reply to these four studies.
