Bell Aliant Regional Communications, Limited Partnership – Ex parte application
File number: Tariff Notice 350
1. The Commission approves on an interim basis, effective 1 March 2011, the ex parte application by Bell Aliant dated 15 December 2010.
2. In order that the application may be available for public examination, consistent with the CRTC Telecommunications Rules of Procedure, the company is directed to file with the Commission, on or before 1 March 2011, an electronic version of the application for the Commission website. Among other things, Telecom Information Bulletin 2010-455 allows interveners to comment, within 25 days, on Group B tariff applications that have been placed on the public record.
 An ex parte application is an application that has been filed with the Commission without notice to the public and, as such, is not placed on the public record when initially filed. An ex parte decision is one in which the Commission disposes of an application solely on the basis of the applicant’s submissions. Subsection 61(3) of the Telecommunications Act allows the Commission to make an ex parte decision where it considers that the circumstances of the case justify it. In Review of regulatory framework, Telecom Decision CRTC 94-19, 16 September 1994, the Commission set out several considerations to be balanced in any determination to permit ex parte tariff filings, including the public interest in the effective operation of the competitive marketplace and the public interest in an open regulatory process.
