Re: Broadcasting Notices of Consultation CRTC 2012-246 and CRTC 2012-246-1, Call for comments on opening up the programming genre of popular music to competition, and on proposed standard conditions of licence for competitive Canadian specialty Category C services operating in the genre of popular music (the Notice).

Mr. Roux,

This is with respect to the reply filed by Clovys TV Inc. (Clovys TV) on 5 July 2012 concerning the aforementioned Notice.

As stated in paragraph 15 of the Notice, only “parties” may file replies to issues raised in the initial written comments phase of this proceeding. The term “party’’ is defined in section 1 of the CRTC Rules of Practice and Procedure ( as an “applicant, respondent or intervener”. Since Clovys TV did not file an intervention during the intervention phase of this proceeding, it cannot be considered a “party” to the proceeding and avail itself of the right to file a reply.

In light of the above, the Commission cannot consider your reply filed on 5 July 2012 and will therefore not place it on the public record of the Notice.

John Traversy
Secretary General
