Re: Broadcasting Notice of Consultation CRTC 2012-368, Call for comments on exempting from licensing pay television and specialty Category B services with a limited subscriber base, and on amendments to the Exemption order respecting third-language television programming undertakings

Dear Mr. Barr:

This is with respect to the reply filed by IDRN-TV/IDNR-TV inc. on 15 August 2012 concerning the aforementioned Notice.

As stated in paragraph 26 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 IDRN 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 15 August 2012 and will therefore not place it on the public record of the proceeding initiated by the above reference notice.
