Dear Ms. Kirshenblatt:

Re: Broadcasting Notice of Consultation 2012-370 Item 1 – BCE Inc. (BCE), on behalf of Astral Media inc. – Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s (CBC) request to accept its letter commenting on proposed changes to BCE’s tangible benefits package

The Commission is in receipt of a request from the CBC to accept its letter filed on
14 September 2012 with respect to BCE’s proposed modifications to its tangible benefits package. Specifically, the CBC has requested that the Commission amend its procedure for the above-noted proceeding pursuant to section 7 of the CRTC Rules of Practice and Procedure by accepting its letter and placing it on the public record of this proceeding.

This is to inform the CBC and parties to the proceeding that the Commission intends to reserve its decision on the CBC’s request until it issues its decision on the merits of BCE’s application with respect to Item 1. Nonetheless, CBC’s correspondence will be placed on the public record to allow parties to address the CBC’s comments regarding BCE’s proposed changes to its tangible benefits package in their final comments and final reply. Parties are also advised that their comments addressing the CBC’s letter will not be considered in the Commission’s decision should the Commission deny the CBC’s request.
