Re: Part 1 Application – Request to grant flexibility to increase pay telephone rates – Request for further extension
In a Commission staff letter dated 8 June 2012, the deadline for Bell Aliant Regional Communications, Limited Partnership, Bell Canada, and Télébec, Limited Partnership (collectively Bell Canada et al.) to file their responses to requests for information relating to the above-noted proceeding was extended to 10 July 2012. In addition, corresponding changes were made to the remainder of the process.
By letter dated 9 July 2012, Bell Canada et al. requested that the deadline to file their responses be further extended to 31 July 2012.
Commission staff considers that Bell Canada et al.’s request for an extension is reasonable in the circumstances. Accordingly, the process is revised as follows:
Bell Canada et al. are to file responses to requests for information with the Commission, serving copies on interveners, by 31 July 2012.
Requests by interveners for further responses to their interrogatories posed in their requests for information, specifying in each case why a further response is both relevant and necessary, and requests for public disclosure of information for which confidentiality has been claimed by Bell Canada et al. in their interrogatory responses, setting out in each case the reasons for disclosure, are to be filed with the Commission and served on Bell Canada et al. by 8 August 2012.
Written responses to requests for further responses to interrogatories and for public disclosure of information filed in confidence in responses to interrogatories must be filed with the Commission and served on the intervener making the request by
15 August 2012.
A determination with respect to requests for further information and public disclosure will be issued as soon as possible. Any information to be provided pursuant to that determination is to be filed with the Commission and served on interveners by 29 August 2012.
Interveners may file final comments on Bell Canada et al.’s application with the Commission, serving copies on Bell Canada et al., by 19 September 2012.
Bell Canada et al. may file reply comments with the Commission, serving copies on interveners, by 3 October 2012.
Parties are reminded that, in accordance with the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission Rules of Practice and Procedure, if a document is to be filed or served by a specific date, the document must be actually received, not merely sent, by that date. A document must be filed with the Commission by 5 p.m. Vancouver time (8 p.m. Ottawa time) on the date it is due.
It is expected that a decision on the issues raised in Bell Canada et al.’s application will be published within four months of the close of record.
