Dear Madam/Sir:

Re: Bell Aliant Regional Communications, Limited Partnership Tariff Notice 414 and Bell Canada Tariff Notice 7361 – Requests for information

On 24 August 2012, the Commission received applications by Bell Aliant Regional Communications, Limited Partnership and Bell Canada (collectively, the Bell companies) under cover of Tariff Notices 414 and 7361, respectively, in which the Bell companies proposed revised monthly co-location floor space rates that apply within their Ontario and Québec serving areas.

By letter dated 15 November 2012, Commission staff issued requests for information, and the process dates were revised accordingly. However, in respect of the CRTC Rules of Practice and Procedure concerning the 21 December to 7 January holiday period, Commission staff is further revising these dates as follows:

Bell Companies’ responses to Commission interrogatories 12 December 2012
Comments may be filed by parties 9 January 2013
Reply comments may be filed by the Bell companies 18 January 2013

With respect to the Bell companies’ 12 December 2012 interrogatory responses, the level of disclosure of information should be consistent with previous disclosure rulings and be consistent with the disclosure guidelines specified for cost information set out in Confidentiality of information used to establish wholesale service rates, Telecom Regulatory Policy CRTC 2012-592, 26 October 2012.

Consistent with the guidelines set out in Broadcasting and Telecom Information Bulletin CRTC 2010-959, copies of comments and interrogatory responses referred to above are to be served on all parties to this proceeding. Copies of the documents should also be sent to

Yours truly,

Original signed by
