RE: Videotron Tariff Notice 40
On 20 September 2012, the Commission received an application by Québecor Média inc., on behalf of its subsidiary Vidéotron s.e.n.c. (Vidéotron), under cover of Tariff Notice 40 (TN 40), in which the company proposed an amendment to section 201 of its Carrier Access Tariff to replace a reference to the termination of intra-exchange traffic with a reference to the termination of intra-local interconnection region traffic (intra LIR).
On 12 October 2012, the Commission received comments by Bell Aliant Regional Communications, Limited Partnership (Bell Aliant) and Bell Canada (collectively, the Bell companies) on Vidéotron’s application.
Paragraph 28(1)(a) of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission Rules of Practice and Procedure provides that the Commission may request parties to file information or documents where needed.
The Bell companies are requested to provide comprehensive answers, including rationale and any supporting information, to the attached question by 24 April 2013.
