Re: Application regarding Rogers “Next” and TELUS “T-UP!” (File 8620-P8-201405606) – Request for Extension

Dear Ms. Hunt,

On 17 June 2014, the Public Interest Advocacy Centre and the Consumers’ Association of Canada (collectively “PIAC-CAC”) submitted a part 1 application regarding the Rogers Next marketing program offered by Rogers Communications Partnership (Rogers) and the T-UP! marketing program offered by Telus Communications Company (TELUS). Interventions related to this application are presently due by 18 July 2014.

In a letter dated 20 June 2014, Rogers requested that the Commission extend the intervention deadline by two weeks (i.e. until 1 August 2014). Rogers submitted that, due to other concurrent processes, Rogers requires additional time to respond to the application. TELUS and PIAC-CAC supported Rogers’ request. PIAC-CAC also requested that the deadline for PIAC-CAC to reply to interventions be adjusted accordingly, pursuant to the CRTC Rules of Practice and Procedure.

Commission staff considers that the requested extensions to the intervention and reply deadlines are reasonable. The timeline is hereby revised as follows:

A copy of this letter and all related correspondence will be added to the public record of the proceeding.



Nanao Kachi,
Director, Social and Consumer Policy
