RE: DiversityCanada Foundation and the National Pensioners Federation Part 1 Application Regarding TELUS’ Prepaid Wireless Services

Dear Mr. Schmidt:

On 17 July 2014, the DiversityCanada Foundation and the National Pensioners Foundation (DiversityCanada/NPF) submitted a Part 1 application regarding certain Telus Communications Company (TELUS) prepaid wireless services policies (the application).  The deadline for submission of an Answer by TELUS to the application and for the Interventions of any interested persons is 25 August 2014.

In a letter dated 29 July 2014, TELUS requested that the Commission extend the deadline for its Answer to the application by 11 days (i.e. until 5 September 2014). TELUS submitted that, due to the number of overlapping proceedings in which it is involved, each with filing requirements in late August, it requires additional time to respond to the application.

DiversityCanada/NPF filed a letter dated 31 July 2014, indicating that it has no objection to TELUS’ request.

Commission staff considers that the requested extension of the deadline is reasonable and should apply both to TELUS and to any Interveners. 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.
