Re:  Part I Applications regarding Videotron’s practices related to its mobile wireless Unlimited Music service

Dear Mr Béland:

Please file with the Commission a copy of each agreement between Québecor Média inc. (QMI) (or Vidéotron s.e.n.c.

It is requested that copies of your existing agreements be provided by 30 October 2015.

The Commission has received requests from Vidéotron and the Consumers’ Association of Canada, the Council of Senior Citizens’ Organization of British Columbia, and the Public Advocacy Centre with respect to future process. These parties’ concerns will be addressed, and deadlines for each of the remaining phases of this process, including an interrogatory phase, will be set out at a later date.
