Dear Mr. Lawford:
Re: PIAC’s Part 1 application regarding Quebec Bill 74 and purported ISP blocking – Additional procedure and extension of deadlines
The purpose of this letter is to inform you of additional procedural steps that are required in the case of the above-noted file and to extend certain deadlines associated therewith.
The Federal Courts ActFootnote 1 requires, pursuant to section 57, that notice be served on the Attorney General of Canada and on the attorneys general of each province whenever a question of the constitutional validity, applicability or operability of an Act of Parliament or of the legislature of a province is raised before a federal board, commission or other tribunal.
In light of this requirement, PIAC is to serve upon the Attorney General of Canada and upon each provincial or territorial attorney general within ten days of the present letter:
- its application;
- a copy of this letter; and
- a notice, substantially in the form prescribed by section 69 of the Federal Courts Rules,Footnote 2 setting out the constitutional question raised by PIAC, a concise recitation of the material facts and legal basis for the constitutional question and the forum in which the constitutional question has been raised, namely, a proceeding initiated by way of an application under Part 1 of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission Rules of Practice and Procedure.Footnote 3 This notice is to state that interventions may be filed in the proceeding according to the deadline set out below.
Also within ten days of the present letter, PIAC is to file proof of service with the Commission.
Commission staff notes PIAC’s submission that it has already copied the attorneys general of Canada and of Quebec on its application. PIAC is nonetheless to serve this letter and the notice described above on these attorneys general within the specified period.
As a result of the need to notify the attorney general of the constitutional question, the deadline for the filing of answers and interventions in this file shall be extended to 29 August 2016. The deadline for a reply by PIAC, should it decide to file one, shall be extended to 8 September 2016.
If you have any questions, please contact the undersigned by telephone at (613) 854-6182 or via email at email@example.com.
