Re:Telecom Notice of Consultation 2015-134, Review of Basic Telecommunications Services—OpenMedia Application for Costs Award - Request for Extension

The purpose of this letter is to inform parties of the revised deadline for the filing of OpenMedia’s Reply in the above-noted costs proceeding.

On 27 July 2016, OpenMedia filed a procedural request seeking to extend, until 12 August 2016, the deadline for its Reply to Answers to its application for costs filed by potential costs respondents.

OpenMedia submitted that these Answers raised a wide range of issues that could implicate future applications for costs, both for itself and for other applicants. OpenMedia further submitted that it has only limited in-house resources with the expertise necessary to prepare its Reply. As a result, OpenMedia argued that it would not be possible for it to adequately address these issues within the standard Reply timeline. OpenMedia submitted that no participant in the costs proceeding would be prejudiced by the extension and that granting the extension would not unduly delay the proceeding.

No party responded to OpenMedia’s procedural request.

Commission staff agrees that the Answers filed in response to OpenMedia’s application for costs raise numerous important issues and considers that it would be in the public interest to allow OpenMedia the requested extension in order to ensure a full record on these issues. As a result, the deadline for OpenMedia’s Reply is hereby extended to 12 August 2016.

If you have any questions, please contact the undersigned by telephone at (613) 854-6182 or via email at adam.balkovec@crtc.gc.ca.

Yours Sincerely,

[original signed by]

Adam Balkovec
Legal Counsel
