Re: Broadcasting Notice of Consultation 2017-160 - Request for disclosure of responses designated as confidential

In a letter dated 22 June 2017, Mr. Nanni requested the disclosure of certain responses provided for the record of the above noted proceeding that were designated by respective broadcasting distribution undertakings (BDUs) as confidential.

Staff notes that while Mr. Nanni requested that Eastlink, Rogers and TELUS disclose the confidential portions of several responses regarding set top box audience measurement that were provided in confidence, no requests for disclosure were made of other BDUs that provided, in certain cases, similar responses in confidence.

In order to be fair and consistent, staff requests that BDUs, other than Eastlink, Rogers and TELUS who have already responded to the request for disclosure, provide reasons why, where applicable, the portions of their responses to questions 2, 2.1, 2.2, 3, 3.1, 3.2, 4, 4.1 and 4.2 that were filed in confidence, should not be disclosed on the public record.

Please provide the above by no later than 25 July 2017.

Where necessary, additional process will be communicated at a future date to allow interventions and reply comments regarding any new documents that are added to the public record as a result of the above.
