Call for comments on the Governor in Council’s request for a report on future programming distribution models –Letter in support of the Forum for Research and Policy in Communications and the Coalition pour la culture et les médias

Ms. Lau,

This is in response to your letter sent to the Commission on 24 October 2017 supporting the requests made by the Forum for Research and Policy in Communications and the Coalition pour la culture et les médias to extend the deadline to submit interventions by an additional six and eight weeks respectively.

In response to these requests, the Commission published an amendment to Broadcasting Notice of Consultation 2017-359 on October 26th 2017 in which it announced that the deadline for submitting comments in the first phase of this process is being extended to 1 December 2017.

Further, the Commission clarified that parties will be allowed to file new evidence, as well as submit further evidence in support of their initial interventions in the second phase of the consultation.

We are bringing the amended Notice of Consultation to your attention as it is responsive to the letter of support filed by PIAC.

Sincerely,

Original signed by
