Re: Review of the Wireless Code – Online discussion forum submissions

Dear Ms. Anderson-Kellett:

On 20 February 2017, the Deaf Wireless Canada Consultative Committee (DWCC) filed comments in the second phase of the online discussion forum being held as part of the Wireless Code Review proceeding,Footnote 1 which included links to videos of individuals using sign language that had been posted to YouTube.

In order for these submissions to be considered as part of the record of the proceeding, the DWCC must provide written transcripts or descriptions of the contents of the sign language videos by no later than 27 February 2017.

As noted in a letter sent from Commission legal counsel to the DWCC on 3 February 2017,Footnote 2 the purpose of the online discussion forum was to allow Canadians to submit written comments on the record of the Wireless Code Review proceeding. As further noted in that letter, the DWCC has already participated in other phases of the proceeding by submitting written comments.

If written transcripts or descriptions of the videos in questions are filed for the record, any additional process that is required to allow parties to comment on their contents would be addressed at that time.

Yours Sincerely,

[original signed by]

Adam Balkovec
Legal Counsel
Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission
