RE: Application to review and vary a procedural decision made by the Commission on  30 May 2017 denying an application for a stay filed by the Carriers – Procedural letter

Dear Mr. Cantin,

On 16 June 2017, Bell Canada, Cogeco Connexion Inc., Québecor Media Inc. on behalf of its subsidiary Vidéotron G.P., Rogers Communications Canada Inc. and Telus Communications Company (collectively the Carriers), filed with the Commission an application to review and vary a procedural decision made by the Commission in a letter dated 30 May 2017. In that letter, the Commission denied an application for a stay filed by the Carriers within the framework of the Part 1 application from the City of Gatineau for a Municipal Access Agreement (8690-V81-201703231).

On 20 June 2017, the Commission received a letter from the City of Gatineau requesting permission to file its dispute of the application to review and vary the decision made on 30 May 2017 in the same timeframe as its final reply to the Municipal Access Agreement record, i.e. by 27 June 2017.

The Carriers’ application to review and vary the decision is a separate application under Part 1 of the Commission Rules of Practice and Procedure and, as a result, is subject to the standard timeframes for comments and replies. Accordingly, all interested parties may file their comments with the Commission by 20 July 2017, and the Carriers will have until 31 July 2017 to file their reply. However, there is nothing preventing the City of Gatineau from filing its comments by 27 June 2017.

Sincerely,
