Re: Procedural request to permit late intervention by PIAC in the Follow-up to Telecom Order CRTC 2016-379

The Commission is in receipt of a letter, dated 25 April 2018, from the Public Interest Advocacy Centre (PIAC), requesting permission to intervene in the above noted tariff-setting proceedings regarding disaggregated wholesale High Speed Access (HSA) services. PIAC submitted that consideration of public interest and fairness support varying the rules to permit PIAC to file a late intervention and requested that the Commission exercise its discretion to vary the rules to permit PIAC to file a late intervention.

The Commission is in receipt of a letter, dated 26 April 2018, from Rogers Communications Canada Inc. (RCCI), where RCCI objects to PIACs’ request. The Commission is also in receipt of a letter, dated 27 April 2018, from Canadian Network Operators Consortium Inc. (CNOC), where CNOC supports PIAC’s request.

Commission staff notes that PIAC’s request to intervene in this proceeding has not been filed in the normal comment period provided at the time of the filing of the various competitor tariffs. However, Commission staff also recognizes the valuable contribution of PIAC in regulatory proceedings. On the basis that the current review process to finalize the tariffs for the disaggregated wholesale services is well underway, and to ensure that established timelines will not be inherently delayed or that additional intervention would cause undue prejudice to other parties, comments from PIAC are to focus on issues that are addressed in the requests for information and are to be provided within established timelines.  

In the circumstance, Commission staff considers PIAC’s request to intervene acceptable. PIAC may file its replies to the responses to the requests for information and any subsequent process that the Commission may put in place in this proceeding.

Please contact Bill Lloyd ( at 997-4654 or myself ( at (819) 953-5414 should you have any questions in regards to this letter.
