Re: Request to suspend the application filed under Part 1 by the City of Terrebonne for a Municipal Access Agreement – Procedural Letter
Dear Madam, Sir:
On 12 May 2017, the Commission received a Part 1 application from the City of Terrebonne (Terrebonne) for approval of a proposed Municipal Access Agreement (MAA).
In September and November 2017, Terrebonne asked the Commission to suspend the file, indicating that negotiations had been held between the parties which justified the suspension of the Part I. Bell Canada, Vidéotron G.P., Rogers Communications G.P., Telus Communications Company and Cogeco Connexion Inc. (collectively, the Carriers) indicated that they consented to these requests. The file was suspended, the last time until 30 March 2018.
On 28 March 2018, Terrebonne again asked the Commission to further extend the suspension of the file, this time until 30 April 2018, indicating that negotiations are still being held between the parties which justified the suspension of the Part I. On 29 March 2017, the Commission also received a letter from the Carriers indicating that they agreed to the request to further suspend the file submitted by Terrebonne until 30 April 2018.
On 27 April 2018, the parties once again asked the Commission to further extend the suspension of the file, this time until 30 June 2018.
In light of the above, the above-mentioned file is suspended. Terrebonne is asked to indicate, no later than 30 June 2018, whether it wishes to reactivate, withdraw or request an extension of the suspension of its Part I application.
Staff appreciates that the parties are working hard at trying to find a solution through on-going negotiations and hopes that they will come to a final agreement by 30 June 2018.
