RE: Application filed by Novus Entertainment Inc. (Novus) for non-discriminatory and timely access on reasonable terms and conditions to the multi-dwelling unit (MDU) 567 Clarke + Como Development and future MDU developments of Marcon Developments Ltd. and its related companies (Marcon)

Dear Mr. Eaton and Ms. Robertson:

In response to a Commission staff letter dated 24 July 2019 addressed to Marcon, the Commission received on 25 July 2019 an e-mail from Marcon’s legal counsel, requesting a 90 day extension to the 29 July 2019 deadline set by staff for receipt from Marcon of either:

  1. A confirmation that Marcon has no response to submit to the Commission regarding the above-referenced application; or
  2. A response to the Commission in answer to Novus’ application which otherwise conforms to the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission Rules of Practice and Procedure (the Rules of Practice and Procedure).

In light of Marcon’s request for an extension (see attached), staff is rescinding the 29 July 2019 deadline for Marcon to file an answer to Novus’ application with the Commission.

Staff’s preliminary view is that an extension of the deadline for receipt of Marcon’s answer to 29 August 2019 would be appropriate. Staff therefore invites written comments, including detailed rationale, from the parties by no later than 31 July 2019 on whether:

  1. An extension is appropriate;
  2. Staff’s preliminary date is appropriate; or,
  3. Some other date is appropriate.

Staff’s determination regarding Marcon’s extension request will follow forthwith after 31 July 2019.

Staff reminds the parties that all submissions to the Commission must conform to the Rules of Practice and Procedure. As such, comments must be served on all parties, including the applicant (i.e., Novus) and the respondent (i.e. Marcon). Where a document is to be filed or served by a specific date, the document must be received, not merely sent, by that date. Additionally, all submissions to the Commission must refer to the file number noted above, and must be addressed to the Secretary General. Submissions filed electronically must be sent via My CRTC Account, using GC Key.

A copy of this letter and all related correspondence will be publicly accessible through the Commission’s website.

Sincerely,

Original signed by
