RE: Extension Request regarding Telecom Decision CRTC 2019-19 – City of Calgary – Application concerning a Municipal Rights-of-Way Bylaw and a proposed Municipal Consent and Access Agreement

In City of Calgary – Application concerning a Municipal Rights-of-Way Bylaw and a proposed Municipal Consent and Access Agreement, Telecom Decision CRTC 2019-19, 25 January 2019, the Commission directed the City of Calgary (Calgary) and the Respondent CarriersFootnote1 to file with the Commission, within 120 days of the date of the decision, a joint report on the results of their negotiations of certain terms of a Municipal Consent and Access Agreement (MCAA).

The Commission approved several requests for extensions to file the joint report. On 13 December 2019, Bell Canada, Rogers Communications Canada Inc., Shaw Communications Inc. and TELUS Communications Inc. (the Carriers) reported that an agreement had been reached on most of the terms of the MCAA but that there remained outstanding items with respect to “Alignment Guidelines” which currently included proposed terms prescribing how work is conducted and terms for Light Rail Transit projects, “Provision of Mark-ups”, “Emergency of the City”, “Non-Compliant Equipment” and “Appendix 1 – Relocations” on which the parties have not reached agreement.

The Carriers proposed the following schedule to the Commission to conclude matters regarding the MCAA:

By email dated 16 December 2019, Calgary agreed to the proposed process.
Accordingly, the Respondent Carriers and Calgary (the Parties) are to file submissions of the outstanding items with the Commission by 31 January 2020, serving copies on all other parties. Parties are to file their respective replies to such positions by 28 February 2020, serving copies on all other parties.
