Re: Part 1 Application filed by 2251723 Ontario Inc. (VMedia) – Undue Preference Complaint against Bell Media – Request for Extension
Dear Mr. Strati,
This is in response to your letter dated 11 September 2020 requesting that Bell Media Inc. (Bell) be granted an extension of time to file its answer to Part 1 Application 2020-0487-8, filed by 2251723 Ontario Inc. (VMedia) on 5 August 2020. Bell stated that since the filing of this application, the parties have been working together to negotiate a resolution to the matters at hand and are confident that a settlement agreement can be completed in the very near future. In light of this, Bell requested a seven-day extension of time to file its answer to VMedia’s application to provide the parties with the time and opportunity to conclude that agreement.
In order to encourage a settlement of this application, and in light of the short extension of time being requested, Bell’s request has been granted. Therefore, the timetable for the Part 1 process for the above-noted application will be modified as follows:
- Bell will have until 21 September 2020 to submit an answer to the application
- Interested persons have until 21 September 2020 to submit interventions relating to the application
- VMedia will have until 1 October 2020 to reply to the answer and interventions
