Providing Content in Canada's Official Languages

Please note that the Official Languages Act requires that government publications be available in both official languages.

In order to meet some of the requirements under this Act, the Commission's transcripts will therefore be bilingual as to their covers, the listing of CRTC members and staff attending the hearings, and the table of contents.

However, the aforementioned publication is the recorded verbatim transcript and, as such, is transcribed in either of the official languages, depending on the language spoken by the participant at the hearing.

Chairman: Order please.

Good morning ladies and gentlemen and welcome to this hearing of the Commission. My name is Peter Menzies, Vice-Chairman for Telecommunications and I will chair this meeting. With me on the panel are my colleagues, Raj Shoan, Commissioner for Ontario and Stephen Simpson, Commissioner for British Columbia and Yukon. Cindy Ventura will be the Hearing Secretary and Amy Hanley will be our Legal Counsel. Madam Secretary, what is the item on the agenda for today?

Secretary: Thank you Mr. Chairman.

On 30 November 2015, the Commission published Broadcasting Notice of Consultation CRTC 2015-529. The application referenced in this notice is being considered today without the appearance of the parties.

The Commission has received an intervention for the application and it has been placed on the public file for this hearing.

Thank you Mr. Chairman.

Chairman: Any questions from the panel members?

Raj Shoan: No questions Mr. Chairman.

Stephen Simpson: No questions Mr. Chairman.

Chairman: I should emphasize that the matter that forms part of the agenda will be given full consideration by the hearing panel and a decision will be released in due course after consultation with the full Commission. This therefore concludes today's hearing. I wish to thank my colleagues, Legal Counsel and the Hearing Secretary for their assistance. The hearing is now adjourned.

Secretary: Thank you Mr. Chairman.

The hearing adjourned at 10:45 a.m.
