Additions to procedure


In Telecom Public Notice CRTC 2008-19, 20 November 2008, as amended by Telecom Public Notice CRTC2008-19-1, 11 February 2009, and by Telecom Public Notice CRTC 2008-19-2, 12 February 2009 (Telecom Public Notice 2008-19), the Commission did not provide for a right for parties to submit written replies to the written and oral submissions of other parties. Some of the parties to this proceeding have requested that the Commission provide for such a right.


The Commission considers that the opportunity for parties to reply to the written and/or oral submissions of other parties would be beneficial given the important issues raised in this proceeding. Accordingly, the Commission invites parties to file final replies to matters raised in the initial written and/or oral submissions by 24 July 2009. Final replies should be no longer than 10 pages. The receipt of these replies will close the record of the proceeding.


The Commission also announces the following addition to the procedure set out in Telecom Public Notice 2008-19 (addition is in bold text):

15. To facilitate further dialogue among Canadians, the Commission will be conducting an online consultation on the issues discussed in this proceeding. This online consultation will allow the public to engage in discussion on issues and questions relating to this Public Notice. Further details will be provided in a follow-up to this Public Notice. This online consultation will be open from 31 March 2009 to 30 April 2009.
