Re: Modification of deadlines related to Unresolved issues related to the accessibility of telecommunications and broadcasting services for persons with disabilities, Broadcasting Notice of Public Hearing CRTC 2008-8 and Telecom Public Notice CRTC 2008-8 (PN 2008-8)

The Commission notes that Saskatchewan Telecommunications requested that the Commission extend the deadline(s) to file responses to the 19 December 2008 interrogatories, or to file final reply comments, or both to 26 January 2009. TELUS Communications Company supported this request and also requested an extension to the deadline to file responses to the 19 December 2008 interrogatories to 26 January 2009.

The Commission finds it appropriate to extend the deadline for parties to file responses to the 19 December 2008 interrogatories to 26 January 2009. The deadline for parties to submit comments on the responses to the 19 December 2008 interrogatories is 3 February 2009.
