RE: 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
The panel appointed to the proceeding initiated by Unresolved issues related to the accessibility of telecommunications and broadcasting services to persons with disabilities, Broadcasting Notice of Public Hearing CRTC 2008-8 / Telecom Public Notice CRTC 2008-8, 10 June 2008, consisted of Vice-Chairman of Telecommunications Len Katz (Chair of the panel), Commissioner Candice Molnar, Commissioner Elizabeth Duncan, Commissioner Suzanne Lamarre, Commissioner Timothy Denton and Commissioner Stephen Simpson.
On 12 January 2009, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) filed its first submission as a party to this proceeding. Prior to her appointment to the Commission, Commissioner Lamarre worked for the CBC for many years. As it has been less than one year since Commissioner Lamarre ceased her employment with the CBC, and consistent with Commission practice in such situations, she has recused herself from the panel.
The remaining members of the panel will render a decision in due course.
