Dear Mr. Brazeau:
Re: Part VII Application by Shaw Cablesystems Limited seeking access to highways controlled by the Ministry of Transportation of the Province of British Columbia on terms consistent with Ledcor/Vancouver – Construction, operation and maintenance of transmission lines in Vancouver, Telecom Decision CRTC 2001-23
On 20 February 2009, the Commission received a Part VII application by Shaw Cablesystems Limited seeking access to highways and other public places within the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Transportation of British Columbia.
In Service standards for the disposition of telecommunications applications, Telecom Circular CRTC 2006-11, 7 December 2006, the Commission stated that it would categorize Part VII applications into two types: Type 1 applications that generally do not involve multiple parties or raise significant policy issues and Type 2 applications that do involve multiple parties and/or raise significant policy issues.
The Commission also adopted the following service standards for Part VII applications:
The Commission stated that it would inform applicants, by letter, within 10 days of the end of the comment period for applications, whether the application is considered to be a Type 1 or Type 2 application, and the applicable service standard.
Commission staff has assessed the above application and considers it to be a Type 1 application. Accordingly, it is expected that the Commission will issue interim or final determinations within four months of the close-of-record.

Acting Director, Competition Implementation and Technology
