The Federal Court of Appeal is expected to rule by mid-March on an application by Telus Corp to change how contribution is collected in 2002. Telus has joined the list of people seeking modifications in the CRTC’s contribution ruling – Telecom Decision 2000-745 – which abandoned the old per-minute contribution assessment in favour of a levy on revenues (NL, Dec. 4/00). But the western telco’s VP of government and regulatory affairs still believes the basic ruling was correct.
