Andrée Noël and James Stuart Langford have been re-appointed as full-time CRTC commissioners for full five-year terms. In an unusual move, the re-appointments, made June 21, came five months prior to the end of their current terms. Noël's new term as commissioner for the Quebec region will begin November 1 and Langford's on November 16. The move is a surprise because CRTC chair Charles Dalfen was widely believed to be pushing for a reduction in the number of commissioners from 13 (CCR, May 9/02).
