Telus Communications Inc.’s applications for two regional broadcast distribution licences were pulled from a public hearing held this week as the CRTC seeks more information about an issue raised by interveners in the process. Sources at the CRTC would not reveal precisely what aspect prompted delaying hearing the applications, indicating only that more time was needed for further examination. Speculation is that the CRTC wants to examine in more detail the effect of carriage of the out-of-market signals that Telus is proposing.
