The Canadian Cable Television Association (CCTA) is urging the CRTC to hold an oral hearing on Bell Canada’s application for two regional broadcast distribution licences and to extend the deadline for written reply by two months. In a June 18 letter to the commission, the cable association "submits that the potential impact of this application and the need for clarity on policy and regulatory issues are as significant as similar issues raised by Bell in respect to the Voice-over-IP telephony proceeding. In that case, the commission granted a four-month extension and established an oral public hearing."
