File No. 8661-C12-201102350
2011 09 12To:Mr. Robert A. MorinSecretary GeneralCanadian Radio-television andTelecommunications CommissionOttawa, OntarioK1A 0N2Subject:
Telecom Notice of Consultation 2011-77, Review of usage-based billing for wholesale residential high-speed access services (TNC 2011-77) - TheCompanies’ response to application for costs by Samuelson-GlushkoCanadian Internet Policy & Public Interest Clinic (CIPPIC)
Dear Mr. Morin,
1.
Bell Aliant Regional Communications, Limited Partnership, Bell Canada and TELUSCommunications Company (collectively, the Companies) are in receipt of an application for costs dated 1 September 2011 from CIPPIC on behalf of its client OpenMedia.ca in relation tothe above noted proceeding.
2.
Given that OpenMedia.ca was the client for CIPPIC, any of CIPPIC’s costs in thisproceeding should have been paid by OpenMedia.ca. Therefore, if OpenMedia.ca obtainedfunding for this proceeding, there should be no reason why CIPPIC should be awarded in thisproceeding, as OpenMedia.ca would have been able to pay for these costs directly. However,the Companies note that CIPPIC’s application for costs makes no mention of OpenMedia.ca’ssuccessful campaign to obtain financial assistance in connection with its participation inTNC 2011-77. In a “Letter to Supporters” dated 22 February 2011, which was posted on itswebsite

, OpenMedia.ca solicited financial support for a campaign to ”[p]ut together a unitedfront of public interest groups, creators, indie ISPs, online service providers and half a millionCanadians to put forth a well-researched, evidence-based submission to the CRTC”.

OpenMedia.ca further noted in its letter that ISPs Acanac Inc. (Acanac) and TekSavvy SolutionsInc. (TekSavvy) committed to provide matching funds should OpenMedia.ca succeed in raising$15,000 within 48 hours. The fund raising campaign was unquestionably successful.
