Tony Clement Minister of Industry

Mr. Speaker, MTS Allstream has appealed two decisions of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission to cabinet. Appeals of related decisions have also been filed by Bell and TELUS.

The decisions in question concern access to wholesale telecommunications services, which the former monopoly telephone companies are required to provide to competitors at regulated rates and terms.

The government has conducted a public consultation on the appeals and is engaged in a thorough analysis of the issues.

As the matter is before cabinet, it would be inappropriate to comment on the merits of the CRTC decisions or any party’s position.
