My 29 page document to the CRTC outlining, well, many things against Bell's attempt to throttle the GAS/5410 tarifs. Had no time to proof read it. EPAS didn't work, but managed to submit at 23:57 using their web interface. Don't bother pointing typing errors, handing text, missing sentences etc.

The Usage Base Billing and other restrictions planned by Bell MUST NOT be allowed to pass. Only had a few hours to write this due to confusion at CRTC with regards to deadlines.
Fri Aug 21 2009 To:CRTC Request for Stay of Execution
A request for stay of execution of 2009-484 which is the decision to authorize Bell to start billoing UBB rates in early november. The implementation date is not realistic, especislly when you consider CRTC just began a new process to re-examine some of the aspects of that decision.
