Please find attached the comments of the Canadian Media Producers Association (CMPA).Raisons pour comparaitre / Reasons for appearanceThe CMPA is concerned that the focus of the discussion in this proceeding has been too narrowly focused on broadband as a purely telecommunications service when, in fact, it can increasingly be considered a broadcasting distribution service as well. We submit that the Commission should take into account or, at a minimum, acknowledge the convergence of telecommunications and broadcasting services in its review of basic broadband service and, as a consequence, properly reflect this reality in its decision in this proceeding. Given that we offer what appears to be a unique perspective regarding the importance and the proper scope of this proceeding, the CMPA wishes to appear at the public hearing to discuss our position.
