BCE 2011 Financials

 
BCE's 2011 Q4/EoY financial report came out on Feb 9th, 2012, which was not what their website had stated would happen.

Earlier, BCE's investor page had stated that this would happen on March 15th.

Anyway, here's more on that :

(And Scroll down a bit.)

... and we wonder, how much of those financials were a direct result of gouging, dirty tricks, skimming, loansharking, leaning down on, nickel and diming, stealing candy from, giving the BOHICA, sneaky tricksy department operations.

Mars Attacks !

I am trying to get a handle on all the processes at the CRTC.

Tarifs:
8740-B54-201200427 - Bell Aliant Regional Communications, Limited Partnership's TN 395
8740-B2-201200443 - Bell Canada, TN 7340
8740-C6-201116476 - Cogeco Cable inc. (Cogeco), TN 36
8740-M59-201116418 - MTS Allstream Inc. (MTSA), TN 721
8740-R28-201116484 - Rogers Cable Communications Inc. (Rogers), TN 19
8740-V3-201116426 - Videotron ltee (Videotron), TN 41

For all the above: comments are due March 21. (as per CRTC letter of Mars 1)

The CNOC Part 1 (filed January 4h, but dated 5th by CRTC) final replies are now due Mars 23rd

Of the R&Vs whose dates have been confirmed by CRTC letters.

Videotron: comments due mars 28, reply on April 9
Rogers: comments due April 2, reply due April 12
Shaw: comments due Mars 26, reply on April 5

Other R&Vs whose dates have not been confirmed by CRTC:

Bell Canada filed March 1 (so would be due April 1/11)
CNOC filed March 2 (so would be due April 2/12)
MTS filed March 2 (so would be due April 2/12)

However, I have learned that "date submitted" is not when the 30 day timer for comments starts. CRTC starts it when it opens the file it seems.

Here is the one that is "official" as per the CRTC Web site:
»services.crtc.gc.ca/pub/instance···Lang=eng

21 Comments for all the incumbent tariffs. (*)
23 CNOC Part 1 final replies (*)

(*) Web site does not show those. Deadlines from CRTC Letters.
(?) letter dated march 9th confirms deadline for videotron of March 28, but web site still says the 15th.

KvF is no doubt mumbling laughing up his sleeve, if he knows about the sheer volume of stuff he just avoided.

The lawyers on ALL sides are laughing our loud that they will get even richer from overseeing the docs for each party.

And Katz is doing his best impression of a Duck, but it isn't helping any - he still has to deal with all of it.

Distributel not only had those ads on the montreal métro, but the also had "human powered" promotions at the entrance to metro stations with front page on "Métro" free newspapers.

They made a neat little video of it:

EDIT: the ad firm which did this Distributel campaign is Speed Expérientiel.

They have done some very interesting work (much of it is on their web site). (Including some for Bell's Fib in Québec City)

Golf season started early this year, no need to make up for a shortfall.

400k is less than 10% of CRTC's budget. If they keep the chairman's position vacated, they are already more than half way there. :P

@teksavvy.com

Sorry. Wrong Math. 400k is less than 1% of CRTC's around 50mil budget.

Not UBB related, but can't pass off this:

»www.torontosun.com/2012/03/31/ct···-comment
"CTV host allegedly tells boss to f--- himself"

>Don Martin, the host of Power Play, a political talk show on CTV News Channel, was not on-air Friday as CTV officials spent the day trying to determine what Martin may or not may have said about George Cope, chief executive officer of Bell, the conglomerate that owns CTV.

>At the party, held at a restaurant a block from Parliament Hill, Martin is alleged to have engaged in a verbal altercation with Dimitri Soudas, the former director of communications for Prime Minister Stephen Harper and now the executive director for communications for the Canadian Olympic Committee. During the course of that altercation, Martin is alleged to have told Soudas that he and Cope could Go f--- yourselves.

Brilliant career ending move!

If he hasn't been drinking, he could really use half a dozen bottles now.

It would be an opportunity for Bell/BCE to confirm they have no editorial control over its media empire by stating that they will not fire the guy because he criticised the CEO of a large corporation.

But because he's in a way a public figure on television, they can still fire him for inappropriate behaviour that damaged the network's image and reputation.

When you're on TV, you're pretty much on the clock 24 hours a day.

He might not be jobless, but certainly would be "encouraged" to go. He might find some trouble with certain political party members or the Olympics for sure.

On the other hand, he might get some sympathy in the "99%" crowd. May be he can find work at Faux News North TV or other non-main stream network or trash talk shows?
