In the first part of the committee's pre-study of Bill C-31, Simon Lockie, chief regulatory officer of WIND Mobile, answers questions on the bill’s measure dealing with the Telecommunications Act.

Appearing at the committee are the Conseil régional de l’enivronnement de la Montérégie’s Vincent Moreau (executive director), Bruno Gadrat (vice-president of strategic planning and sustainable development), and Richard Marois (vice-president of media relations and coordination).
