Message from Your President

Dear AVLIC Members,

First Vice President, Jocelyn Mark Blanchet and I would like to extend our sincere thanks to all who offered words of support and encouragement during our preparation for the CRTC hearing presentation.  The AVLIC presentation was Tuesday, October 22, 2013.  Click here to view our presentation.


We genuinely appreciate Jane Pannell, AVLIC administrative manager for her groundwork in gathering information for us and for being available to us almost 24 hours over the past few days.  We also thank those who reviewed our speech and offered their feedback.


While we were understandably nervous, we felt motivated by your efforts and desire for VRS for Canadians. Post-presentation, we were overwhelmed with Tweets, FaceBook posts, e-mails and in-person messages of support and congratulations.


We will now be focusing our efforts on our final submission to the CRTC due by November 15, 2013. We will be reviewing the transcripts of the questions that were posed to AVLIC and fleshing out more detail supported responses.  We will be sure to keep you updated with our progress.


Again, we thank you for interest in the presentation and for your overwhelming support.
