Bell recently published notifications of public consultations for
four cell sites on St. Joseph Island. While the advertisements do not
specifically mention Deferral Account sites, other sources indicate that this
is the case. The public notification and consultation is required in accordance with the Industry Canada procedures CPC-2-0-03.
The two northern sites (marked one and two below) are 61
metre self –supporting towers while the two southern sites (marked as three and
four below) are 76 metre self-supporting towers.
There is no indication when the sites will be built or when they
will become operational. However, the target date for completion and full operational
status of the Deferral Account project is Aug 31, 2014.
The public consultation times and locations are:
Sites One and Two - Tuesday
23 Jul 2013 at 7:00 PM at Royal Canadian Legion, 1834
10th Side Road, Richards Landing
Sites Three and Four - Wednesday
24 Jul 2013 at 7:00 PM at the Jocelyn Recreation Hall, 1125 P Line.
a related matter, I have heard rumours that Rogers is sniffing around the
Island looking for sites. If anyone has heard any details, please let me know.
