Notice Re: Stakeholder Comments on Draft Process - Market Share Offer Control Process

NOTICE TO: MARKET PARTICIPANTS

Re: Stakeholder Comments on Draft Process – Market Share Offer Control Process

On July 13, 2009 the MSA notified stakeholders that it had commenced a stakeholder consultation process in relation to the requirements set out under Section 5 of the Fair, Efficient and Open Competition Regulation (“Regulation”). At that time the MSA published a Strawdog Draft upon which interested parties were invited to provide comment.

In accordance with the Stakeholder Consultation Process, and based upon comments received on the Strawdog Draft, on August 27, 2009 the MSA published a Draft Process on which interested parties were invited to provide comment.

Comments were received from one party during the comment period set out in the related Project Schedule.  In accordance with its Stakeholder Consultation Process, the MSA is publishing the comments received on the Draft.  Those comments can be found through the following link(s):

Capital Power Corporation

For clarity, the process is currently in the ‘Decide’ stage.  The MSA is considering the comments received and anticipates providing a formal response when it publishes a final version of the Process.  That step is anticipated to occur on or before September 25, 2009.  Interested parties can track this process through the Current Stakeholder Consultations link on the MSA website home page: http://www.albertamsa.ca/.

The generic Stakeholder Consultation Process can be found on the MSA website through the following link: http://www.albertamsa.ca/140.html. We appreciate your participation in these matters.

Yours truly,
