CIRA cancels .ca TBR again - moves to Dec 1

Disappointing to hear yet another TBR is cancelled.  It actually went through but had a review by CIRA and was cancelled later into the evening.  Here is the news release.

CIRA Cancels TBR Session November 24, 2010

Ottawa, November 24, 2010 - CIRA plays a stewardship role in managing the .CA domain space on behalf of all Canadians. This entails a responsibility to ensure that our processes meet the highest standards. We have encountered an issue that has affected the integrity of today’s TBR session.

Ambiguity in the usage of some fields created the situation where some Registrars were not able to participate in the session. This was not a result of any changes to the new .CA registry system nor the TBR system, which remains unchanged. Accordingly, there will be no changes to either of these systems as a result of this issue.

Fair and equal access is an important aspect of the TBR process. As today’s session was not fair and equitable to all participants, we have cancelled today’s TBR.

The TBR session of December 1, 2010 will include the exact same domain names as were in the November 24, 2010 session. No domain names will be added or removed from this list. Domain names cancelled after November 18, 2010 at 9:45 a.m. (ET) will be part of the December 8, 2010 TBR session.

We understand the disruption this has caused and apologize for the inconvenience. We are strongly committed to ensuring the integrity of the TBR session and have acted accordingly.
