23. Bathurst, Chatham/Newcastle, Edmundston, Fredericton, Moncton and Saint John, New Brunswick and St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador
Application No. 2005-1501-7
  Application by Rogers Cable Communications Inc. (Rogers) for a regional licence for the Class 1 cable distribution undertakings serving the above-noted locations.
  Rogers is currently operating those undertakings under separate Class 1 licences, which are expiring 31 August 2006.
  Rogers proposes to delete the condition of licence requiring that it remove commercial messages which are likely to have a negative financial impact on Newfoundland Broadcasting Company Limited (NTV) from the Atlantic Satellite Network (ASN) service distributed in St. John's.
  Rogers requests that the authority granted under Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2005-198 for its systems in various locations in Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Newfoundland and Labrador, which relates to the distribution on a digital discretionary basis of Canadian distant television signals and a second set of U.S. 4+1 signals, be extended to the undertaking serving St. John's.
  Rogers proposes to redefine the licensed area for the undertaking serving St. John's to reflect the expansion of the residential areas.
  Rogers proposes a "zone-based" approach to community programming. The proposal can be summarized as follows:
  (1) For the purpose of community programming, the licensed areas would be divided into eight zones (six in New Brunswick and two in Newfoundland and Labrador). Each zone would include a Class 1 or 2 licensed area with its own headend and studio facilities interconnected with 5-10 smaller licensed areas (i.e. Class 2 and/or 3 licensed areas).
  (2) For each licensed area within a zone, Rogers would comply with the minimum requirements for 60% and 30% local community and community access programming set out in the Broadcasting Distribution Regulations (the Regulations). Programming that is produced elsewhere within the same province would qualify to meet these requirements.
  (3) To ensure adequate reflection of communities, Rogers would commit to broadcast in each zone, a minimum of 40% local community and 20% community access programming that originates from any licensed area within the same zone.
  In order to put this approach into effect, Rogers proposes new conditions of licence establishing eight zones that would each be considered licensed areas for the purposes of sections 27, 27.1, 28 and 29 of the Regulations and other conditions of licence affecting subsections 27.1(1) and 27.1(3).
  In Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2005-102, the Commission announced an application by Rogers to amend the licences of its cable broadcasting distribution undertakings serving various localities in Ontario, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador. Rogers proposes a new condition of licence to be authorized to use the 25% portion of the local availabilities for the promotion of its non-programming services (e.g. Internet, telephony and bundle offerings). If this application is approved, Rogers requests that this condition of licence be incorporated as part of the three proposed regional licences in Atlantic Canada covering the existing Class 1, 2 and 3 serving areas.

Application number 2005-1579-4
  Application by Cogeco Cable Quebec Inc. (Cogeco) for a regional licence for the Class 1 cable distribution undertakings serving the above-noted locations.
  Cogeco is currently operating those undertakings under separate Class 1 licences, except for Louiseville (Class 3), which will expire on 31 August 2006.
  Cogeco proposes a condition of licence to permit it to distribute, at its option, the distant programming service of station CFTU-TV, Montreal (Canal savoir) on the basic service of all Class 1 undertakings it operates, with the exception of its undertakings in Sainte-Adèle, Saint-Hyacinthe and Valleyfield, for which CFTU-TV is an extra-regional signal.
  Cogeco proposes to amend the condition of licence relating to the use of 25% of its local availabilities for the promotion of its discretionary programming services to allow the promotion of non-programming services, such as Internet access and local telephone service.
  Cogeco has also requested in a separate application (2006-0167-6) that will be considered in the present proceeding, to add a condition of licence, to permit it to distribute, in digital mode and on a discretionary basis, a second set of signals that provides the programming of the four US commercial networks (CBS, NBC, ABC, FOX) and of the non-commercial PBS network as well as the Canadian television services provided for in the List of Part 3 Eligible Satellite Services.
  For its cable distribution undertaking serving Drummondville, Cogeco is seeking, by condition of licence, to be relieved of the requirement under subsection 17(2) of the Broadcasting Distribution Regulations to distribute the local signal of CKTM-TV (SRC) Trois-Rivières on the basic band. In its place, the licensee would distribute, on channel 13, the local signal of CKSH-TV (SRC) Sherbrooke.
  For its cable distribution undertaking serving Louiseville, Cogeco proposes to add a condition of licence, to permit it to distribute, on a discretionary basis, the extra-regional programming service CKMI-TV (Global) Quebec City.
