CRTC 96-108

Ottawa, 12 April 1996
Roger Plourde, on behalf of a company to be incorporated
Manseau, Quebec - 952310100
New cable distribution undertaking
Following a Public Hearing in Vancouver beginning on 27 February 1996, the Commission approves the application by Roger Plourde, on behalf of a company to be incorporated, for a licence to carry on a cable distribution undertaking to serve Manseau and will issue, subject to the requirements of this decision, a Class 2 (fewer than 2,000 subscribers) licence expiring 31 August 1999. This term is consistent with the Commission's practice regarding the licensing of new undertakings of this type.
This authority will only be effective and the licence will only be issued at such time as the Commission receives documentation establishing that an eligible Canadian corporation has been incorporated in accordance with the application in all material respects and that it may be issued a licence.
With the exception of the requirements stipulated in section 23 of the Cable Television Regulations, 1986 (the regulations), the operation of this undertaking will be regulated pursuant to Parts I, III and IV of the regulations and the licence will be subject to the conditions specified in the licence to be issued.
Although the Commission does not regulate the rates of Class 2 undertakings with fewer than 2,000 subscribers, it notes that the applicant has proposed a monthly subscriber fee of $24.95.
This authority will only be effective and the licence will only be issued at such time as the construction of the undertaking is completed and it is prepared to commence operation. If the construction is not completed within twelve months of the date of this decision or, where the applicant applies to the Commission within this period and satisfies the Commission that it cannot complete construction and commence operation before the expiry of this period and that an extension of time is in the public interest, within such further periods of time as are approved in writing by the Commission, the licence will not be issued. The applicant is required to advise the Commission (before the expiry of the twelve-month period or any extension thereof) in writing, once it has completed construction and is prepared to commence operation.
In Public Notice CRTC 1992-59 dated 1 September 1992 and entitled "Imple-mentation of an Employment Equity Policy", the Commission announced that the employment equity practices of broad- casters would be subject to examination by the Commission. It encourages the appli- cant to consider employment equity issues in its hiring practices and in all other aspects of its management of human resources.
This decision is to be appended to the licence.
