Ottawa, 11 June 1996
Decision CRTC 96-207
Coopérative de Câblodistribution St-Joseph-de-la-Rive
Saint-Joseph-de-la-Rive, Quebec - 952011500
Licence renewal
Following Public Notice CRTC 1996-13 dated 19 January 1996, the Commission renews the licence held by the Coopérative de Câblodistribution St-Joseph-de-la-Rive, for the cable distribution undertaking serving Saint-Joseph-de-la-Rive, from 1 September 1996 to 31 August 2003.
The operation of this undertaking is regulated pursuant to Parts I, III and IV of the Cable Television Regulations, 1986 (the regulations) and the licence will be subject to the conditions in effect under the current licence, as well as to those conditions specified in this decision and in the licence to be issued.
Consistent with Decision CRTC 90-397 dated 26 April 1990, the licensee is relieved, by condition of licence, of the requirement of section 4 of the regulations providing that it must own and operate its local head end. The licensee signed an agreement on 31 August 1988 with the Coopérative de câblodistribution des Éboulements to have signals routed from the local head end of that undertaking.
Also consistent with Decision CRTC 90-397, the licensee is relieved, by condition of licence of the requirement of paragraph 22(1)(a) of the regulations to distribute the local programming service of CIVB-TV-1 (SRTQ) Grand-Fonds, received over the air, given the poor reception quality of this signal. The licensee distributes instead CIVM-TV (SRTQ) Montréal, received via satellite.
Consistent with the same decision, it is a condition of licence that the licensee be relieved of the requirement that it distribute at least four television programming services as provided for in section 23 of the regulations, so long as it distributes only those U.S. television services listed in the current application or as may be authorized by the Commission.
An intervention was received from TVOntario objecting to the licensee's proposal to distribute its educational television service, received via satellite. The Commission draws to the licensee's attention that, pursuant to the regulations and as set out in the revised list of Part III Eligible Canadian Satellite Services (Appendix to Public Notice CRTC 1996-31 dated 7 March 1996), authorization for the distribution of out-of-province educational services not receivable over the air is subject to the requirement that there be no objection on the part of the originating service. In light of TVOntario's objection, the Commission is not prepared to approve the distribution of TVOntario's service.
This decision is to be appended to the licence.

Secretary General
