Ottawa, 22 August 1996
Decision CRTC 96-444
3152286 Canada inc.
Quyon, Quebec - 199604947
Acquisition of assets
Following a Public Hearing in Québec beginning on 9 July 1996, the Commission approves the application for authority to acquire the assets of the cable distribution undertaking serving Quyon from France Poupart, doing business under the style of "Télécâble Quyon enr." and for a broadcasting licence to continue the operation of this undertaking.
The Commission will issue a licence to 3152286 Canada inc., expiring 31 August 1998, the current expiry date, upon surrender of the current 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 same conditions as those in effect under the current licence, as well as to any other condition specified in the licence to be issued.
3152286 Canada inc. is owned by Bernard Pilon who holds 62.5% of voting rights and by Sylvain Boivin with 37.5%. The licensee will therefore be controlled by Bernard Pilon.
The purchase price is $15,000. In addition, the purchaser has committed to assume the current licensee's debts and commitments.
In Public Notice CRTC 1992-59, the Commission announced implementation of its employment equity policy. It advised licensees that, at the time of licence renewal or upon considering applications for authority to transfer ownership or control, it would review with applicants their practices and plans to ensure equitable employment. In keeping with the Commission's policy, it encourages the licensee 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.
