Ottawa, 9 October 1996
Decision CRTC 96-671
Askivision Systems Inc.
Borden, Clavet, Denare Beach, Dysart, Goodsoil, Kenosee Lake, Maymont, Raymore, Speers and St. Walburg, Saskatchewan - 199605961 - 199605979 - 199605987 - 199607108 - 199605995 - 199606003 - 199606018 - 199606026 - 199606034 - 199606042
Acquisition of assets
Following a Public Hearing in the National Capital Region held on 26 August 1996, the Commission approves the applications for authority to acquire the assets of the cable distribution undertakings serving the above-noted communities from Earthvision Systems Inc., and for broadcasting licences to continue the operation of these undertakings.
The Commission will issue licences to Askivision Systems Inc., expiring 31 August 2001, upon surrender of the current licences. The operation of these undertakings will be regulated pursuant to Parts I, III and IV of the Cable Television Regulations, 1986. The authority granted herein is subject to the same conditions as those in effect under the current licences, as well as to any other condition specified in the licences to be issued.
The licence term granted herein, while less than the maximum of seven years permitted under the Broadcasting Act, will enable the Commission to consider the renewal of this licence in accordance with the Commission's regional plan and to better distribute the workload within the Commission.
The Commission notes that the applications are the result of an intercorporate re-organization and that beneficial ownership and control will not be affected.
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 applicant 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 each licence.
Allan J. Darling
Secretary General
