Ottawa, 8 November 1996
Decision CRTC 96-740
Câble Axion Digitel inc.
Compton, Quebec - 199603304
Change to licensed service area
Following Public Notice CRTC 1996-103 dated 18 July 1996, the Commission approves the application to change the licensed area for the cable distribution undertaking serving Compton by including:
- an area northeast of Saint-Isidore-d'Auckland, including the hamlets of Flanders, Island Brook, Lawrence Colony, as well as the Municipalities of Scotstown, Notre-Dame-des-Bois and Chartierville;
- areas surrounding the Municipality of La Patrie, including the hamlets of Petit-Québec, West Ditton and La Petite-Angleterre; and
- an area east of the Nadeau Development.
In Decision CRTC 96-741 of today's date, the Commission has also approved the application by La Patrie Vidéo inc. to change the licensed area for the cable distribution undertaking serving La Patrie by including West Ditton.
The Commission is satisfied that approval of both applications is consistent with the principle of competition endorsed by the Commission in its 19 May 1995 report to the government entitled "Competition and Culture on the Information Highway: Managing the Realities of Competition", that consumers should have increased choice among distributors of broadcasting and other services.
This approval is subject to the requirement that construction in the extended area be completed and the extended system be in operation within twelve months of the date of this decision or, where the licensee applies to the Commission within this period, and satisfies the Commission that it cannot complete the construction and commence operations throughout the extended system 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.
Should construction not be completed within the twelve-month period stipulated in this decision or, should the Commission refuse to approve an extension of time requested by the licensee, the authority granted shall lapse and become null and void upon expiry of the period of time granted herein or upon the termination of the last approved extension period.
This decision is to be appended to the licence.
Allan J. Darling
Secretary General
