Ottawa, 15 November 1996
Decision CRTC 96-758
Télédistribution Câblouis inc.
Saint-Honoré (Témiscouata); Cabano, Saint-Louis-du-Ha!Ha!, Notre-Dame-du-Lac and Dégelis, Quebec - 199608246
Acquisition of assets
Following a Public Hearing in Vancouer beginning on 23 September 1996, the Commission approves the application for authority to acquire the assets of the cable distribution undertaking serving Saint-Honoré (Témiscouata) from Télé-Câble Charlevoix (1977) inc.
The Commission also approves the licensee's proposal to delete the local head end at Saint-Honoré and to link this undertaking by optical fibre to the head end of the cable distribution undertaking serving Cabano, Saint-Louis-du-Ha!Ha!, Notre-Dame-du-Lac and Dégelis, also owned by the applicant. Therefore, no new licence will be issued with respect to the undertaking serving Saint-Honoré, as had been requested by the applicant. The authority granted herein will become effective upon surrender of the current licence issued to Télé-Câble Charlevoix (1977) inc.
The price of the transaction is $65,550. Based on the evidence filed with the application, the Commission has no concerns with respect to the availability or the adequacy of the required financing.
The Commission reminds the purchaser of its longstanding policy that subscribers should not be required to pay higher fees merely because the ownership or control of a cable system has changed hands.
This decision is to be appended to the licence.
Allan J. Darling
Secretary General
