Ottawa, 4 April 1996
Decision CRTC 96-98
Cogeco Cable Canada Inc.
Kingston and Gananoque, part of the Pittsburgh Township, part of Front of Leeds and Landsdowne Township, part of Kingston and Ernestown Townships, Ontario - 950982900
 Application to add CITY-TV
  - Approved
Following Public Notice CRTC 1995-112 dated 7 July 1995, the Commission approves the application for authority to distribute CITY-TV Toronto, received via satellite from CANCOM, on a discretionary tier of the cable distribution undertaking serving the above-noted localities.
 In approving this application, the Commission has determined that the distribution of CITY-TV is consistent with the guidelines on the cable distribution of distant Canadian television signals first set out in Public Notice CRTC 1985-61 and reiterated in Public Notice CRTC 1993-74.
 The Commission notes that, in an opposing intervention to this application, the licensee of CKWS-TV Kingston, Power Broadcasting Inc., expressed concern about the future impact approval of this application would have on its operations. The Commission has reviewed the intervener's arguments as well as the applicant's reply thereto, and it is satisfied that approval of this application will have minimal impact on the audience and national advertising revenues of CKWS-TV.

 In view of the above, the Commission is satisfied that approval of this application is in the public interest and that the distribution of CITY-TV will enhance the choice of Canadian programming services offered to subscribers.
 The Commission acknowledges the intervention received in support of this application.
 This decision is to be appended to the licence.
 Allan J. Darling
 Secretary General
