Public Notice

Ottawa, 11 March 1997
Public Notice CRTC 1997-26
Capital Expenditure Provisions
Attached to this notice is a copy of a proposed amendment to the Cable Television Regulations, 1986 (the regulations). As proposed by the Commission in Public Notice CRTC 1997-25 of today's date, this amendment would repeal subsections 18(5) to (7) of the regulations, effective 31 December 1997. These subsections relate to the regulatory treatment of capital expenditure increases, including the definition of "capital expenditures", contributions by cable licensees to the production of Canadian programming and notice to subscribers. Subsection 18(6) of the regulations currently allows a cable licensee to increase its basic monthly fee by an amount based on the level of eligible capital expenditures incurred during the previous year.
As a result of the proposed amendment, capital expenditures incurred by a licensee after 31 August 1996 would not be recoverable through an increase in the licensee's basic monthly fee, and any increases previously taken pursuant to subsection 18(6) would be embedded in the base portion of a licensee's basic monthly fee on a going-forward basis.
Parties wishing to comment on the proposed amendment must send their submissions to the Secretary General, CRTC, Ottawa, Ontario, K1A 0N2, by Friday, 25 April 1997. While receipt of submissions will not be acknowledged, they will be considered by the Commission and will form part of the proceeding.
Allan J. Darling
Secretary General
