Lake reduces its current service area. North Shore purchases the assets and obtains a licence to provide service to the areas that Lake will no longer serve.

1. The Commission approves the application by North Shore Cable Ltd. (North Shore) for authority to acquire the assets of the cable distribution undertaking serving Scotch Creek, Celista, Anglemont and Magna Bay from Lake Broadcasting Corp. (Lake), and for a broadcasting licence to continue the operation of this undertaking.

2. The Commission also approves the application by Lake to change the licensed area for the cable distribution undertaking serving the communities noted above by deleting Scotch Creek, Celista, Anglemont and Magna Bay from its service area.

3. The Commission will issue a licence to North Shore expiring 31 August 2005. The operation of this undertaking will be regulated pursuant to Parts 1 and 3 of the Broadcasting Distribution Regulations. The authority granted herein is subject to the same conditions as those in effect under the current licence, as well as to any other condition that may be specified in the licence to be issued.

4. The Commission notes that the transaction proposed within this application represents an intra-corporate reorganization that does not alter the control or management of the licensee.

5. It is a condition of licence that, for community programming and any other programming of a service that it originates, the licensee adhere to the guidelines on the depiction of violence in television programming set out in the Canadian Association of Broadcasters' Voluntary Code Regarding Violence in Television Programming, as amended from time to time and approved by the Commission.
