Licence renewals
1.  The Commission renews the Class 3 licences for the cable distribution undertakings serving the above-noted communities, from 1 September 1999 to 31 August 2006.
2.  The operation of these undertakings is regulated pursuant to Parts 1 and 3 of the Broadcasting Distribution Regulations. The licences will be subject to the conditions in effect under the current licences as well as to those conditions specified in this decision and in the licences to be issued.
3.  The licensee is authorized, by condition of licence, to distribute the programming service of the Atlantic Satellite Network (ASN), provided that it is distributed on an unrestricted channel of the basic service.
4.  The licensee may receive any authorized signals over the air, or from any licensed or exempted Canadian broadcasting distribution undertaking authorized to provide signals to other broadcasting distribution undertakings.
5.  It is a condition of each 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.
6.  The Commission notes that this licensee is subject to the Employment Equity Act that came into effect on 24 October 1996 (1996 EEA), and therefore files reports concerning employment equity with Human Resources Development Canada. As a result of a consequential amendment to the Broadcasting Act, the Commission no longer has the authority to apply its employment equity policy to any undertaking that is subject to the 1996 EEA.
This decision is to be appended to each licence.
