Ottawa, 31 August 1999
Decision CRTC 99-408
Câble-Axion Digitel inc.
La Patrie, Sawyerville and Compton, Quebec - 199902515 - 199902474 - 199907581
16 August 1999 Public Hearing
National Capital Region
Acquisition of assets and licence amendment
1.  The Commission approves the applications for authority to acquire the assets of the cable distribution undertakings serving La Patrie and Sawyerville, from La Patrie Vidéo inc. and Transvision Sawyerville inc.
2.  The Commission also approves the application for an amendment to the service area of the undertaking serving Compton, owned by Câble-Axion Digitel inc., to include the service area of La Patrie and Sawyerville, upon surrender of the current licences. Thus, new licences need not be issued following these approvals.
3.  In approving these applications, the Commission has taken into account the fact that La Patrie Vidéo inc. and Transvision Sawyerville inc. are wholly-owned subsidiaries of Câble-Axion Digitel inc. and that the transaction thus represents an intra-corporate reorganization without any change occurring in the control or management of the licensee.
4.  In Public Notice CRTC 1992-59 dated 1 September 1992 and entitled Implementation of an Employment Equity Policy, the Commission announced that the employment equity practices of broadcasters would be subject to examination by the Commission. In this regard, the Commission encourages the licensee to consider employment equity issues in its hiring practices and in all other aspects of its management of human resources.
