Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2002-296

Ottawa, 8 October 2002

First Nations Cable Inc.
Six Nations, Ontario

Revocation of licence - Exempted small cable distribution undertaking


In Exemption order respecting cable systems having fewer than 2,000 subscribers, Public Notice CRTC 2001-121, 7 December 2001 (Public Notice 2001-121), the Commission announced its determination to exempt from licensing requirements and associated regulations those cable systems that serve small and rural communities, and have fewer than 2,000 subscribers, subject to the criteria announced in the Exemption order attached to that notice. The Commission invited those licensees wishing to avail themselves of the benefits of exemption to submit an application for the revocation of their licences.


First Nations Cable Inc. has confirmed its eligibility for exemption and has requested that its licence be revoked.


Given the licensee's request, the Commission revokes, pursuant to sections 9(1)(e) and 24(1) of the Broadcasting Act, the licence issued to First Nations Cable Inc., for the undertaking serving Six Nations.


The Commission reminds the operator of this undertaking that it must, at all times, comply with the criteria contained in the Exemption order for small cable undertakings, as attached to Public Notice 2001-121.
