The Commission approves the application by Shaw Cablesystems (SBC) Ltd. (Shaw) for authority to acquire the assets of the cable distribution undertaking serving White Rock from Fundy Cable Ltd., and for a broadcasting licence to continue the operation of this undertaking.


The Commission notes that, subsequent to the application, Fundy Cable Ltd. amalgamated with Fundy Communications Inc. and continued under the name of Fundy Communications Inc.


The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.


The Commission will issue a Class 1 licence to Shaw upon surrender of the current licence. The operation of this undertaking will be regulated pursuant to the Broadcasting Distribution Regulations. The licence will be subject to the terms and conditions in effect under the current licence, as well as to any other condition that may be specified in the licence to be issued. The licence, when issued, will expire on 31 August 2002.
