Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2002-79

Ottawa, 28 March 2002

Cogeco Cable Canada Inc.
Cogeco Câble Rimouski inc.
Saint-Jérôme-de-Matane, Quebec

Applications 2001-1161-7; 2001-1206-1
Public Hearing at Winnipeg, Manitoba
4 February 2002

Acquisition of assets of the cable undertaking serving Saint-Jérôme-de-Matane


The Commission approves the applications by Cogeco Cable Canada Inc. for authority to acquire the assets of the cable distribution undertaking serving Saint-Jérôme-de-Matane, from Télécâble Grand-Détour inc., and for authority to transfer these assets to its subsidiary Cogeco Câble Rimouski inc. The Commission also approves the licensee's request for a broadcasting licence for Cogeco Câble Rimouski inc. to continue the operation of this undertaking.


The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with these applications.


Upon surrender of the current licence, the Commission will issue a Class 3 licence to Cogeco Câble Rimouski inc., expiring 31 August 2003, the current licence expiry date. The operation of this undertaking will be regulated pursuant to the Broadcasting Distribution Regulations. The licence will be subject to the conditions specified in the licence to be issued. It is also 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.


The signals that the licensee is authorized to distribute may be received by direct reception, or from any licensed or exempted Canadian broadcasting distribution undertaking, that is authorized to provide signals to other distributors.


Because this licensee is subject to the Employment Equity Act and files reports with Human Resources Development Canada, its employment equity practices are not examined by the Commission.

Secretary General
