Application No. 2003-1066-5 (e)
  Application by ROGERS CABLE INC., on behalf of itself and its subsidiaries Rogers Cablesystems Ontario Limited, Rogers Cablesystems Georgian Bay Limited, Rogers Ottawa Limited, Rogers Cable Atlantic Inc. (Rogers), to implement an intra-corporate reorganization involving their cable distribution and video-on-demand (VOD) programming undertakings in the above noted localities.
  The proposed intra-corporate reorganization has five (5) steps which are expected to occur simultaneously on 31 December 2003.
  Following the intra-corporate reorganization, Rogers Cable Inc. would be the sole shareholder of a new subsidiary company ("Cable Licensee") that will hold all the licenses to operate cable distribution undertakings in Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Newfoundland/Labrador and the national licence to operate a VOD undertaking. At that time, Rogers would no longer hold any broadcasting licenses and would therefore cease to be a broadcasting licensee.
  The Commission notes that this intra-corporate reorganization would not result in a change in the ultimate control over the cable distribution and VOD licenses referred to in the subject application. Ultimate control would remain under Rogers Communications Inc.
