Decision

Ottawa, 16 February 1988
Decision CRTC 88-102
Seaside Cable T.V. (1984) Limited
Albert Bridge, Hornes Road, Hillside, Hills Road, Marion Bridge, Carabin's Trailer Park, Main-à-Dieu, Neal Cove, Bateston, Catalone and Catalone Road, Nova Scotia - 872584800 - 872585500
Following a Public Hearing in Toronto on 7 December 1987, the Commission approves the applications by Seaside Cable T.V. (1984) Limited (Seaside) for licences to carry on broadcasting receiving undertakings to serve the communities noted above. The operation of these undertakings will be regulated pursuant to Parts I and III of the Cable Television Regulations, 1986.
The Commission will issue licences expiring 31 August 1991, subject to the conditions specified in this decision and in the licences to be issued. This term will enable the Commission to consider the renewal of these licences at the same time as that of other cable systems in the area.
The Commission acknowledges the applicant's plans for the development of community channels and encourages it to promote community interest in and access to these channels.
It also acknowledges the intervention received from New Brunswick Broadcasting Co. Limited regarding the future distribution of the proposed independent television service for the Maritime provinces (to be known as MITV) at such time as it becomes operational and requesting assurance that these cable systems "be built with sufficient capacity" to provide for the distribution of MITV to these communities. The Commission also acknowledges the applicant's reply in which it states its willingness to accommodate this request in the future.
It is a condition of licence that the authority granted herein be implemented within six months of the date of this decision or such further period as the Commission may, upon receipt of a request for extension before the expiry of the said six months, deem appropriate under the circumstances.
