Following a Public Hearing in Saskatoon beginning on 6 June 1994, the Commission approves the application for authority to acquire the assets of the radiocommunication distribution undertaking serving Wells, from Kingsford Leasing Ltd., and for a broadcasting licence to continue the operation of this undertaking.
The Commission will issue a licence to Wells Best Seniors Association, expiring 31 August 1999, upon surrender of the current licence. The licence will be subject to the same conditions as those in effect under the current licence, as well as to any other condition specified in the licence to be issued.
The price of the transaction is $21,024. Based on the evidence filed with the application, the Commission has no concerns with respect to the availability or the adequacy of the required financing.
This undertaking distributes, in encrypted mode, the programs of CHAN-TV Vancouver, CITV-TV Edmonton and CHCH-TV Hamilton, received via satellite.
