CACTUS Oral Comment on Shaw-License Renewal 2010-497

CACTUS oral comments made in response to Public Policy Notice 2010-497, cable license renewals for Shaw Communications' 22 Western systems. Since Shaw appears to operate only 11 access studio facilities throughout these 22 license areas (and operated in excess of 50 in the 1990s), CACTUS requested that at least one access studio be maintained in each license area. (Although oral comments are typically limited to 10 minutes and may not be as detailed as written interventions, they are generally more up to date and can take into account and respond to positions presented by other parties. Both oral and written comments can also be found on the CRTC web site by searching by the notice number.)
