Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 14, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday. March 14, 1974 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD 11 Taber radio hearing set VANCOUVER (CP) The Canadian Radio Television Commission split into two panels Wednesday to give quicker hearing to applications. An application by Northern Cablevision Ltd. to take over the cablevision system in Grande Cache, Alta., .brought a strong intervention from R. A. Bremner of Grande Prairie, Alta. Mr. Bremner, a minority shareholder in Grande Cache Developments Ltd., owners of the, cablevision system, told the hearing the company had been squeezed into insolvency under the contract terms imposed by Alberta Government Telephones. He accused the majority shareowner, C. A. MacDonnell of Grande Prairie, of refusing to negotiate with the minority shareholders and of withholding financial information from them. The regulations, of the CRTC stopped him from putting before the commission a new proposal by minority shareholders to buy out Mr. MacDonnell's holdings. In other applications before the commission today: CFCN Television Ltd. asks for a licence for a television station at Medicine Hat, Alta., to rebroadcast the programs of CFCN-TV-5 Lethbridge, Alta.: Monarch Broadcasting Company Ltd. asks renewal of licences for CHAT TV-2 Maple Creek, Sask. and CHAT-TV-3 Bow Island, Alta; and Southern Alberta Broadcasting Ltd wants a licence for an AM radio station at Taber, Alta. This was opposed by Lethbridge Broadcasting Ltd., operators of CJOC Lethbridge, on the grounds that a Taber station would really become a third Lethbridge station. Decisions on applications before the CRTC at the hearing here will be announced at some later date in Ottawa. The hearing continues.

Even as the intellectual newspaper Kuangming Daily hit the streets with its newest attack on the "poisonous" influence of so-called bourgeois music, officials of the Canadian embassy were meeting representatives of the Chinese Friendship Assocation to hand over a list of the works the Vancouver orchestra proposes to play here in September! The Canadians were mildly encouraged, if only because the Chinese said nothing to indicate that the visit might have to be cancelled. Observers pointed out that the Chinese customarily defer decisions on difficult matters until a fairly late stage and still have a lot of time to backtrack if they should decide that the orchestra's visit would be politically inopportune. It is highly urilifely7 that there wilf be any repetition the extraordinary ovations accorded here last year to the London Symphony, the Vienna Philharmonic and the Philadelphia Orhestra. If there was any doubt on this score after the previous outbursts in the press, it was removed by the articles, yesterday. While there were words of qualified approval for Beethoven's Fifty Symphony, on of the works on the Vancouver orchestra's list
