Dr. Katz, who lieattod a re- cent Science Council o[ Canada study on computer communica- tions, suggested to a symposium on communications ant! the home this might be a solution to the impact of cable TV on the Canadian television industry. In an interview later, lie said (hat subscribers to cahlc TV could obtain the programs (hey wished by dialling into a com- puter system. About 135 delegates are at- tending the symposium spon- sored by the Boyal Society of Canada. Dr. Katz, head of the Univer- sity of Saskatchewan physics department, told the symposium he expects computer systems will eventually become availa- ble to the ordinary citizen and the first use of computers in the home would be to provide enter- tainment. Dr. Katz said more than billion is spend annually in Can- ada to produce entertainment programs which reach only a small fraction of the potential audience because they are available only at certain times CRITICIZES CHTC A computer system could offer subscribers the programs they want when they want (hem. He said the Canadian Radio- Television Commission is mak- ing a "sad mistake" in its ap- proach to cable TV. "I think they are dividing cable tad broadcasting and placing them at each said. The CRTC said last year that U.S. stations carried on cable TV systems threaten the exist- ence of the Canadian broadcast- ing system. In July, the com- mission proposed a variety of ways ill which cable could pro- vide money to build up the Ca- nadian television programming industry. The CRTC has followed the Broadcasting Act of 1953 in re- garding cable TV as part of broadcasting. Dr. Katz said tha CRTC ap- proach would not allow the or- other's he derly development of services into the home. He suggested a variety of information could be stocked in computers allowing cable subscribers to get the in- formation they wished. prices slip L TORONTO (CP) Prices in all sectors of the Canadian bond market registered moderate de- clines last week.
