In Canada, federal law does not permit foreign investment to be more than 20 per cent in the cablevision induslry. Cable- vision is therefore an industry exclusively controlled by, and providing service to, Cana- dians. Today, some five million Ca- nadians receive their television via cable. Some cities, such as Vancouver and London, Ont., have more than 85 per cent of their population connected to Hie cable TV distribution sys- tems. Mr. Robinson explains why cablevision service in Leth- bridge is restricted to city limits, and why some areas in Ihc city about house- holds do not have Ihe service available al Ihe present time. "Its a question of technology and he points oul. "To supply TV signals to house- holds without significant noise factor, the maximum number of amplifiers we can use is 25, and Urn distance between Iwo boosters is 2.2HO feel. II. costs lo maintain one mile of cable." Therefore, a eablcvision com- pany can serve an area only within tlic reach of ampli- fiers. Because of the buildings and landscape in pail of Iho city, it is not economical to make a long detour of cabling to a tew potential sub- .scrihcr.s, tic ,'.ays. Cahlevision service is.
