Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 11, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Thu.idoy, November 11, 1971 THI LETHBRIDGE HERAID 13 Govt. aid for CTV networl OTTAWA (CIJ) Tlic idea of government financial nssistiincc.1 for private television is getting a sympathetic; hearing in some Ottawa quarters. Pierre Junejiu. chairman of the Canadian Radio-Television Commission, hinted in an inter- view it is a factor which should he considered in tiie fu- ture of private television. But he said Ihis is a matter which lies with the government and Parliament and not the CRTC. John Reid, chairman of the Commons broadcasting commit- tee, said in an early October in- terview that if the government believes a pr-vate television net- work is important to Canada, it will probably provide financial aid to the CTV television net- work within five years. Commenting on Mr. field's statement, CTV president Mur- ray Chercover said the principle of public assistance is valid but lie would prefer an indirect method. The discussion revolves j around the financial health of; private television in Canada. j The threat posed to Canadian television by U.S. border sta- tions carried on cable television systems is of continuing CRTC concern. The commission has said Ca- nadian advertising r e ve n u e flows to these U.S. television stations as they attract Cana- dian viewers through cable TV. This affects Ihe revenue position of Ihe Canadian slations. Mr. Chercover also has said lhat CTV is financially hard- pressed to meet such CRTC re- quirements as increased Cana- dian content in programming and extension of service to new regions of Canada. While CTV slations as a group are understood to be making money, some of the smaller net- work affiliates rely on support from the larger stations to carry on. Mr. Chercover has suggested the governmenl could provide microwave transmission facili- ties to carry television pro- grams across the country. This would relieve the networks of a large expense. Other observers say that the government has created an elaborate system of incentives and export support in order to encourage development in cer- tain industries like oil and min- ing. The same could be done with broadcasting. Russian military cargo steaming toward India THERE'S A CITY OVER THERE!

Three Soviet merchant ships left the Black Sea last week en route to India with military cargo, the sources said. One ship had eight aircraft crates lashed to its deck. De- tails of the rest of the cargo j were not known, although intel- ligence sources described it as military in nature. The Indian Air Force already has an estimated 12 squadrons of Soviet-built MiG-2l fighters and SU-7 lighter-bombers, along with other Russian-furnished army, navy and air equipment An Indian air squadron consists of 20 to 24 planes. Meanwhile, U.S. sources re- port that the last of 10 Soviet Cub transport planes landed al New Delhi Nov. 3. I They were believed to be bring-; ing spare parts for military i gear previously supplied by the Russians. SIGNED A TREATY The new arms shipments from the Soviet Union were said to result from recent visits to India by high-ranking Russian diplomatic and military offi- cials, after the signing in Au- gust of a Soviet-Indian treaty of friendship and co-operation. These developments, coupled helping the Pakistanis crush in- with recent moves by Pakistan surRonls in Kast Pakistan, and closer to China, serve to under- to improve India-U.S. relations, score how the two rival Com- munist superpowers are back- ing opposite forces in the India- Pakistan dispute.
