Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 7, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Cable television circuit closed REGINA (CP) Tlie Sas- katchewan government lias vir- tually closed Hie circuit on cable television in the province. Under a new policy an- nounced Tuesday, tlic operation of cable television mil either be tlirough a non-profit, commu- nity-controlled organization or none at all, unless 11 private company has the finances to in- stall its own distribution net- work. Public Services Minister Jo'nn Brockelbank announced Tues- day that the government was going to install a cable tele- vision system using facilities of Sask Tel, the publicly-owned communications utility. But beyond that, the govern- ment has been unable to di- vulge details of tlic plan excepl that only the non-profit organ ization can use Sask Tcl's facil ities. A definition of a non profit, ccmmunity-controlledor ganizalion hasn't been out cither. What it boils down to, am Premier Mian Blakcney said i at a news conference Wednes day, is that the province want to assert its jurisdiction ove the field of cable television dis tribution. SEE NOTHING WRONG Tlie Canadian Radio-Tel vision Commission and fedcr. Communications Minister Ho ert Slanbury have said public they can see nothing wron with Saskatchewan's move. But a couple of quesiior have been raised and not ful answered: Is there room for private companies to enter the cable Icvision market in Saskatchc-i an, and how docs the govern- ent decide which community roup will get a provincial li- ence to use the Sask Tel facil- ics? Attorney-General Jloy Koma- ow has answered the first ucstion, Mr. Dlakeney, at his news onference Wednesday, said lere may be room for private ompanies if they want to in- tall their own distribution sys- ems. But when Mr. llomanow was old Thursday thiil it appeared here might be some possibility eft open to private enterprise, 10 asked: "There is room open for pri- vate IAUDWAHE IS PUBLIC The attorney-general said the mportant thing alxmt the gov- ernment's decision is the hard- ware of the cable television op- eration and that is owned by Sask Tel. "Otherwise they (private companies) set up their owr hardware and that's almost im practicable." The second question remains unanswered and Premie: Blakcney wasn't able to sa; which came first, a liccnci from CHTC for a communit) organization to provide pro grams on cable television, or a licence from the province for use of cable television hard- ware. There was no criteria set out on how Uie government would dec-de what organization would be granted a licence. "In cabinet when dis- iisscd the matter, we didn't alk about all these eventua- said Mr, Komanow. There was a principle orc cabinet, a concept, which accepted." IS KEY That principle is that cable elevision should ba available to ivery citizen in the province. The government was con- icrned that had Hie field been eft exclusively to private com- lanies, they would have en- ertxl the more densely popu- aled areas only and "raked" off the profits. Under the government plan :he rental rate will averaged jut over all subscribers in the province. Two private companies now operate in Estevan and Wcy- iurn, both near the American border, but Mr. Brockelbank said they would be absorbed into the new system after a negotiated takeover. Cable television companies generally lease facilities oC tele- phone companies, stringing own cables to individual homes. The Saskatchewan gov- ernment has ruled out that method. Private companies might ob- tain the right to use broadband systems now operated to a lim- it ed extent by CP-CN lele- commiuiicalions. The problem still remains on how lo hook up Individ u a 1 homes, and with the govern- ment's decision the private company probably would have great difficulty in even obtain- ing easement rights from cities or municipalities. So unless there are other ways open to private cable tele- vision operators, they have been effectively locked out of Saskatchewan.

Brown Memorial clinic where drug ad- dicts and alcoholics are treated. Mr. Apps said security has teen tightened at the clinic in the borough of Etobicoke as a result of the illicit trade. He said his ministry launched an investigation early last sum- mer who it first heard "allega- tions" that drugs were getting into the reformatory, formerly the ilimico Reformatory, from outside sources. An interim report of the In- vestigation disclosed the lem, Mr. Apps said in an inter- view, but contained no evidence as to how the drugs were being obtained by the prisoners.

P o 1 i c e arrested the men 'illed with disused vehicles and equipment. The marijuana had been stored there in two sacks and the amount, worth about on the illegal market, was among the most seized in the province at one time. Reginald Bruce Maier, 23, and Dwayne Charles Daniels, 32, .both of Calgary were charged with possession of mar- ijuana for the purpose of traf ticking and were remandet plea or bail when tliej appeared in Calgary provincia court Friday. ort on the investigation next "We are trying to ascertain ow the drugs got in, but we eally don't know." But investigators suspect the upply may come from prison- rs on temporary absence javes and because of the 'open setting" nature of the clinic. EASY TO ENTER "U is quite easy to get in and out of the Mr. Apps said. "It's rather an open set- ing and this makes it very dif- 'icult to prevent drugs from go- ng in." It would be simple for drugs to be dropped over the ience surrounding the property where they could be picked up by an inmate, he said. However, security has been tightened and more frequent searches and patrols will be made in an attempt to halt the practice. Mr. Apps expected the illicil trad will be resolved early next year when the clinic will be re- placed by cne at Erampton which he described as a "mor- secure institution."
