Following the publication of the article below, CCR learned that the federal Cabinet dismissed the appeals calling for a review of the granting of a licence for an over-the-air ethnic station to Multivan Broadcast Corporation. In Order in Council P.C. 2002-779, dated May 8, the government declined to set aside Decision 2002-39 or refer it back to the CRTC. “Multivan can now get down to business,” says Multivan’s counsel Greg Kane. Cabinet considered the petitions but was “not satisfied that that decision derogates from the attainment of the objectives of the broadcasting policy set out in subsection 3(1) of the Broadcasting Act”.
