Nearly 100 Communities in Ontario Acquire TVO Transmission Towers

Ottawa (March 20, 2013) Close to 100 Ontario communities have acquired transmission towers formerly used by TVOntario. The towers can be used by the communities to re-establish free over-the-air television services that their residents would otherwise have to obtain via cable or satellite, including TVO and the CBC; as well as highspeed wireless Interenet, community TV or radio, or cell phone service.

Is Poor Indoor Air Quality Impacting Your Family's Health?

REMINDER: If you use an antenna to watch TV, this message is for you

CBC/Radio-Canada is shutting down its analogue over-the-air transmitters on July 31, 2012.

Are you affected?

If you use an antenna to watch television and receive an analogue signal from CBC Television or Télévision de Radio-Canada, you will need to change how you receive our TV services.

Cable and satellite subscribers are not affected by this, nor are those who receive a digital over-the-air signal. Fewer than two percent of Canadians will be affected by the shutdown of our analogue system.

Ottawa, le 30 mai 2012 -- Dans la foulée des coupes imposées lors du dernier budget fédéral, CBC et Radio-Canada prévoient fermer plus de 600 émetteurs analogiques de télévision le 31 juillet prochain. Ainsi, les Canadiens vivant à l'extérieur des principales villes et capitales provinciales et territoriales perdront leur accès gratuit aux émissions du radiodiffuseur public par l'entremise des ondes hertziennes captées via des « oreilles de lapin » ou une antenne sur le toit.

As part of the PC Party election platform Premier Alison Redford has promised a Children's Physical Activity Tax Credit and Seniors' Activity Tax Credit. The tax credits will coax the young and old to participate in physical activity programs to enhance their health and wellness and reduce the burden of illness on Alberta's health care system. I suspect that most would think this is a great idea. But are these proposed tax benefits enough?
