OTTAWA - Sun News Network has made what it calls a "do or die" application to the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to be put on basic cable, just like its main competitors.
"We are asking for the same type of licence that CTV and CBC had for 13 and 21 years respectively for their news channels," said Kory Teneycke, vice-president of Sun News.
"We think this is a reasonable request and that it is in the interests of all Canadians."
Sun is launching a web site dedicated to this effort, Canadian TV First, it'll be live shortly with information on how you can help. Below is a copy of the Sun CRTC application.
