Shaw invades CRTV's cable turf

There are 3 comments on the Campbell River Mirror story from Apr 30, 2008, titled Shaw invades CRTV's cable turf. In it, Campbell River Mirror reports that:

“We would basically construct the infrastructure and then begin to offer services. "It's a lot less than it was to acquire the system.”

It's cheaper to overwire Campbell River than it would have been to buy CRTV, and that's exactly what Shaw Communications is going to do, says the company president. via Campbell River Mirror

I think that alot of people were influienced by thee $3000.00 they were promised if we sold to shaw and that when they decided after the sale went through that it was a nonprofit organization and they weren't allowed to give us the money, we should have been able to revote. And if thats not bad enough. DID ANYONE GET A CHEQUE FROM SHAW FOR THEIR ORIGINAL DEPOSIT? Not me or anyone I know but some people have already received their new shaw bill. Which is alot higher and they didn't sign anything with shaw saying that they wanted them as their cable provider. I decided I didn't want cable anymore when crtv left so they better not send me a bill. And I want my deposit plus the interest at the rate it was back in the 80's. Please why should they have been able to collect the interest on my money it was a non profit organization and interest is a profit how I see it.

9-11 was an inside job. Now that Shaw is running the show, you'll see this more clearly.
