Looks like Global TV is now a Calgary owned company.

I just have to ask... Does this mean Global will all of a sudden join with Shaw to tell the CRT to NOT force cable companies to pay revenue to the local TV stations?

It'll be interesting to see what becomes of the local staff and offices. HQ will almost certainly move to Calgary.

This is a good news bad news scenario.

Great. Calgary sucks more life out of Winnipeg. I really hate that city.

How many people do you think are going? A huge hole? Geeze let's stay grounded here eh...

As for head offices? I borrowed this from a poster in another forum. Head offices in Canada:
http://www.financialpost.com/magazine/fp500/list.html
TOP 800 -Winnipeg: 32 + 3 subsidiaries = 35
----------Edmonton: 25 + 1 subsidiary = 26
----------Quebec City: 16 + 2 subsidiaries = 18
----------Ottawa: 15 + 1 subsidiary = 16

450 people out of a workforce of 250,000? A loss to be sure, but one might liken that to a sliver in a finger.
