65. The Wikipedia entry you cite confirms everything I wrote

A category 1 license comes with mandatory carriage rights (just as a broadcast license in the US). As I wrote, Sun News was unable to get that license because its programming was not viewed as being "unique" enough given the existence of other news-oriented channels that already had Category 1 licenses (not because the content of its channel was going to have a conservative slant). So it accepted what was then called a Category 2 license without mandatory carriage rights. The category two nomenclature has been revised post the Canadian "digital transition" but substantively the situation is unchanged. Sun News, like Fox News in the US, doesn't have mandatory carriage rights. It is subject to greater content regulation under Canadian law than Fox News is under US law, but that regulation has proven to be pretty toothless.
