since BC has an all news channel would Shaw ever think of getting one for Edmonton
It's in the plans but we don't have any time frames yet. I'm sure that will be announced as time goes on.
Shaw Media doesn't have any applications for Category B News channels on file with the CRTC. I would imagine that Shaw will likely measure the success of BC1 before planning any subsequent services elsewhere. Also if they launch a news channel in Alberta down the road, it will probably be a province wide news channel similar to BC1 and it will probably be produced by Global News Calgary and not Edmonton.
