Rogers owned MSNBC Canada. Canwest never developed Fox News Canada. From Wikipedia: MSNBC Canada was a Canadian English language category 2 digital cable specialty channel owned and operated by Rogers Media in partnership with Shaw Communications and MSNBC. On December 1, 2004 MSNBC Canada was discontinued and replaced by the direct American feed, MSNBC. The MSNBC Canada licence was revoked at the request of its owners ... on December 2, 2005.
In 2003, the (CRTC) rejected a(n) application to bring Fox News to Canada because Fox News U.S. and Global Television were planning to create Fox News Canada. However in 2004, after a Fox U.S. executive said there were no plans to create the combined channel, the CRTC approved an application to bring Fox News to Canada.
