If you asking about a full blown community access channel similiar to Shaw Cable,complete with mobile production facilities, the answer is... sort of. TELUS has a community channel that consists entirely of 'talking-head ' interviews that are shot with one camera and then edited and packaged for broadcast. The channel is staffed with the recently dismissed Vancouver CITY TV's on-air personnel from Breakfast Television Dave Geary/Tasha Chu/Simi Sara. I doubt that TELUS will ever set up a channel similiar to Shaw,because it not a condition of license.
You have actually struck a cord your question,because when TELUS was trialing TELUS TV in the late 1990's I was Manager of Programming for the community access channel in Edmonton. There is a huge potential for TELUS to provide ' gavel to gavel' coverage of events that they sponsor as a corporation.
