Shaw Communications announced late last Friday that it completed its acquisition of the cable system assets of Sun Country Cablevision Ltd. and its affiliated companies Armstrong Cablecom Ltd. and Enderby Cablecom Ltd.

With just 19 employees, Sun is small company offering television, internet, cable telephone and web hosting services in the central interior region of British Columbia.

"Sun Country has built an excellent system which represents a terrific addition to our existing cable properties and we are excited to expand our presence in the Interior of British Columbia" said Peter Bissonnette, President of Shaw.

The company, based in Salmon Arm, British Columbia, was licensed by the CRTC in May 1984 and began operation in November of the same year.

No financial details were released.
