The CRTC has given Rogers Communications the green light to take over Maclean Hunter in a $3.1-billion blockbuster deal.

However, the federal regulator ruled Rogers must sell off CFCN Communications, an operator of tv stations in Calgary and Lethbridge, Alta., and holder of a 14.3% stake in the CTV Television Network.

And some opponents of the takeover say they will appeal the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission decision to the Cabinet.
