Global has its origins in a regional television station of the same name, serving Southern Ontario, which launched in 1974. The Ontario station was soon purchased by the now defunct can west global communication, and that company gradually expanded its national reach in the subsequent decades. The national entity was known as the west global system until adopting the Ontario branding in 1997. The network has its origins in a new network first proposed in 1966 by Hamilton media proprietor Ken, the owner of independent station through his Niagara television company.
Financially backed by Power Corporation of Canada, Ken submitted a brief to the board of broadcast governor in 1966 proposing a national satellite fed network. Under the plan, Ken's company would launch Canada's first broadcast satellite, and would use it to relay the programming of ninety six new transmitters across Canada. Ken died in December of that year; his window Frances took over as president of Niagara Television, while former executive and Niagara television vice president Al Burner handled the network application. Ken had originally formulated the plan after failing in a bid to acquire.
The original proposal was widely criticized on various grounds, including claims that it exceeded the board's concentration of media ownership limits and that it was overly ambitious and financially unsustainable. As well, it failed to include any plan for local news content on any of its individual stations beyond possibly the metropolitan Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver markets. Globalization is the process of international integration arising from the interchange of world views, products, ideas, and other aspects of culture.
Advances in transportation such as the steam locomotive, steamship, jet engine, and container ships and in telecommunications infrastructure including the rise of the telegraph and its contemporary offspring, the Internet, and mobile phones have been major factors in globalization.
