Application 2014-0278-4

CISL Richmond - Technical changes

  1. The Commission approves an application by 8384886 Canada Inc. (8384886) to change the authorized contours of the English-language commercial radio programming undertaking CISL Richmond by changing the transmitter site, increasing the daytime transmitter power from 10,000 to 20,000 watts and decreasing the night-time transmitter power from 9,000 to 4,000 watts.

  2. 8384886 stated that the amendment was necessary because the current transmitter site is no longer usable due to sinking land.

  3. The Commission received an intervention commenting on the application from Channel Zero on behalf of 2308739 Inc. While generally supporting the application, Channel Zero was concerned that provision be made so that a successful applicant proposing to use frequency 600 kHz as part of an application considered at the 27 January 2014 public hearing in Surrey may co-locate its transmitter with CISL. The Commission issued its decision on radio applications to serve Surrey and Vancouver heard at the 27 January 2014 public hearing in Licensing of new radio stations to serve Surrey and Vancouver, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2014-412, 6 August 2014. In that decision, all applications proposing to use frequency 600 kHz were denied.


  1. Pursuant to section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, this authority will only be effective when the Department of Industry notifies the Commission that its technical requirements have been met and that a broadcasting certificate will be issued.
*This decision is to be appended to the licence.
