Re: Application 2014-0042-3 – Application to amend certain conditions of licence of Avis de recherche and paragraph (e) of Distribution of the programming service of Avis de recherche inc. known as Avis de Recherche by licensed broadcasting distribution undertakings, Broadcasting Order CRTC 2013-380, 8 August 2013- Application returned.
Dear Mr. Géracitano,
This letter is in reference to application 2014-0042-3 by Avis de recherche inc. (ADR) to amend certain conditions of licence for the French-language specialty Category B service Avis de recherche, as well as paragraph (e) of Distribution of the programming service of Avis de recherche inc. known as Avis de Recherche by licensed broadcasting distribution undertakings, Broadcasting Order CRTC 2013-380, 8 August 2013 (Order CRTC 2013-380).
In Applications for mandatory distribution on cable and satellite under section 9(1)(h) of the Broadcasting Act, Broadcasting Regulatory Policy CRTC 2013-372, 8 August 2013
(Policy CRTC 2013-372), the Commission denied an application by ADR for mandatory distribution on the digital basic service. In the same policy, the Commission concluded that it would not be appropriate to maintain the service’s distribution order under section 9(1)(h) of the Broadcasting Act (the Act). In addition, the Commission decided to phase out the mandatory distribution requirement for this service over the next two broadcast years (i.e. by 31 August 2015) to allow the licensee time to adapt its business plan in light of this change.
Upon reading the aforementioned application, the Commission notes that there has been no material change in circumstances, and it considers that the application is, in substance, an appeal of both Policy CRTC 2013-372 and Order CRTC 2013-380, both of which were issued in August 2013. Under section 31 of the Act, decisions of the Commission are final and conclusive.
Accordingly, this application is now considered closed, and the Commission has disposed of all related documents.
