Appearing Item

1. CKLN Radio Incorporated
Toronto, Ontario
Reference No. 2010-0098-4

Phase I – Presentation by the licensee

This item pertains to CKLN Radio Incorporated, licensee of the community-based campus radio programming undertaking CKLN-FM Toronto. The Commission has received complaints concerning the governance structure, day to day management and operations, programming and ability to remain on-air of the station, which the Commission will discuss with representatives of the licensee.

In addition, the Commission is also concerned that the station may be operating in non-compliance with the Radio Regulations, 1986 (the Regulations), with respect to the filing of complete annual returns and the provision of logger tapes and program logs requests for information, ownership and control, and that the manner in which CKLN-FM is currently being operated is inconsistent with the Commission’s policies for campus-based community radio stations.

The Commission expects CKLN Radio Incorporated to show cause why the Commission should not take steps to suspend or revoke the broadcasting licence in question or why the Commission should not issue mandatory orders requiring the licensee to comply with the Regulations and its conditions of licence.
