Aboriginal Multi-Media Society of Alberta
Cadotte Lake, Cold Lake First Nations, Conklin, Elizabeth Metis Settlement, Fort Chipewyan, Fox Lake, Frog Lake, John D'Or Prairie, Little Buffalo and Loon Lake, Alberta - 890469000 - 890471600 - 890464100 - 890465800 - 890472400 - 890468200 - 890473200 - 890466600 - 890470800 - 890467400
Following a Public Hearing in the National Capital Region on 27 June 1989, the Commission approves the applications by the Aboriginal Multi-Media Society of Alberta (AMMSA) for licences for Cree- (50%) and English (50%)-language FM radio broadcasting transmitting undertakings in the communities noted above on the frequency 89.9 MHz, channel 210, each with an effective radiated power of 10 watts, to rebroadcast the programs of CFWE-FM Lac La Biche, Alberta, received via satellite.
The Commission will issue licences expiring 31 August 1994, subject to the conditions specified in this decision and in the licences to be issued.
In view of the fact that this non- profit corporation will be supported in part by government loans or grants, the applicant is reminded that it should ensure that it retains full control over all management and programming decisions at all times.
In Decision CRTC 89-713 of today's date, the Commission has approved the AMMSA's application for a Cree- and English-language FM radio network licence for the purpose of broadcasting the programming of CFWE-FM.
The Department of Communications (DOC) has advised the Commission that these proposals are technically acceptable, but that issuance of Technical Construction and Operating Certificates (TCOC) is conditional on the resolution of any problems involving interference to aeronautical NAV/COM services.
In accordance with paragraph 13(1)(b) of the Broadcasting Act, the Commission will only issue the licences, and the authority granted herein may only be implemented, at such time as written notification is received from the DOC that it will issue the certificates.
It is a condition of each licence that the authority granted herein be implemented within twelve months of the date of receipt of written notification from the DOC that it will issue a TCOC or, where the applicant applies to the Commission and satisfies the Commission that it cannot implement its authority before the expiry of this period and that an extension is in the public interest, within such further period of time as is approved in writing by the Commission.
