Ottawa, 21 August 1990
Decision CRTC 90-784
La Coopérative des Montagnes Ltée
Edmundston and Saint-Quentin, New-Brunswick - 900187600 - 900188400
Pursuant to Public Notice CRTC 1990-35 dated 26 March 1990, the Commission approves the applications by La Coopérative des Montagnes Ltée to utilize the 101.1 MHz frequency (channel 266A) with an effective radiated power of 600 watts at Edmundston and the 90.1 MHz frequency (channel 211A) at Saint-Quentin.
In Decision CRTC 89-47 dated 15 February 1989, the Commission approved the licensee's requests to operate French-language FM community radio stations in the communities noted above, but rejected the proposed technical parameters. Further, the Commission required the licensee to consult with Commission staff and the Department of Communications (DOC), and to submit revised technical parameters for those two stations. The Commission notes that the technical changes herein approved are in accordance with the Commission's directives and fully address the concerns raised in Decision CRTC 89-47.
DOC has advised the Commission that this proposal is technically acceptable, but that issuance of a Broadcasting Certificate is conditional on the resolution of any problems involving interference with aeronautical NAV/COM services.
The Commission notes the written intervention submitted by the CBC opposing the applicant's use of the FM channels/frequencies requested by the applicant. The CBC pointed out that the applicant's choice of frequencies was in conflict with the Corporation's planned English-language radio stations in these communities. The CBC requirements were identified in its revised Long Range Radio Plan, filed with the Commission in January 1989.
Following receipt of this intervention and the applicant's reply thereto, the Commission held consultations with CBC as well as the DOC. As a result of these consultations, the CBC advised the Commission that it would not object to the applicant's use of these channels provided that the CBC Long Range Radio Plan be amended, substituting alternate channels for those used by the applicant. The Commission has no objection to the change proposed by the Corporation and the CBC Long Range Radio Plan is hereby amended by changing the English Mono channel in Edmundston from 266A to 284A, 104.7 MHz, and in Saint-Quentin from 211A to 271A, 102.1 MHz.
