Ottawa, 12 August 1996
Decision CRTC 96-380
Radio Communautaire de l'Estrie
Sherbrooke, Quebec - 951422500
Licence renewal for CFLX-FM
Following Public Notice CRTC 1996-56 dated 17 April 1996, the Commission renews the licence for the Type B community radio programming undertaking, CFLX-FM Sherbrooke, from 1 September 1996 to 31 August 2000, subject to the conditions in effect under the current licence, as well as to those conditions specified in this decision and in the licence to be issued.
The licence term granted herein, while less than the maximum of seven years permitted under the Broadcasting Act, will enable the Commission to consider the renewal of this licence in accordance with the Commission's regional plan for community radio undertakings across Canada and to better distribute the workload within the Commission. This term is not reflective of any Commission concern regarding the licensee's performance.
It is a condition of licence that the licensee broadcast no more than 6 minutes of advertising in any hour of broadcast, and that it broadcast no more than an average of 4 minutes of advertising for every hour of broadcast up to a total of 504 minutes of advertising per week, in accordance with the community radio policy for Type B stations.
Notwithstanding the above, the Commission authorizes the licensee to broadcast up to 8 minutes of advertising per hour during ethnic programs.
The Commission notes that the station will broadcast a minimum of 8% Category 3 music (Traditional and Special Interest) as a percentage of overall music programming.
In Public Notice CRTC 1992-59 dated 1 September 1992 and entitled "Implementation of an Employment Equity Policy", the Commission announced that the employment equity practices of broadcasters would be subject to examination by the Commission. It considers that community radio stations should be particularly sensitive to this issue in order to reflect fully the communities they serve. It encourages the licensee to consider employment equity issues in its hiring practices and in all other aspects of its management of human resources.
This licence is to be appended to the licence.
Allan J. Darling
Secretary General
