Ottawa, 6 February 1996
Decision CRTC 96-42
George River Youth Committee
Kangiqsualujjuaq, Quebec - 952195600
 New cable distribution undertaking
Following a Public Hearing in the National Capital Region on 30 November 1995, the Commission approves the application by George River Youth Committee for a licence to carry on a cable distribution undertaking to serve Kangiqsualujjuaq. The operation of this undertaking will be regulated pursuant to Parts I, III and IV of the Cable Television Regulations, 1986 (the regulations).
 Subject to the requirements of this decision, the Commission will issue a licence expiring 31 August 1998, which will be subject to the conditions specified in this decision and in the licence to be issued. This term is consistent with the Commission's practice regarding the licensing of new Part III cable distribution undertakings.
 The Commission relieves the applicant, by condition of licence, from the requirement of paragraph 22(1)(b) of the regulations that it distribute the regional programming services of CH2923 (CBC) and CH2924 (SRC) Kangiqsualujjuaq in view of interference problems with the distribution of these signals. The Commission notes that the applicant will distribute instead the signals of CBMT-TV (CBC) and CBFT-TV (SCR) Montréal, received via satellite, on the basic band.
 The Commission notes that the applicant has proposed not to charge a monthly subscriber fee.
 This authority will only be effective and the licence will only be issued at such time as the construction of the undertaking is completed and it is prepared to commence operation. If the construction is not completed within twelve months of the date of this decision or, where the applicant applies to the Commission within this period and satisfies the Commission that it cannot complete construction and com-mence operation before the expiry of this period and that an extension of time is in the public interest, within such further period of time as is approved in writing by the Commission, the licence will not be issued. The applicant is required to advise the Commission (before the expiry of the twelve-month period or any extension thereof) in writing, once it has completed construction and is prepared to commence operation.

 Secretary General
