Radio du Golfe inc.
Sainte-Anne-des-Monts, Marsoui, Mont-Louis, Murdochville and Grande-Vallée, Quebec - 952073500
Licence renewal for CJMC and its transmitters
Following Public Notice CRTC 1996-77 dated 10 June 1996, the Commission renews the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking consisting of CJMC Sainte-Anne-des-Monts, CJMC-FM-1 Marsoui, CJMC-FM-2 Mont-Louis, CJMC-FM-3 Murdochville and CJMC-FM-4 Grande-Vallée, from 1 September 1996 to 31 August 2003, 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 Commission reaffirms the particular importance it attaches to the development of Canadian talent and is satisfied with the annual budgets and the initiatives proposed by the licensee in this respect. It encourages the licensee, during the new licence term, to continue its efforts towards the support, development and on-air exposure of local and regional talent.
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. In this regard, the Commission encourages the licensee to consider employment equity issues in its hiring practices and in all other aspects of its management of human resources.
The Commission acknowledges the intervention submitted by l'Association québécoise de l'industrie du disque, du spectacle et de la vidéo (ADISQ). The Commission notes that the concerns raised by ADISQ have been addressed in Public Notice CRTC 1996-114 entitled "Implementation of the New Approach to Canadian Talent Development".
The Commission notes that the authority granted in Decision CRTC 95-889 dated 7 December 1995 for the conversion of CJMC Saint-Anne-des-Monts to FM has not been implemented yet.
This decision is to be appended to the licence.
Allan J. Darling
Secretary General
