Licence renewals
Pursuant to Public Notice CRTC 1996-85 dated 19 June 1996, the Commission renews the broadcasting licences for CKYN-FM Beaver Creek, CKYN-FM-1 Carcross, CKYN-FM-2 Dawson City, CKYN-FM-3 Dawson City (Solomon Dome), CKYN-FM-4 Haines Junction, CKYN-FM-5 Watson Lake and CKYN-FM-6 Whitehorse, from 1 September 1996 to 31 August 2003, subject to the conditions in effect under the current licences, as well as to those conditions specified in this decision and in the licences to be issued.
In Public Notice CRTC 1993-95 dated 28 June 1993 and entitled "A Licensing Policy for Low-Power Radio Broadcasting", the Commission stated that the licensees of low-power radio undertakings should be subject to a condition of licence that would define their programming in such a way as to ensure that they do not change their programming and begin to offer the same service as conventional licensees, without Commission approval.
The Commission has considered the circumstances of these renewal applications and is of the view that it would be appropriate to apply the policy to them. Accordingly, it is a condition of each licence that the station be used solely to broadcast pre-recorded tourist information. It is also a condition of each licence that the service broadcast no advertising material.
Noting that this not-for-profit corporation will be supported in part by government loans or grants, the Commission reminds the licensee that it must retain full control over all management and programming decisions at all times.
This decision is to be appended to each licence.
Allan J. Darling
Secretary General
