Ottawa, 15 November 1996
Decision CRTC 96-749
Slocan Valley T.V. Society
Crescent Valley, British Columbia - 199608238
New radiocommunication distribution undertaking
Following a Public Hearing in Vancouver beginning on 23 September 1996, the Commission approves the application for a broadcasting licence to carry on a radiocommunication distribution undertaking consisting of four low-power television transmitters at Crescent Valley.
Subject to the requirements of this decision, the Commission will issue a licence expiring 31 August 2003, which will be subject to the conditions specified in this decision and in the licence to be issued.
The Commission notes that the undertaking is owned and controlled by a not-for-profit organization whose structure provides for its membership, primarily of members of the community at large, to participate, through the election of the Board of Directors, in the management, operation and programming of the undertaking.
This undertaking will distribute, in non-encrypted mode, the programming services of the Open Learning Agency (Knowledge Network) and CKTN-TV-1 Castlegar. This undertaking is also authorized to distribute, by condition of licence, in non-encrypted mode, the programming services of KXLY-TV (ABC) and KREM-TV (CBS) Spokane, Washington.
The licensee is authorized to distribute these services on channels 39, 43, 47 and 51, each with a transmitter power of 20 watts.
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 commence operation before the expiry of this period, and that an extension of time is in the public interest, within such further periods of time as are 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.
This decision is to be appended to the licence.
Allan J. Darling
Secretary General
