Ottawa, 11 February 1998

Decision CRTC 98-34

CTV Television Network Ltd.

Across Canada

Administrative licence renewal

1. The Commission, by majority vote, renews the television network licence issued to CTV Television Network Ltd. from 1 September 1999 to 31 August 2000, subject to the terms and conditions in effect under the current licence.

2. This one-year licence renewal is granted solely for administrative reasons. Among other things, it will enable the Commission to consider the licensee's renewal application following completion of the upcoming review of CRTC policies concerning Canadian television programming.

3. The Commission emphasizes that this administrative renewal does not in any way dispose of matters that may have arisen during the current licence term. Any such matter will remain open to comment by interested parties, and to review by the Commission, at the time the Commission considers the application for licence renewal.

This decision is to be appended to the licence.
