Public Notice CRTC 1999-100
dated 21 June 1999
Licence renewals for CJNH, CJBQ and CJTN
1.  The Commission renews the broadcasting licences for CJNH Bancroft, CJBQ Belleville and CJTN Trenton from 1 September 1999 to 31 August 2005, subject to the conditions specified in this decision and in the licence to be issued.
2.  The Commission has granted a licence term that is less than the maximum of seven years permitted by the Broadcasting Act. This will allow the next licence renewal of the undertaking to be considered in accordance with the regional plan established by the Commission and does not reflect any concern regarding the licensee's performance.
3.  For CJTN, it is a condition of licence that the licensee not carry separate commercial messages on its Trenton station during periods when the same programs are broadcast simultaneously on the Belleville and Trenton stations.
4.  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.
5.  The Commission acknowledges the concerns expressed in the intervention received concerning CJTN's licence renewal, and is satisfied with the licensee's response to these concerns.
