Decision CRTC 99-388

Ottawa, 30 August 1999

Metromedia CMR Broadcasting Inc.
Montréal, Quebec – 199903349

Application processed by Public Notice CRTC 1999-100 dated 21 June 1999

Licence renewal for CFQR-FM

1. The Commission renews the broadcasting licence for CFQR-FM Montréal, from 1 September 1999 to 31 August 2006, subject to the conditions specified in this decision and in the licence to be issued.

2. The licensee continues to be authorized, by condition of licence, to make use of the Subsidiary Communications Multiplex Operation (SCMO) channel for the purpose of distributing Portuguese-language programming. The licensee is expected to adhere to the applicable guidelines set out in Public Notice CRTC 1989-23 dated 23 March 1989.

3. It is a condition of licence that the licensee broadcast no more than 20 minutes of paid commercial messages in any broadcast day on the SCMO channel.

4. With regard to the development of Canadian talent, it is a condition of licence that the licensee make an annual payment to MusicAction of $8,000.

5. The Commission notes that this licensee is subject to the Employment Equity Act that came into effect on 24 October 1996 (1996 EEA), and therefore files reports concerning employment equity with Human Resources Development Canada. As a result of a consequential amendment to the Broadcasting Act, the Commission no longer has the authority to apply its employment equity policy to any undertaking that is subject to the 1996 EEA.

6. The Commission acknowledges the intervention submitted by l’Association québécoise de l’industrie du disque, du spectacle et de la vidéo (ADISQ) in support of this application.
