Ottawa, 23 September 1999
Decision CRTC 99-441
3098-9289 Québec inc.
Maniwaki, Quebec - 199906401
16 August 1999 Public Hearing
National Capital Region
Acquisition of the assets of CKMG-FM
1.  The Commission approves the application for authority to acquire the assets of the radio programming undertaking CKMG-FM Maniwaki from Radio CKMG inc., and for a broadcasting licence to continue the operation of this undertaking.
2.  The Commission will issue a licence to 3098-9289 Québec inc., expiring 31 August 2004, the expiry date of the current licence, upon surrender of the current licence. The licence will be subject to the conditions specified in the licence to be issued.
3.  The price of the transaction is $90,000. Based on the evidence filed with the application, the Commission has no concerns with respect to the availability or the adequacy of the required financing.
4.  The Commission notes that this station has been unprofitable over the three years preceeding filing of this application. As reiterated in Public Notice CRTC 1998-41 Commercial Radio Policy 1998, specific proposals for tangible benefits are not required. The Commission is of the view that approval of this application is in the public interest as CKMG-FM will be maintained as a viable, local radio service to Maniwaki.
5.  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.
