Public Notice CRTC 1999-123
dated 28 July 1999
Licence amendment
1.  The Commission approves the application by Rogers Cablesystems Limited (Rogers) for relief, by condition of licence, from the requirement of section 17 of the Broadcasting Distribution Regulations, to distribute the new television station devoted to religious programming licensed to the B.C. Conference of the Mennonite Brethren Churches (Mennonite Brethren Churches).
2.  In Decision CRTC 99-107 dated 20 May 1999, which approved the new station, the Commission noted Rogers' concerns about the analog capacity of its cable undertakings and also noted that the station did not intend to ask Rogers to carry its service. The Commission notes in this regard that the Clearbrook Mennonite Brethren Church intervened in support of Rogers' application.
3.  The Commission acknowledges the other interventions received with respect to this application as well as Rogers' reply thereto.
