3. The Commission notes that this undertaking will provide a bilingual service consisting of emergency messages to the Chapleau community.
4. The Commission has considered the circumstances of this application and is of the view that it would be appropriate to apply the licensing policy for low-power radio broadcasting undertakings set out in Public Notice CRTC 1993-95 dated 28 June 1993.
Conditions of licence
5. The licence will be subject to the conditions specified in this decision and in the licence to be issued. Further, as conditions of licence, the licensee must:
" use the station solely to broadcast emergency messages, to test the system one hour each month and to broadcast an annual emergency exercise which could last up to four hours;
" broadcast no advertising material;
" broadcast no musical selections.
6. The licence will only be issued and effective when the new station is ready to begin operation. When the licensee has completed construction and is prepared to commence operation, it must advise the Commission in writing. If the station is not constructed and ready to operate within 12 months of today's date, extensions to this time frame may be granted provided that the licensee applies in writing to the Commission before the 12-month period or any extension of that period expires.
7. The Department of Industry has advised the Commission that this application is conditionally technically acceptable. The Department will only issue a Broadcasting Certificate once it has determined that the proposed technical parameters will not create any unacceptable interference with aeronautical NAV/COM services.
8. In accordance with section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, the Commission will only issue the licence and grant the authority to operate when it receives notification from the Department of Industry that its technical requirements have been met, and that a broadcasting certificate will be issued.
