Decision CRTC 99-500

  Ottawa, 17 November 1999
  Rogers Broadcasting Limited
Squamish; and Whistler, British Columbia – 199812558 – 199812574
  Applications processed by Public Notice CRTC 1999-100 dated 21 June 1999
  Licence renewals for CISQ-FM and CISW-FM and its transmitter
  1. The Commission renews the broadcasting licences for CISQ-FM Squamish and CISW-FM Whistler and its transmitter CISP-FM Pemberton, from 1 January 2000 to 31 August 2006, subject to the conditions specified in this decision and in the licences to be issued.
  2. CISW-FM originates three hours of locally-produced programming from its Whistler studios which is broadcast simultaneously by CISQ-FM. In order to reflect this, the Commission approves the licensee’s request to amend CISQ-FM’s licence by deleting "with local programming" and adding "with local programming and programs received from CISW-FM Whistler".
  3. These stations operate in single-station markets as set out in Public Notice CRTC 1993-121 entitled Local Programming Policy for FM Radio – Definition of a Single-Station Market. Accordingly, they are exempt from the requirement that, in order to solicit or accept local advertising, one-third of their programming must be local. Nevertheless, the licensee is required, by condition of licence, to continue to broadcast, at a minimum, 3 hours each week of station-produced programming on CISQ-FM. The licensee is also required, by condition of licence, to continue to broadcast, at a minimum, 3 hours each week of station-produced programming on CISW-FM.
  4. The licensee is authorized, by condition of each licence, to broadcast, in any broadcast week, not more than 85% of hit material as defined in Public Notice CRTC 1997-42, as amended from time to time.
  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.
