a)  by changing the current definition of "broadcast day" as contained in its conditions of licence, from the period of 24 hours beginning at 12:00 midnight, to the period of 24 hours beginning at 08:00 a.m., to better reflect the scheduling practices of the licensee; and

b)  pursuant to Public Notice CRTC 1995-159 entitled ''Amendment to the Television Broadcasting Regulations, 1987" dated 26 September 1995, to amend its broadcasting licence by adding a condition of licence permitting Prime TV, during Canadian election periods, to exclude partisan political advertising from its calculations of the amount of advertising it broadcasts.

2.  PARRY SOUND, Ontario

Application (199804860) by the CANADIAN BROADCASTING CORPORATION to amend the broadcasting licence of CBLA-FM Toronto, by changing the technical parameters of its low power transmitter, CBLR-FM at Parry Sound. It is proposed to relocate the station and consolidate the facility with the English television station CBLT-TV-3, located north of Parry Sound. The transmitter would continue to operate on frequency 89.9 MHz but the ERP would increase from 50 to 180 watts, upgrading the facilities to a Class A1 station. The CBC states "this modification will economically improve English radio coverage provided to the community and its vicinity".
