Decision CRTC 2001-478

Ottawa, 10 August 2001

Rogers Ottawa Limited/Limitée
Ottawa, Ontario

Application processed by Public Notice CRTC 2001-76 dated 6 July 2001

Distribution of Jerry Lewis Labour Day Telethon


The Commission approves the application to amend the licence for the cable distribution undertaking serving Ottawa, during the "Jerry Lewis Labour Day Telethon". This amendment will only be effective during the telethon, from 2001 to 2006. The telethon is usually held on Labour Day weekend and lasts about 22 hours.


The amendment will allow the licensee to interrupt the carriage of the telethon on originating station WHEC (NBC) Rochester, New York, in order to broadcast locally-produced segments of the telethon.


The licensee is therefore relieved, by condition of licence, from the requirement of section 7(a) of the Broadcasting Distribution Regulations that it not alter or delete a programming service in the course of its distribution.


The Commission also approves, by condition of licence, the licensee's request to distribute the signal of WHEC, with the locally-produced segments, on its community channel, for the duration of the telethon.
