Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2002-424

Ottawa, 10 December 2002

Aéroports de Montréal
Ville Saint-Laurent, Dorval, Pointe-Claire and Lachine, Quebec

Application 2002-0810-0

Deadline to commence operations


The Commission approves the application by Aéroports de Montréal for an extension of the time limit to commence the operation of the English- and French-language low-power FM radio station to serve Ville Saint-Laurent, Dorval, Pointe-Claire and Lachine, authorized in New radio information service, Decision CRTC 2001-750, 11 December 2001.


The Commission also approves the application by Aéroports de Montréal to increase the effective radiated power of the radio programming undertaking, from 0.5 watts to 2 watts.


The licence for this undertaking will be issued once the licensee has informed the Commission in writing that it is prepared to commence operations. The undertaking must be operational at the earliest possible date and in any event no later than 11 June 2003, unless a request for an extension of time is approved by the Commission before this date. In order to ensure that such a request is processed in a timely manner, it should be submitted at least 30 days before this date.


The Department of Industry (the Department) has advised the Commission that, while this application is conditionally technically acceptable, it will only issue a broadcasting certificate when it has determined that the proposed technical parameters will not create any unacceptable interference with aeronautical NAV/COM services.


The Commission reminds the licensee that, pursuant to section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, no licence may be issued until the Department notifies the Commission that its technical requirements have been met, and that a broadcasting certificate will be issued.


Given that the technical parameters approved in this decision are for a low-power unprotected FM service, the Commission also reminds the licensee that it will have to select another frequency if the Department so requires.
