Public Hearing at Kitchener, Ontario

CBF-FM-8 Trois-Rivières - New transmitter in La Tuque


The Commission approves the application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CBF-FM-8 Trois-Rivières in order to operate a transmitter in La Tuque to provide the programming of the national French-language radio network La Première Chaîne.


The new transmitter will operate at 103.7 MHz (channel 279B) with an effective radiated power of 11,300 watts.


The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.


In CFLM La Tuque - Licence amendment, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2002-450, issued today, the Commission approved the application by Radio Haute Mauricie inc. to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CFLM La Tuque in order to delete the condition of licence requiring that the station be operated as an affiliate of the CBC's national French-language radio network.


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, this authority will only be effective when the Department notifies the Commission that its technical requirements have been met, and that a broadcasting certificate will be issued.


The transmitter must be operational at the earliest possible date and in any event no later than 24 months from the date of this decision, unless a request for an extension of time is approved by the Commission before 18 December 2004. In order to ensure that such a request is processed in a timely manner, it should be submitted in writing at least 60 days before this date.
