Application No. 2002-0285-4


Application by WETV CANADA CORPORATION to amend the licence of the Category 2 nationalspecialty television service known as The Green Channel.


The licensee proposes to change the condition of licence relating to the definition of the broadcast day which reads:


"the period of up to 18 consecutive hours, beginning each day not earlier than 6 A.M. and ending not later than 1 A.M. of the following day,"


by the following condition:


"a 24-hour period beginning at 00:00:00".


The licensee states that a full 24-hour service will ensure availability of the service to its subscribers at any time in any time zone.


The licensee further notes the change in the length of the program day will in no way impact on the nature of the service or any of the other conditions of licence.

Trois-Rivières, Quebec
Application No. 2002-0126-0


Application by CANADIAN BROADCASTING CORPORATION relating to radio station CBFX-FM-1.


The licensee proposes to increase the effective radiated power from 38,400 to 43,000 watts and to relocate its transmitter to a site located approximately 1.9 kilometres north-east of the original site.


The licensee wants to mount the transmitter on a permanent base following the accident and demolition of the Westower tower in April 2001.


The service areas proposed are slightly smaller than the existing areas. These areas are, however, already served by station CBFX-FM Montréal and the rebroadcaster CBFX-FM-2 Sherbrooke.


This application requires an amendment to the licence of radio station CBFX-FM Montreal, the mother station.

The licensee proposes to decreasethe effective radiated power from 100,000 to 48,000 watts and to relocate its transmitter to a site south-west of the current site. The new site is owned by CFCN-TV.


As a result of these changes, the coverage area to the west will be reduced.

Application No. 2002-0341-4


Application by CANADIAN BROADCASTING CORPORATION (CBC) to amend the licence of the new French-language radio station at Vancouver, approved in Decision CRTC 2001-313, which will bring La Chaîne culturelle's service to British Columbia.


The licensee proposes to add a FM transmitter to rebroadcast its programming to Victoria.


The transmitter will operate on frequency 88.9 MHz (channel 205C1) with an effective radiated power of 3,200 watts.


The transmitter proposed in this amendment would fulfill, in British Columbia, one of the CRTC's expectations that La Chaîne culturelle be made available to more than 50% of the francophone population in each province.
