Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2003-508

  Ottawa, 20 October 2003
  Canadian Broadcasting Corporation
St. Boniface and Ste. Rose du Lac, Manitoba
  Application 2003-0209-2
Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2003-44

CKSB St. Boniface - New transmitter in Ste. Rose du Lac


The Commission approves the application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CKSB St. Boniface, in order to operate a transmitter in Ste. Rose du Lac to rebroadcast the programming of its national French-language network service La Première Chaîne.


The new transmitter will replace the existing transmitter CKSB-1 at Ste. Rose du Lac, which operates on the AM band. The new FM transmitter will operate at 92.9 MHz (channel 225A) with an effective radiated power of 5,420 watts.


The licensee stated that the new transmitter will provide improved French-language radio service to the population of Ste. Rose du Lac.


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


The licensee is authorized, by condition of licence, to simulcast the programming of CKSB St. Boniface on CKSB-1 Ste. Rose du Lac for a period of three months following the installation of the new FM transmitter. The licensee will then cease operation of its AM transmitter CKSB-1 Ste. Rose du Lac.


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 20 October 2005. 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.
