  (e) application filed electronically
1. Orangeville, Ontario
Application No. 2002-0442-0 (e)
  Application by DUFFERIN COMMUNICATIONS INC. to renew the licence of commercial radio station CIDC-FM Orangeville.
  The licensee is applying to delete its condition of licence requiring it to make payments to third parties involved in Canadian talent development at the level identified for it in the Canadian Association of Broadcasters' (CAB) Distribution Guidelines For Canadian Talent Development, as set out in Public Notice CRTC 1995-196, which for the market of Orangeville represents an annual expenditure of $3,000.
  The licensee is applying to adopt a condition of licence to spend $27,000 annually on local Canadian talent development initiatives.
  This proposed increase follows a series of technical amendments approved in Decision CRTC 2000-275 which increased the station's presence within the Toronto CMA and as a consequence, the potential reach of the station's service.

  Application by the CANADIAN BROADCASTING CORPORATION (CBC) to amend the broadcasting licence for its radio programming undertaking CBU-FM Vancouver.

  The transmitter will operate on frequency 90.3 MHz (channel 212A1) with an effective radiated power of 151 watts.
  The Commission notes that the above-noted transmitter is presently used by the Prince George Community FM Stereo Society (The Society) for its radiocommunication distribution undertaking (RDU), the licence for which expires 31 August 2003, to distribute the programming of CBC's Radio Two service out of Vancouver.
