Application No. 2005-1232-8
  Application by Radio Nord Communications Inc. (Radio Nord), to acquire the assets of the radio programming undertaking CKNU-FM Donnacona, Quebec and its transmitter CKNU-FM-1 Sainte-Croix-de-Lotbinière, from 6087329 Canada Inc., a corporation owned and controlled by Mr. Patrice Demers.
  The applicant is also requesting a licence to continue the operation of the undertaking under the same terms and conditions, except the one described below, as those in effect under the current licence, upon surrender of the licence issued to 6087329 Canada Inc.
  The applicant did not propose any tangible benefits in the application given the non profitable situation of CKNU-FM over a number of years.
  The licensee proposes to replace the condition of licence relating to local programming, which reads :
  • broadcast a minimum of 42 hours of local programming per week consisting of news and public affairs as well as community service programming;
  with the standard condition of licence as stipulated in Public Notice 1999-137, which reads as follows:
  • Subject to paragraph 6, it is a condition of licence for commercial FM stations serving markets other than single-station markets (Public Notice CRTC 1993-121), that the licensee refrain from soliciting or accepting local advertising for broadcast during any broadcast week when less than one-third of the programming aired is local. The definition of local programming shall be as set out in Public Notice CRTC 1993-38, as amended from time to time.
  Radio Nord is a corporation with share capital, and ultimate control resides with Jean-Yves Gourd. Radio Nord is licensee of five television stations, one television network and thirteen radio stations serving Abitibi-Témiscamingue, Gatineau and Eastern Ontario. Further, Radio Nord is present in the region of Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean as the controlling shareholder of Group Antenne 6 Inc. for five radio stations. It also has a new station in Montreal.
