Hamilton/Burlington, Ontario
1. Across Canada
Application No. 2005-0849-2
  Application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC)to amend the licence of the national Category 1 specialty programming undertaking known as Country Canada.
  The licensee proposes to amend the following portion of the condition of licence 1a) which reads:

No more than 10% of all programming broadcast during each broadcast week shall be devoted to subcategories 6a and 6b.

  with the following:

No more than 10% of all programming broadcast during each broadcastyear shall be drawn from subcategories 6a and 6b.

  The licensee indicated that approval of the proposed amendment would provide Country Canada with the flexibility to more effectively schedule event-based sports programs and improve the attractiveness of the service to subscribers while maintaining the same amount of sports that is permitted to be broadcast throughout the year.
  The applicant is further requesting to amend another portion of condition of licence 1 a) in order to remove the reference to Country Music Television (CMT).
  The licensee stated that the reference to the Corus-owned service CMT was appropriate at the time of the original licensing decision as Corus maintained a 70% ownership interest in Country Canada. However, pursuant to Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2002-336, Transfer of effective control of 3899071 Canada Inc., 24 October 2002, Corus transferred all of its shares in Country Canada to CBC. As a result, CBC owns and controls the licensee so therefore, the reference to CMT in the nature of service condition of licence is no longer relevant or necessary.

2. Montréal, Quebec
Application No. 2005-0699-1
  Application by Radio-Classique Montréal inc. relating to the licence of radio programming undertaking CJPX-FM Montréal.
  The licensee proposes using a Subsidiary Communications Multiplex Operations (SCMO) channel to broadcast predominantly Punjabi, Hindi, Urdu, Bengali, Tamil and Sinhalese-language programming. Programming broadcast using an SCMO channel is not accessible with standard radio equipment and requires the use of a special receiver.
