CJBC-FM Toronto - New transmitter at Windsor


The Commission approves the application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CJBC-FM Toronto, in order to operate an FM transmitter at Windsor to rebroadcast the programming of the CBC's national, French-language network service Espace musique.


The new transmitter will operate at 103.9 MHz (channel 280A) with an average effective radiated power of 1,450 watts.


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


The Commission notes that in Addition of transmitters of CJBC-FM Toronto at Windsor and Paris, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2002-126, 30 April 2002, an application by the CBC to add transmitters at Windsor and Paris was approved. However, the technical parameters for the Windsor transmitter were not acceptable to the Department of Industry (the Department) and that transmitter was not implemented.


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 9 May 2008. 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 that date.
