Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2006-251

  Ottawa, 22 June 2006
  Corus Premium Television Ltd.
Hamilton, Ontario
  Application 2005-1385-5
Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2006-31
15 March 2006

CING-FM Hamilton - Licence renewal


The Commission renews the broadcasting licence for the English-language commercial radio programming undertaking CING-FM Hamilton, from 1 September 2006 to 31 August 2013.


The Commission received one intervention in support of this application.


The licence will be subject to the conditions set out in New licence form for commercial radio stations, Public Notice CRTC 1999-137, 24 August 1999.


The Commission notes that this renewal includes the continued authority to make use of a Subsidiary Communications Multiplex Operation (SCMO) channel for the purpose of distributing primarily Tamil-language programming. The Commission reminds the licensee that, as stated in section 3(1)(h) of the Broadcasting Act, it is responsible for the programs that it broadcasts. The licensee is therefore expected to ensure that its SCMO service is operated in a responsible manner and to adhere to the guidelines regarding the provision of SCMO services set out in Appendix A to Services using the vertical blanking interval (television) or subsidiary communications multiplex operation (FM) channel, Public Notice CRTC 1989-23, 23 March 1989.


Because this licensee is subject to the Employment Equity Act and files reports concerning employment equity with theDepartment of Human Resources and Skills Development, its employment equity practices are not examined by the Commission.
