  Further to its Broadcasting Notice of Public Hearing CRTC 2006-2 dated 19 January 2006 relating to a Public Hearing which will be held on 20 March 2006 at 9:30 a.m., at  the Convention Centre, 1000 René-Lévesque Boulevard East, Québec, Quebec, the Commission announces the following:
  The deadline for submission of interventions/comments is 23 February 2006.
  Item Applicant and Locality


591991 B.C. Ltd.
Montmagny, Quebec
Montmagny, Quebec
Application No. 2005-1570-3
  Application by 591991 B.C. Ltd., subsidiary of Corus Entertainment Inc., relating to the licence of radio programming undertaking CFEL-FM Montmagny.
  The licensee proposes to change the authorized contours by increasing the average effective radiated power from 8,740 watts to 25,700 watts, by decreasing the antenna height and by relocating the transmitter (maximum effective radiated power 100,000 watts/antenna height 56.9 metres).
  As a result of the proposed changes, the coverage area will be broadened and extended to the South Shore area of Quebec City, including Lévis and the surrounding areas.
  The licensee indicates that the proposed changes will enable it to improve the quality of its signal at Lévis while continuing to serve Montmagny. The signal will also extend into an adjacent area that currently has no local radio service.
  The Commission also notes that the proposed changes in the technical parameters will significantly shift the station's coverage area to include part of Quebec City and the surrounding areas.
  As a result, the station could be considered as serving the Quebec City market, including Lévis and Montmagny.
  The Commission will only proceed with this application at the public hearing if advised by the Department of Industry, at least twenty days prior to the hearing, that it is technically acceptable.
