The licensee will not broadcast advertising material or commercial messages other than those promoting religious goods and services.

9. Squamish, British Columbia
Application No. 2006-0337-5
  Application by Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to amend the licence of radio programming undertaking CBU Vancouver, British Columbia.
  The licensee proposes to add a FM transmitter at Squamish to broadcast the programming of its Radio One service originating from CBU Vancouver, in order to continue to serve the population of Squamish and surrounding areas.
  The transmitter would operate on frequency 98.3 MHz (channel 252A) with an average effective radiated power of 1,550 watts (maximum effective radiated power of 3,000 watts/antenna height of -389.53 metres).
  The CBC indicates that the lease for the site of its transmitter CBRU Squamish will be terminated on 24 July 2006 and it has been unsuccessful to find an alternate location for its AM transmitter. Therefore, it has concluded that a change from the AM to the FM band is the most attractive technical and economical solution.
