Application No. 2007-1634-2
  Application by Carl Gilbert, on behalf of a corporation to be incorporated (OBCI), for the use of frequency 105.5 MHz (channel 288B) with an average effective radiated power of 30,600 watts (maximum effective radiated power 50,000 watts/effective antenna height 97.9 metres) for the operation of the new French-language commercial radio programming undertaking approved in Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2007-95, 21 March 2007 (Decision 2007-95).
  The present application is filed in response to Decision 2007-95 in which the Commission stated that it would only issue a licence to Carl Gilbert (OBCI) if it submitted an application proposing the use of another FM frequency and technical parameters that are acceptable to both the Commission and the Department of Industry.

Barrie, Ontario
Application No. 2007-1641-7
  Application by Trust Communications Ministries to amend the licence of the radio programming undertaking CJLF-FM Barrie.
  The licensee proposes to delete its current condition of licence that reads:

The licensee shall broadcast not more than six minutes of commercial messages per hour during the periods 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., and a maximum average of four minutes of commercial messages per hour during the remaining hours of the broadcast day.

  The licensee proposes to add the following condition of licence:

The licensee shall broadcast up to eight minutes of commercial messages per hour.

  The Commission notes that a monitoring of the station's programming has identified the broadcasting of commercial messages in excess of the current limits as set out in the licensee's condition of licence.
  The applicant's rationale for this proposed amendment is to enable it to satisfy unmet demand for advertising time on CJLF-FM during peak periods and to avoid any further non-compliance relating to the broadcasting of commercial messages.
