CHRC Québec - Acquisition of assets - Addition of a condition of licence


In CHRC Québec - Acquisition of assets, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2008-128 , 26 June 2008 (Broadcasting Decision 2008-128 ), the Commission conditionally approved the application by 9183-9084 Québec inc. to acquire the assets of the French-language radio programming undertaking CHRC Québec and for a broadcasting licence to continue the operation of the undertaking.


In a letter dated 11 August 2008, the Commission confirmed to the licensee that it had met all the conditions of approval set out in Broadcasting Decision 2008-128 , including that regarding local programming. In the letter, the Commission reminded the licensee that, as set out in Broadcasting Decision 2008-128 , the Commission could decide to impose 9183-9084 Québec inc.'s new local programming proposal as a condition of licence.


Given the significance of local news coverage, the Commission considers it appropriate to impose 9183-9084 Québec inc.'s new local programming proposal as a condition of licence. Accordingly, CHRC Québec's licence is also subject to the following condition of licence:

In each broadcast week, the licensee shall broadcast, at a minimum, 115 minutes of News (subcategory 11) programming.


For the purpose of this condition, "broadcast week" shall have the same meaning as that set out in Radio Regulations, 1986.

  Secretary General
