2. The licensee is relieved from the requirement of section 10.1 of the Radio Regulations, 1986 that it own and operate its transmitter.


3. The licensee shall adhere to the Canadian Association of Broadcasters' Equitable Portrayal Code, as amended from time to time and approved by the Commission. However, the application of the foregoing condition of licence will be suspended if the licensee is a member in good standing of the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council.
