[Broadcasting intervention/comments form]

  Item Applicant and Locality


591991 B.C. Ltd.
Montmagny, Quebec
Application No. 2008-0792-7


Canadian Broadcasting Corporation
Vancouver, British Columbia
Application No. 2008-0840-5


Montmagny, Quebec
Application No. 2008-0792-7
  Application by 591991 B.C. Ltd., a subsidiary of Corus Entertainment Inc. (Corus) to amend the licence of the French-language radio programming undertaking CFEL-FM Montmagny.
  The licensee proposes to move the transmitter from its current location to a new site in Québec City. The objective of moving the transmitter is to achieve better coverage of the Lévis and Québec City market.
  The maximum effective radiated power will be reduced to 78,000 watts and the new antenna height will be at 157.5 meters.
  With this amendment, CFEL-FM would no longer serve the Montmagny market and would considerably increase the population it serves.
  The licensee also proposes to remove the condition of licence relating to maintaining studios in Montmagny.
  As a result of the requested technical amendment, the CFEL-FM studios would be moved from Montmagny to Lévis. Thus, station CFEL-FM would target listeners from Lévis and Québec City.
  The licensee also requested an amendment to the condition of licence relating to Canadian talent development, as set out in Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2006-350, 10 August 2006.
  The licensee proposes to replace the graduate scholarship (École de radio de Montmagny), with the following recipients:

Les Arts de la Scène de Montmagny for 2007-2008 and Diffusion culturelle de Lévis for 2008-2009.

  The licensee stated that the École de radio de Montmagny project no longer exists and it is therefore impossible for it to continue with this initiative.
  In addition, the licensee stated that the contribution for 2007-2008 for the Secondaire en spectacle initiative could not be made because it was too late in the school year. Corus therefore proposes to devote the sum reserved to Secondaire en spectacle initiative to Diffusion culturelle Lévis organization for the 2007-2008 broadcasting year only.

5159 de la Rive Sud Boulevard
Lévis, Quebec


Vancouver, British Columbia
Application No. 2008-0840-5
  Application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to amend the licence of the radio programming undertaking CBU Vancouver, British Columbia.
  The licensee proposes to add an FM transmitter at Vancouver to broadcast its programming service Radio One originating from CBU Vancouver in order to adequately serve the population of Vancouver.
  The transmitter would operate on the frequency 88.1 MHz (channel 201C) with an average effective radiated power of 8,900 watts (maximum effective radiated power 19,500 watts/effective antenna height of 567.2 metres).
  The Commission notes that it approved in part an application for an FM radio programming undertaking at Vancouver in Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2008-117, Licensing of new radio stations to serve the Vancouver radio market (Decision 2008-117). As part of the decision, the Commission denied the CBC's request to operate an FM transmitter on Gabriola Island as well as the application to amend the broadcasting licence for CBCV-FM Victoria, to add an FM transmitter to serve Nanaimo.
  The Commission further decided that the CBC should maintain the operation of its AM frequency in Vancouver to ensure effective coverage in outlying areas.
  The proposed technical parameters would be the same as those authorized in Decision CRTC 2008-117.
  The CBC is seeking to amend the authority for the radio programming undertaking granted in Decision 2008-117, into a transmitter of CBU Vancouver. The CBC would maintain the AM undertaking CBU and add an FM transmitter to address coverage deficiencies in Vancouver.
