  Application by St. Andrews Community Channel Inc. to amend the licence of television programming undertaking CHCT-TV St. Andrews.

The licensee is relieved from the requirements of sections 10(1) to 10(4) of the Television Broadcasting Regulations, 1987 with regard to the retention of program logs or records.
