Correction – Suspension of the conditions of licence set out in Broadcasting Decision 2004-503 relating to the licensee's obligations to adhere to a Statement of Principles and Practices and to create a Monitoring Committee


The Commission hereby replaces paragraph 7 of Broadcasting Decision 2009-161 with the following:

7. The Commission further notes that the suspension of conditions of licence does not result in an elimination of a broadcasting licensee's responsibilities. The Commission continues to encourage self-regulation of the broadcasting industry through the CBSC. However, the Commission retains its mandate pursuant to the Broadcasting Act, which is to regulate and supervise the Canadian broadcasting system in light of the objectives set out in that Act. As such, the Commission may always intervene in the case of a complaint or in the case of non-conformity on the part of a broadcasting licensee.
