Notice of applications received
Deadline for submission of interventions/comments: 27 April 2010
Correction to item 2 in the English-language version only
Further to Broadcasting Notice of Consultation 2010-174, dated 23 March 2010, the Commission announces the following:
The following item in the English-language version is amended and the change is in bold:
Application No. 2009-1500-4
Application by Astral Media Radio inc. to renew the broadcasting licence of the French-language commercial radio programming undertaking CFVM-FM Amqui, expiring 31 May 2010.
The Commission notes that the licensee has requested that the condition of licence concerning the filing of annual reports on the diversity of musical selections imposed in Transfer of control of 3903206 Canada Inc., of Telemedia Radio Atlantic Inc. and of 50% of Radiomedia Inc. to Astral Radio Inc., Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2002-90, 19 April 2002, not be made applicable for the new licence term for the following reasons:
the context that led to the imposition of this obligation never materialized and is completely different now;
of the numerous ownership groups of FM stations in Quebec, Astral is the only one that is currently subject to such an obligation;
the annual reports submitted by Astral since 2003 have demonstrated that the concerns that some may have had related to common ownership of networks have proven to be unfounded.
