Re: 2011-0666-7 CJRP-FM Saint John, New Brunswick

Dear Mr. Pritchard

This is in reference to your application for a technical amendment to a broadcasting license for an analog radio programming undertaking for CJRP-FM Saint John, NB.

Section 22 of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission Rules of Practice and Procedure provides that an applicant must serve its application on a respondent defined as a person who is “adverse in interest.” The guidelines on the Rules of procedure include a chart of persons generally considered to be respondents (paragraph 61). The list is not exhaustive since parties that can be considered respondents depend on the specific facts of the application.

We note that you have served your application on CINB-FM on 4 April 2011. However, your list of respondents does not include other incumbent/existing services that could also be “adverse in interest.”

As noted in section 7.2 of your application, you have identified that the net impact of this frequency change proposal will result in the station’s population coverage increasing significantly in the 3mV/m contour from 17,600 to 122,389.  Please note, from an economic perspective, the other incumbent radio services in Saint John could also be “adverse in interest.”

In light of the above facts related to the application, you are therefore required to serve the application on the other incumbent/existing services servicing Saint John, NB by 11 May 2011. Note that a document is not served until it is received by the intended recipient. Therefore, if you are serving a person by mail, you must send it in time for it to be delivered on or before 11 May 2011.

Furthermore, as per section 8 of the application form, Respondents, please revise the chart below with the required information as stated in the Rules of Practice and Procedure.
