Re: 2011-0792-0 CFEP-FM Eastern Passage, Nova Scotia
Dear Mr. Harrett,
This is in reference to your application for a technical amendment to a broadcasting license for an analog radio programming undertaking for CFEP-FM Eastern Passage, Nova Scotia.
Section 28(1)(a) of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission Rules of Practice and Procedure provides that the Commission may request parties to file information, particulars or documents where needed.
Please answer the following questions:
- The Commission has audited the annual returns for Seaside Broadcasting Organization. The Commission records reflect the following:
- The 2007-2008 annual return was filed on time.
- The 2008-2009 annual return which was due on November 30, 2009, was filed late (December 14, 2009).
- The 2009-2010 annual return which was due on December 15, 2010, was filed late (May 5, 2011).
It appears that Seaside Broadcasting Organization may have failed to comply with section 9(2) of the Radio Regulations, 1986 (the Regulations), relating to the submission of its annual returns for the 2008-2009 and the 2009-2010 broadcast year.
- Please explain, based on the foregoing, the circumstances of this apparent non-compliance.
- What measures have been put in place to ensure future compliance at all times?
- Please provide your plans so as to ensure compliance with regards to the submission of your annual reports.
The Commission reminds applicants that pursuant to section 27(1) of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission Rules of Practice and Procedure:
The applicant may file a reply to an answer or to the document of an intervener with the Commission within 10 days after the deadline for the filing of the answer or the deadline for intervening in the proceeding, as the case may be, or, if a notice of consultation is posted by the Commission on its website, within the time period set out in the notice.
Considering the above request, the timetable for the proceeding is changed as follows:
Seaside Broadcasting Organization
12 May 2011
13 June 2011
The information requested herein should be received by the Commission no later than 28 June 2011, failing which, your application may be returned to be completed and resubmitted with the Commission should you wish to pursue this proposal.
A copy of this letter and all related correspondence will be added to the public record of the proceeding.
