CBFG-FM Chisasibi – New transmitters and revocation of licences

1. The Commission approves applications by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to amend the broadcasting licence for the French-language radio programming undertaking CBFG-FM Chisasibi. The first application (2012-0959-4) was to add the following existing undertakings to CBFG-FM Chisasibi’s licence as rebroadcasting transmitters:

2. The second application (2012-0960-2), which was subject to the approval of the first application (2012-0959-4), was to revoke the broadcasting licences for the seven undertakings noted above. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with the applications.

3. In support of its applications, the CBC stated that the above-noted transmitters would better serve listeners as rebroadcasting transmitters of CBFG-FM Chisasibi. The licensee indicated that all the rebroadcasting transmitters added in the licence of CBFG-FM would continue to operate under the technical parameters and contours authorized in their current licences. The CBC added that, although licensed as originating stations, CBFA-3 Weymontachie, CBFH-FM Waskaganish and CBFV-FM Waswanipi have been operating as rebroadcasting transmitters of CBFG-FM Chisasibi since 1974, 1986 and 1980, respectively. Therefore, there would be no impact on the programming broadcast by CBFA-3, CBFH-FM and CBFV-FM.

Revocation of licence

4. In light of the above, the Commission revokes the licence of the four radiocommunication distribution undertakings and the three radio programming undertaking noted above.
