Re: 2012-0312-4 CJAM-FM Windsor, Ontario

Dear Mr. Smith,

This is in reference to CJAM Student Media Corporation’s (CJAM) application for a technical amendment to a broadcasting license for an analog radio programming undertaking for CJAM -FM Windsor, ON.

Commission staff agrees to CJAM’s request to update its current application with additional information since its situation has changed since the date the application was submitted to the Commission.

Commission staff notes that CJAM has served its amendment on the incumbent Five Amigos Broadcasting Inc on 12 April 2012.  However, the list of respondents does not include other incumbent/existing services that could also be “adverse in interest.”

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 procedure1 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.

Also, Commission staff note that this application received three interventions before this procedural request was approved. Commission staff is of the view that those interveners should also be served with the application.

In light of the above facts related to the application as noted above, you are therefore required to serve the application to the other incumbent/existing services servicing Windsor, ON, as well as all the interveners who commented on your application by 19 April 2012. 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 19 April 2012.

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.

A copy of this letter and all related correspondence will be added to the public record of the proceeding.

Please note, as of November 15, 2010, the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) has transitioned from Epass to Access Key.
