Re: Broadcasting Application 2012-0805-9

Mr. Benoit,

This is in response to an application by La radio campus communautaire francophone de Shawinigan inc. (Radio Shawinigan) to amend the licence of the radio programming undertaking CFUT-FM Shawinigan, which was published as a Part 1 application on
9 July 2012.

Commission staff notes that, in section 8 of the application form, you did not list any respondents in the context of this application because you did not expect any interference with existing stations. However, in Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2011-660, in which the Commission denied an application by Radio Shawinigan to amend the technical parameters of CFUT-FM, the Commission received two interventions from existing stations opposing the application.

Under subsection 22(1)(b) of the CRTC Rules of Practice and Procedure (the Rules), an application must be served on any respondent. A respondent is defined in part 1 of the Rules as “a person that is adverse in interest to an applicant.” Applicants are required to clearly indicate all respondents and provide them with a copy of their application.

In addition, Commission staff wishes to notify you that the public hearing for your Part 1 application will continue, and the deadline for filing interventions regarding your application will be extended by 10 days following notification of the respondents. We therefore ask that you inform us when you have notified the respondents.


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