Dear Mr. Friesen:

Re: 2012-0636-8

This is in reference to the application by Acadia Broadcasting Limited (Acadia) concerning radio station CKQV-FM Vermilion Bay and its compliance with its condition of licence relating to the origination of the station’s programming. Specifically, Acadia is requesting clarification whether CKQV-FM is in breach of its condition of licence by changing its studio location from Vermilion Bay to Kenora, Ontario.

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 provide the following information:

In CKQV-FM Vermilion Bay – Licence renewal, Broadcasting Decision 2011-530, 26 August 2011, condition of licence no.2 stipulates that:

“The licensee shall ensure that all programming broadcast on the rebroadcasting transmitters CKQV-FM-1 Dryden and CKQV-FM-2 Kenora is identical to the programming that originates from its Vermilion Bay studio and is broadcast on CKQV-FM Vermilion Bay.” (Bold added for emphasis)

In your reply letter dated 13 June 2012, you indicate that CKQV-FM’s studios have been re-located to Kenora. In view of this please comment on how your station complies with the above-noted condition of licence and in particular with regard to the above-noted text in bold.

You are required to provide the information noted above on the public record by 12 October 2012.

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

Yours sincerely,

André Joly
