CIII-DT-41 Toronto and its transmitter CIII-DT Paris – Technical change
1. The Commission approves an application by Shaw Television G.P. Inc. (the general partner) and Shaw Media Global Inc. (the limited partner), carrying on business as Shaw Television Limited Partnership, to amend the broadcasting licence for the digital television programming undertaking CIII-DT-41 Toronto in order to change the channel of its transmitter CIII-DT Paris from 6 to 17 and to change the technical parameters of that transmitter by increasing the average effective radiated power (ERP) from 4,000 to 97,000 watts (maximum ERP from 4,000 to 165,000 watts) and decreasing the average height above average terrain from 311.3 to 272 metres. All other technical parameters will remain unchanged. The Commission received interventions in support of the application.
2. The licensee indicated that the changes will significantly improve signal reception for the vast majority of over-the-air viewers in the Kitchener area.
3. The Commission reminds the licensee that pursuant to section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, this authority will only be effective when the Department of Industry notifies the Commission that its technical requirements have been met and that a broadcasting certificate will be issued.
*This decision is to be appended to the licence.
