CITY-DT Toronto, CHMI-DT Portage la Prairie, CKAL-DT Calgary, CKEM-DT Edmonton, CKVU-DT Vancouver and their transmitters – Amendment to the reporting of tangible benefits spending

1. The Commission approves the application by Rogers Media Inc. (Rogers) requesting that it be allowed to submit, along with the tangible benefits report, a written attestation from an officer of the corporation confirming that spending on tangible benefits is incremental for the conventional television stations CITY-DT Toronto, Ontario and its transmitters CITY-DT-2 Woodstock and CITY-DT-3 Ottawa, CHMI-DT Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, CKAL-DT Calgary, Alberta and its transmitter CKAL-DT-1 Lethbridge, CKEM-DT Edmonton, Alberta and its transmitter CKEM-TV-1 Red Deer and CKVU-DT Vancouver, British Columbia and its transmitters CKVU-TV-1 Courtenay and CKVU-DT-2 Victoria. This replaces the requirement to provide a detailed audited report for its tangible benefits spending. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.

2. In its application, Rogers stated that its request is consistent with a similar request made by Shaw Media Inc. that was approved by the Commission in Amendment to tangible benefits related to the transfer of control of Alliance Atlantis Broadcasting Inc., Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2013-175, 4 April 2013. In that decision, the Commission recognized that incremental spending could be reliably verified in that case through an attestation from an officer of the corporation. Rogers stated that it would file such a written attestation with its tangible benefits report.
