Procedural Letter: Part 1 application 2014-1040-7 – Technical amendment – rebroadcasting transmitter CBCL-FM-1 Tillsonburg, Ontario

Dear Ms.Kirshenblatt,

This letter is in response to the above-referenced application regarding the relocation of the rebroadcasting transmitter site for CBCL-FM-1 Tillsonburg, a rebroadcaster of the radio station CBCL-FM London, Ontario.

Procedural Request

In your application dated 10 October 2014, you requested that the Commission make an exception to the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Rules of Practice and Procedure (Rules of Procedure) and process your application using an administrative approach. Alternatively, you requested an expedited process if the administrative approach is unavailable. Your rationale for this request is that you are unable to secure the proposed site agreement for the rebroadcasting transmitter due to circumstances beyond your control.

Commission staff notes that your application proposes a substantial reduction to the previously approved service contours, resulting in your programming being available to fewer Canadians. In light of the proposed reduction in service to residents of the Tillsonburg area, staff has determined that it is important to provide an opportunity for public input in this case.

Therefore, your procedural request is denied and the application will remain a Part 1 Proceeding, subject to a 30 day intervention period ending 17 November 2014, and a 10 day reply period, if necessary.

A copy of this letter will be added to the record associated with your application to be made available for public examination.
