Mr. Murray,

Re: Broadcasting application 2015-0103-1 (CILV-FM Ottawa)

Pursuant to Section 33(4) of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission Rules of Practice and Procedure (the Rules), Commission staff requests public disclosure of the following information that you designated as confidential with respect to the above-noted proceeding:

Commission staff notes that it generally does not grant confidentiality on financial projections and requires this information as set out in question 6.3 of the application form:

(6.3) “Please provide three years of financial projections (revenues and expenses), with and without approval of the proposed amendment(s) for commercial radio.”

In Broadcasting and Telecom Information Bulletin CRTC 2010-961, Procedures for filing confidential information and requesting its disclosure in Commission proceedings, the Commission reminded parties who designate information confidential that they must provide a detailed rationale explaining why the disclosure of the information is not in the public interest at the time they file the information designated confidential.

The appendix to Broadcasting and Telecom Information Bulletin CRTC 2010-961, Disclosure Guidelines, clearly indicates that projections (financial statements and assumptions) for projections years in the prospective licence term for amendment applications are generally public. Commission staff considers that Newcap has not provided any rationale for why an exception to this assumption should apply in this case.

In response to this request for disclosure, Newcap Inc. must either 1) file a revised public version of the document reflecting the determinations above or 2) file a reply to the request for disclosure by no later than by 23 March 2015.

Timeline change

Considering that this request for disclosure may result in the addition of previously unavailable information on the public record, the timetable for the proceeding is changed as follows:

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