Re: Broadcasting application 2015-0266-7 (CIDG-FM Ottawa)

Mr. Torres,

This letter is in response to your request to designate certain information, filed as part of application 2015-0266-7, as confidential.

Commission staff notes that two documents submitted as part of your application were labelled confidential, i.e. financial projections and Appendix E – Agreement with other stations.  However, in section 9 of your application you only request confidentiality for your financial projections. 

As outlined in Broadcasting and Telecom Information Bulletin CRTC 2010-961, Procedures for filing confidential information and requesting its disclosure in Commission proceedings, in order for information filed with the Commission to be designated as confidential, the party submitting this information must provide an abridged version of the document along with an explanation of how the information falls into a category of information listed in section 31of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission Rules of Practice and Procedure (the Rules of Procedure). Furthermore, the party must provide a detailed rationale to explain why the disclosure of the information is not in the public interest.

  1. In light of the above, please confirm whether you intended to designate both of the above-noted documents as confidential.
  2. For each document that you intend to designate as confidential, please submit the following:
    • An abridged version;
    • An explanation of how the information falls into a category of information listed in section 31 of the Rules of Procedure; and
    • A detailed rationale to explain why the disclosure of the information is not in the public interest.

With respect to the three year financial projections provided in your application, Commission staff considers that an abridged version of these projections on an incremental basis (both if approved and denied) would be appropriate for public disclosure.

Timeline change

Commission staff notes that the intervention deadline for this application will end 11 May 2015. However, considering that this request will result in the addition of previously unavailable information on the public record, additional comments from interveners with respect to the new information only will be accepted. As such, the timetable for the proceeding is changed as follows:

Please note that the information requested herein should be received at the Commission by no later than 15 May 2015, failing which, your application may be returned to be completed and resubmitted with the Commission should you wish to pursue this proposal.

The Commission requires that your response and/or other documents be submitted electronically by using the secured service “My CRTC Account” (Partner Log In or GCKey) and filling in the “Broadcasting and Telecom Cover page” or the “Broadcasting Online Form and Cover Page” located on this web page. Also on this web page you will find information on the submission of applications to the Commission “Submitting applications and other documents to the CRTC using My CRTC Account.”
