- The Commission approves an application from TekSavvy Solutions Inc. (TekSavvy), acting as the Canadian sponsor, to add WJBK-TV Detroit, Michigan, a non-Canadian television station, to the List of non-Canadian programming services and stations authorized for distribution (the list). The Commission did not receive any interventions regarding this application. The revised list can be found on the Commission’s website at www.crtc.gc.ca and may be obtained in hard copy on request.

- The Commission assesses applications for the addition of non-Canadian television stations on a case-by-case basis, and considers whether the addition would contribute to the achievement of the policy objectives set out in section 3(1) of the Broadcasting Act, namely, to serve the public interest of Canadians and contribute to the provision of programming drawn from local, regional, national and international sources.
