In Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2013-46, the Commission again granted you permission to operate a rebroadcasting transmitter in Saint-Fabien-de-Panet. Commission staff notes that following this decision, the Commission granted you two extensions to commence operation of this same transmitter. The Commission gave you until February 6, 2017, to begin operating the new transmitter.
