Notice of application received

Withdrawal of the application

Further to Broadcasting Notice of Consultation 2018-95, the Commission announces the following:

The applicant has requested that the application be returned. Consequently, the composition of Bell Media Inc.’s group in the French-language market will not be modified. As such, the examination of the group’s requirements for Canadian programming expenditures and programs of national interest with respect to its French-language services will not form part of the issues considered as part of the proceeding for Broadcasting Notice of Consultation 2017-428 on the reconsideration of certain aspects of the licence renewal decisions of the large French-language ownership groups’ television services. The Commission has therefore closed the file on the application noted below:

Bell Media Inc., on behalf of Corus Entertainment Inc.
