Following a Public Hearing in Hull, Quebec on 19 November 1985, the Commission approves the application for a broadcasting licence for an FM radio station at Bonnyville on the frequency 98.7 MHz, channel 254B, with an effective radiated power of 50,000 watts to rebroadcast the French-language programming originating from CHFA Edmonton.
The Commission will issue a licence expiring 30 September 1987, subject to the conditions specified in the licence to be issued. This term will enable the Commission to consider the renewal of this licence at the same time as that of CHFA Edmonton.
The Commission notes that this new FM station conforms to the guidelines concerning the use of FM channels for the extension of the CBC's basic AM service, set out in Public Notice CRTC 1985-86 dated 2 May 1985 on the "Review of CBC Long Range Radio Plan".
The Commission acknowledges the intervention received from the Association canadienne française de l'Alberta in support of this application.
