Following a Public Hearing in Hull, Quebec on 30 April 1985, the Commission renews the broadcasting licence for the multi-channel transmitting undertaking and for the television community station (CIER-TV) serving Ear Falls from 1 October 1985 to 30 September 1990, subject to the conditions of licence specified in the licences to be issued.
The licensee is authorized to continue to distribute the signals of the following stations, received via satellite from the Canadian Satellite Communications Inc. (CANCOM) network:
CHAN-TV Vancouver 9 10
CHCH-TV Hamilton 11 10
CITV-TV Edmonton 10 10
TCTV Montréal 5 10
The television community station (CIER-TV) will continue to operate on channel 2 with a transmitter power of 10 watts. This station broadcasts approximately 2 hours per week of locally-produced programs, including local events, council and community updates, recreational activities, interviews with local historians, and tournaments.
Approval for the continued carriage of the signal of CHAN-TV Vancouver, received via CANCOM, is subject to the requirement that the licensee delete the CTV network programming and other programming obtained from CTV and broadcast by the local affiliate CJBN-TV-6 Ear Falls, at such time as this station is on the air.
The Commission reminds the licensee that the channels noted above are unprotected channels. Accordingly, the licensee would have to select other channels for the operation of these stations, should optimum utilization of the broadcasting spectrum so require.
