Following a Public Hearing in Toronto, on 23 September 1986, the Commission approves the application for a broadcasting licence for an English-language FM radio station at Geraldton on the frequency of 89.1 MHz, channel 206, with an effective radiated power of 11,900 watts to rebroadcast the CBC English-language AM network programming provided by CBQ Thunder Bay.
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 CBQ.
The Commission notes that the use of this FM frequency conforms with the guidelines set out in Public Notices CRTC 1985-86 and 1985-142 dated 2 May and 9 July 1985 respectively.
The CBC has indicated that it intends to cease the operation of CBLG Geraldton, CBLL Longlac and CBLN Nakina, low-power AM stations which rebroadcast the programs of CBQ Thunder Bay, no later than one year following the date on which the new FM transmitter becomes operational. The Commission expects the CBC to cease operation of CBLG, CBLL and CBLN within this time frame.
The Commission is satisfied that the replacement of these low-power unprotected AM stations with the proposed FM facilities will result in an extension of the CBC AM network service to a significantly greater population in this area.
