Following a Public Hearing in Winnipeg on 12 October 1988, the Commission approves the application for a licence for an English-language AM radio broadcasting transmitting undertaking at Athabasca on the frequency 850 kHz, with a transmitter power of 1,000 watts to broadcast locally-produced programs as well as to rebroadcast programming originated by CFOK Westlock, Alberta.
The Commission will issue a licence expiring 31 August 1991, subject to the conditions specified in this decision and 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 other radio stations in the area.
The Commission notes that the applicant will produce 24 hours of local programming each week, including 2 hours 18 minutes of local news. The remaining programming will be provided by CFOK.
The Commission acknowledges the interventions received from Mr. Jack Shields, MP for Athabasca, and Mr. Léo Piquette, MLA Athabasca-Lac La Biche, in support of the application.
It is a condition of licence that the authority granted herein be implemented within twelve months of the date of this decision or, where the applicant applies to the Commission and satisfies the Commission that it cannot implement its authority before the expiry of this twelve-month period and that an extension of this period is in the public interest, within such further period of time as is approved in writing by the Commis-sion.
