Ottawa, 25 April 1989
Decision CRTC 89-192
Tom Iron, representing a company to be incorporated
Canoe Lake, Saskatchewan - 882089600
Following a Public Hearing in Saskatoon on 20 February 1989, the Commission approves the application for a licence for a native- and English-language FM radio broadcasting transmitting undertaking at Canoe Lake, on the 103.9 MHz frequency, channel 280, with an effective radiated power of 10 watts, to broadcast locally-produced programs. The Commission will issue a licence expiring 31 August 1993, subject to the conditions specified in this decision and in the licence to be issued.
This authority will only be effective and the licence will only be issued at such time as the Commission receives documentation establishing that the company has been incorporated in accordance with the application in all material respects.
The Commission notes the applicant's commitment to broadcast eight hours of locally-produced programming daily.
The applicant had proposed to use the 89.9 MHz frequency. However, the Department of Communications (DOC) advised the Commission that the 89.9 MHz frequency would cause interference to existing radio services and that it would issue a Technical Construction and Operating Certificate for the 103.9 MHz frequency. Accordingly, the Commission authorizes the applicant to use the 103.9 MHz frequency.
It is a condition of licence that the applicant adhere to the CAB's self-regulatory guidelines on sex-role stereotyping, as amended from time to time and approved by the Commission.
The Commission also authorizes the applicant to make use of the Subsidiary Communications Multiplex Operation. The Commission expects the applicant to adhere to the guidelines set out in Appendix A to Public Notice CRTC 1989-23 dated 23 March 1989 entitled "Services Using the Vertical Blanking Interval (Television) or Subsidiary Communications Multiplex Operation (FM)".
It is also a condition of licence that construction of this undertaking be completed and that it be in operation within twelve months of the date of this decision or, where the applicant applies to the Commission within this period and satisfies the Commission that it cannot complete implementation 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 Commission.
