The Ontario Educational Communications Authority (TVOntario)
Brethour, Ontario - 891841900
Following a Public Hearing in London beginning on 20 February 1990, the Commission approves the application for a licence to carry on a broadcasting transmitting undertaking consisting of three low-power television channels to serve Brethour. This undertaking will distribute the programs of CICA-TV Toronto, the French-language educational programming service operated by TVOntario ("La Chaîne française") and the Ontario Provincial Legislative Assembly, received via satellite.
The Commission will issue a licence to The Ontario Educational Communications Authority (TVOntario), expiring 31 August 1992, to carry on a multi-channel broadcasting transmitting undertaking, 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 CICA-TV.
In accordance with paragraph 13(1)(b) of the Broadcasting Act, the Commission will issue a licence to the applicant if it is in receipt of written notification from the Department of Communications (DOC) within six months of the date of this decision that it will issue a Broadcasting Certificate. No licence will be issued if the Commission does not receive this notification within said period or, where the applicant applies to the Commission and satisfies the Commission that it is unable to obtain said notification before the expiry of this six-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.
It is a condition of licence that construction of the undertaking be completed and that it be in operation within six months of the date of receipt of written notification from the DOC that it will issue a Broadcasting Certificate or, where the applicant applies to the Commission within this period and satisfies the Commission that it cannot complete the implementation before the expiry of this period and that an extension is in the public interest, within such further period of time as is approved in writing by the Commission.
