Ottawa, 16 January 1990
Decision CRTC 90-30
Pinehouse Communications Society
Pinehouse Lake, Saskatchewan - 890888100
Following a Public Hearing in Winnipeg beginning on 5 December 1989, the Commission approves the application for a licence for a Cree and English-language FM radio broadcasting transmitting undertaking at Pinehouse Lake on the frequency 89.9 MHz, channel 210, with an effective radiated power of 7 watts. This undertaking will rebroadcast the programs of CKRW Whitehorse, received via satellite, and will broadcast 20 hours per week of locally-originated programming in Cree (50%) and English (50%) languages.
The Commission will issue a licence expiring 31 August 1994, subject to the conditions specified in this decision and in the licence to be issued.
In view of the fact that this non- profit corporation will be supported in part by government loans or grants, the applicant is reminded that it should ensure that it retains full control over all management and programming decisions at all times.
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 period and that an extension is in the public interest, within such further period of time as is approved in writing by the Commission.

Secretary General
