Ottawa, 19 January 1990
Decision CRTC 90-47
Ben Chanalquay, representing a company to be incorporated
Dillon, Saskatchewan - 890945900
Following a Public Hearing in Winnipeg beginning on 5 December 1989, the Commission approves the application for a licence for a Dene- and English-language FM radio broadcasting transmitting undertaking at Dillon on the frequency 92.7 MHz, channel 224, with an effective radiated power of 7.8 watts. This undertaking will rebroadcast the programs of CKRW Whitehorse, received via satellite, and will broadcast 40 hours per week of locally-originated programming in English (50%) and Dene (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.
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.
Further, should the incorporated company 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.
The Department of Communications (DOC) has advised the Commission that this proposal is technically acceptable, but that issuance of a Broadcasting Certificate is conditional on the resolution of any problems involving interference with aeronautical NAV/COM services.
In accordance with paragraph 13(1)(b) of the Broadcasting Act, the Commission will only issue the licence, and the authority granted herein may only be implemented, at such time as written notification is received from the DOC that it will issue a Broadcasting Certificate.
It is a condition of licence that the authority granted herein be implemented within twelve 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 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.
