Ottawa, 13 September 1990
Decision CRTC 90-893
Canadian Broadcasting Corporation
Rivière-au-Renard, Quebec- 900304700
Following a Public Hearing in the National Capital Region beginning on 11 June 1990, the Commission approves the application for a licence for a French-language FM radio broadcasting transmitting undertaking at Rivière-au-Renard on the frequency 92.5 MHz, channel 223, with an effective radiated power of 40.9 watts to rebroadcast the programs of CBGA-10-FM Gaspé.
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 term will enable the Commission to consider the renewal of this licence at the same time as that of other CBC stations in the area.
The Department of Communications (DOC) has advised that the undertaking will use the frequency 92.5 MHz rather than the 91.5 MHz indicated in CRTC Notice of Public Hearing 1990-7 dated 12 April 1990.
The CBC has indicated that it intends to cease the operation of CBGA-3 Rivière-au-Renard, which currently rebroadcasts the programs of CBGA Matane, within twelve months of the date on which the new transmitter becomes operational. The Commission expects the CBC to cease the operation of CBGA-3 within this time frame and to inform listeners of the changes herein approved.
It is 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 period and that an extension is in the public interest, within such further period of time as is approved in writing by the Commission.
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 the applicant, the DOC and Transport Canada have satisfactorily resolved the NAV/COM problem, and at such time as the DOC has confirmed in writing that it will issue a Broadcasting Certificate.
