Following a Public Hearing in Vancouver beginning on 12 February 1991, the Commission approves the application for a licence for an English-language FM radio broadcasting transmitting undertaking at Luscar on the frequency 90.1 MHz, channel 211, with an effective radiated power of 20 watts to rebroadcast the programs of CISN-FM Edmonton.
The Commission will issue a licence expiring 31 August 1995, subject to the conditions specified in this decision and in the licence to be issued.
The Commission notes that Luscar is an isolated mining site located approximately 260 kilometers southwest of Edmonton, near the community of Hinton. The applicant will provide the proposed FM radio service 24 hours per day to the 600 employees at the mine site which is operated by Cardinal River Coals Ltd.
The Department of Communications (DOC) has advised the Commission that this application is conditionally technically acceptable, and that a Broadcasting Certificate will only be issued once it has been determined that the undertaking's proposed technical parameters will not create any unacceptable 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 its technical requirements have been met, and that a Broadcasting Certificate will be issued.
It is a condition of licence that construction of this undertaking be completed and that it be in operation within six months of the date of receipt of the DOC notification referred to in the preceding paragraph 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.
