Ottawa, 11 June 1991
Decision CRTC 91-369
Christian Martel, on behalf of a company to be incorporated
Toronto, Ontario - 910314400
Following a Public Hearing held in the National Capital Region on 28 May 1991, the Commission approves the application for a special FM licence for a French-language community radio programming undertaking (Type A) at Toronto, on a frequency of 99.1 MHz, channel 256, with an effective radiated power of 31 watts, to broadcast programs during "La Semaine française à Toronto", from 16 to 23 June 1991.
The Commission will issue a licence, the term of which will be 16 to 23 June 1991, subject to the conditions specified in this decision and in the licence to be issued.
The Department of Communications (DOC) has advised that the undertaking will operate with an effective radiated power of 31 watts rather than 30 watts, as had been indicated in CRTC Notice of Public Hearing 1991-5 dated 27 March 1991.
It is a condition of licence that the applicant devote not more than 20% of the station's total broadcasting time to advertising, in accordance with the community radio policy for Type A stations. 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 aspects.
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 subsection 22(1) 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.
The Commission notes the eight written interventions submitted in support of this application.
Allan J. Darling
Secretary General
