Ottawa, 23 September 1992
Decision CRTC 92-713
Native Communication Inc.
God's Lake Narrows, God's River, Nelson House, Pukatawagan and Wabowden, Manitoba - 920126000 - 920127800 - 920128600 - 920129400 - 920130200
Following a Public Hearing in the National Capital Region held on 14 July 1992, the Commission approves the applications for broadcasting licences for English- and Native- language FM radio programming undertakings at each of the above-noted locations on the frequency 93.5 MHz (channel 228) at God's Lake Narrows, and 96.9 MHz (channel 245) at the other locations, each with an effective radiated power of 8.7 watts.
Pursuant to Public Notice CRTC 1990-89 dated 20 September 1990 entitled Native Broadcasting Policy, the Commission will issue licences for Type A FM native radio undertakings. These licences will expire on 31 August 1998, and will be subject to the conditions specified in this decision and in the licences to be issued.
The Commission notes that these undertakings will broadcast 70 hours of programming per week, consisting of 14 hours of local programming and 56 hours received from the Native Communication Inc. network, originating from Thompson, Manitoba. The programming of each undertaking will be in both the Cree and English languages. The Department of Communications (DOC) has advised the Commission that these applications are conditionally technically acceptable, and that Broadcasting Certificates will only be issued once it has been determined that the proposed technical parameters of each transmitter 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 licences, and the authorities 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 Broadcasting Certificates will be issued.
It is a condition of each licence that construction of these undertakings be completed and that they be in operation within twelve 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.
