Following a Public Hearing in Fredericton beginning on 7 December 1993, the Commission approves the application for a broadcasting licence for an English- and Native- language FM radio programming undertaking at Eskasoni Indian Reserve, on the frequency 94.1 MHz, with an effective radiated power of 1 watt.
Pursuant to Public Notice CRTC 1990-89 dated 20 September 1990 entitled "Native Broadcasting
Policy", the Commission will issue a licence for a Type B FM native radio undertaking. This licence will expire on 31 August 1999, and will be 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 native radio undertakings.
The Commission notes that the undertaking will broadcast 35 hours of locally-produced programming in the Micmac (65%) and English (35%) languages.
The applicant is reminded of the requirements for Canadian musical selections set out in the Radio Regulations, 1986. It is a condition of licence that the applicant broadcast no more than an average of 4 minutes of advertising per hour per day, with a maximum of 6 minutes in any given hour, in accordance with the native radio policy for Type B stations.
It is also a condition of licence that the applicant adhere to the provisions of the Canadian
Association Broadcasters' "Broadcast Code for Advertising to Children", as amended from time to time and approved by the Commission.
The Department of Communications (DOC) has advised the Commission that this application is condi- tionally technically acceptable, and that a Broadcasting Certificate will only be issued once it has been determined that the proposed tech-nical 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.
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 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.
