Ottawa, 15 August 1994
Decision CRTC 94-620
Norway House Communications Inc.
Norway House, Manitoba - 940057300
Acquisition of assets
Following a Public Hearing in Saskatoon beginning on 6 June 1994, the Commission approves the application for authority to acquire the assets of the radio programming undertaking CJNC Norway House from Native Communication Inc., and for a broadcasting licence to continue the operation of this undertaking.
The Commission will issue a licence to Norway House Communications Inc., expiring 31 August 1999, upon surrender of the current licence. This term will enable the Commission to consider the renewal of this licence at the same time as that of other native radio stations across Canada.
The Commission notes that this station is a Type A native radio station in accordance with Public Notice CRTC 1990-89 dated 20 September 1990 entitled "Native Broadcasting Policy".
The licence will be subject to the same conditions as those in effect under the current licence, as well as to any other condition specified in this decision and in the licence to be issued.
In approving this application, the Commission has taken into account the fact that no monies will be exchanged in this transaction and that approval of this application is in the public interest to ensure continued radio service in Norway House.
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 adhere to the guidelines on gender portrayal set out in the Canadian Association of Broadcasters' (CAB) "Sex-Role Portrayal Code for Television and Radio Programming", as amended from time to time and approved by the Commission.
It is also a condition of licence that the applicant adhere to the provisions of the CAB's "Broadcast Code for Advertising to Children", as amended from time to time and approved by the Commission.
The Commission acknowledges the intervention submitted to this application by the Norway House Community Council and the Mayor of Norway House, and is of the view that this intervention raises serious allegations upon which the Commission is not competent to adjudicate.
Allan J. Darling
Secretary General
