Licences for special events
1. Following a Public Hearing in Toronto beginning on 14 April 1997, the Commission approves the applications for broadcasting licences for French-language FM community radio programming undertakings at North Bay and Sturgeon Falls, on the frequency 93.5 MHz (channel 228LP), each with an effective radiated power of 50 watts.
2. These undertakings will broadcast programming relating to activities which will take place during Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day and Halloween, and will serve to promote the establishment of a French-language community radio in the area.
3. Consistent with Public Notice CRTC 1992-38 dated 29 May 1992 entitled Policies for Community and Campus Radio and subject to the requirements of this decision, the Commission will issue licences for Type A community radio stations. These licences will be subject to the conditions specified in the licences to be issued and will be in effect only for the duration specified below:
Sturgeon Falls: 21 and 22 June 1997
North Bay: 25 and 26 October 1997.
4. The Department of Industry has advised the Commission that these applications are conditionally technically acceptable, and that a Broadcasting Certificate will only be issued once it has been determined that the proposed technical parameters will not create any unacceptable interference with aeronautical NAV/COM services.
5. In accordance with subsection 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, the Commission will only issue the licences, and the authority will only be granted, at such time as written notification is received from the Department of Industry that its technical requirements have been met, and that Broadcasting Certificates will be issued.
This decision is to be appended to each licence.
