Katinniq (Raglan Mine) and Kilometre 38, Quebec

Application 2001-0708-8
Public Hearing in the National Capital Region
14 January 2002

Acquisition of the assets of the radiocommunication distribution undertaking serving Katinniq (Raglan Mine)

1.

The Commission approves the application by the Superintendent of Technical and Surface Services of Raglan Quebec Mines Ltd., Mr. Jacques A. Saint-Pierre and his successors, for authority to acquire the assets of the radiocommunication distribution undertaking serving Katinniq (Raglan Mine)from Maryann Van Walleghem, and for a broadcasting licence to continue the operation of this undertaking.

2.

The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.

3.

The Commission will issue a licence to the applicant, expiring 31 August 2006, upon surrender of the current licence. The licence will be subject to the conditions specified in the licence to be issued.

4.

The Commission also approves the applicant's proposal to decrease the effective radiated power from 150 watts to 106 watts of the transmitter VF2348 Katinniq, which distributes the programs of CITE-FM Montréal.

5.

The Commission further approves the applicant's proposals to:

  • add a transmitter at Katinniq to distribute, in non-encrypted mode, the programming service of CFFB (CBC) Iqaluit, Nunavut, which will operate on frequency 93.5 MHz (channel 228A1) with an effective radiated power of 106 watts; and
  •  add a transmitter at Kilometre 38 to distribute, in non-encrypted mode, the programming of CITE-FM Montréal, Quebec which will operate on frequency 98.5 MHz (channel 253A1) with an effective radiated power of 150 watts.

6.

The applicant considers that the additional transmitter at Kilometre 38 will benefit the mine workers travelling the road between Katinniq and Deception Bay.

7.

The Department of Industry has advised the Commission that, while this application is conditionally technically acceptable, it will only issue a broadcasting certificate once it has determined that the proposed technical parameters will not create any unacceptable interference with aeronautical NAV/COM services.

8.

In accordance with section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, the Commission will only issue the licence when it receives notification from the Department of Industry that its technical requirements have been met, and that a broadcasting certificate will be issued.
