Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2004-89

  Ottawa, 24 November 2004
 

Ownership applications granted approval

  In this notice, the Commission publishes a list of transfers of ownership and changes to the effective control of broadcasting undertakings that it has authorized during the period 1 September 2004 to 31 October 2004 pursuant to its streamlined procedure, and the details regarding these transactions.

1.

The Commission has a streamlined procedure for its consideration of applications involving transfers of ownership and changes in the effective control of broadcasting undertakings. Under this procedure, and on a case-by-case basis, the Commission may approve such an ownership application without first having issued a public notice provided that:
 

a) its examination of the application reveals the presence of no significant policy concern; and

 

b) the Commission is convinced that approval would be consistent with its approvals of previous applications.

2.

Where these two conditions are met, the Commission is generally satisfied that a process initiated by a public notice is not required in the public interest, and would unnecessarily delay implementation of the transaction contemplated by the applicant.

3.

In the appendix to this public notice, the Commission publishes a list of transfers of ownership and changes to the effective control of broadcasting undertakings that it has authorized during the period 1 September 2004 to 31 October 2004 pursuant to its streamlined procedure, and the details regarding these transactions.
