  Applications by Aboriginal Voices Radio Inc. (AVR) to renew the licences of the Native Type B radio programming undertakings CKAV-FM Toronto, CKAV-FM-2 Vancouver, and its transmitters at Abbotsford, CKAV-FM-3 Calgary and CKAV-FM-9 Ottawawhich areexpiring on 31 March 2007.
  It appears to the Commission that the licensee may have failed to comply with the Radio Regulations, 1986 concerning the provision of complete logger tapes in the case of its undertaking CKAV-FM Toronto. It also appears that the licensee may have failed to comply with its condition of licence that it "ensure that a minimum of 25% of all programming broadcast each broadcast week is spoken word programming".
  Programming concerns:

The Commission notes the licensee's preference to, rather than accept a condition of licence stipulating a specific minimum of Aboriginal-language spoken word programming, to instead focus on raising awareness of the goals of the Aboriginal Languages Initiative and to encourage participation by Aboriginal people in all regions of the country. Moreover, the Commission notes AVR's increased preference to focus on national network programming rather than its original local programming commitments.
  AVR's current proposals appear to represent a significant departure from its originally proposed mandate. The Commission authorized these services based, in part, on the expectation that AVR would provide local programming and Aboriginal language programming to these markets.
