Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2006-152

  Ottawa, 22 November 2006
 

Applications granted approval pursuant to streamlined procedures

  In this public notice, the Commission publishes a list of applications involving transfers of ownership and changes in the effective control of broadcasting undertakings as well as applications for amendments or extensions of deadlines not requiring a public process that it has approved during the period 1 September 2006 to 31 October 2006 pursuant to its streamlined procedure.

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 as well as applications for amendments or extensions of deadlines not requiring a public process. Under this procedure, and on a case-by-case basis, the Commission may approve such an 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 or of other proposals by the applicant.

3.

In the appendices to this public notice, the Commission publishes a list of applications involving transfers of ownership and changes in the effective control of broadcasting undertakings (Appendix 1) as well as applications for amendments or extensions of deadlines not requiring a public process (Appendix 2) that it has approved during the period 1 September 2006 to 31 October 2006 pursuant to its streamlined procedure.
