Across Canada
Application No. 2007-0005-6
  Application by Shaw Communications Inc. (Shaw), on behalf of Videon Cablesystems Inc., to amend the broadcasting licence of the national English and French language video-on-demand programming undertaking known as Shaw On Demand.
  Shaw requests the addition of certain conditions of licence authorizing it to distribute programming that contains commercial messages where those messages are already included in a program previously broadcast in Canada by a Canadian programming undertaking or by a non-Canadian service on the lists of eligible satellite services (the eligible lists). It further seeks to permit Shaw to charge a fee to subscribers for such programming.
  Shaw proposes that the condition of licence pertaining to adherence to the Pay Television Regulations, 1990 be amended as follows:
 

The licensee shall adhere to the Pay Television Regulations, 1990, with the exception of section 3(2)(d) (commercial messages) and section 4 (logs and records).

  Shaw also proposes to add the following condition of licence:
 

The licensee shall not include as part of its video-on-demand offering any program containing a commercial message except where:

 

a) the message was already included in a program previously broadcast in Canada by a Canadian programming service or a non-Canadian service on the lists of eligible satellite services; and

 

b) the program's inclusion as part of the video-on-demand offering is in accordance with the terms of a written agreement entered into with the operator of the programming service that broadcast the program.

  Shaw states it wishes to obtain maximum flexibility to develop its on-demand service thereby increasing the variety of programming offered to its consumers.

Témiscaming and Ville-Marie, Quebec
Application No. 2007-0110-4
  Application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to amend the licence of the radio programming undertaking CHLM-FM Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec.
  The licensee proposes to add the FM transmitters CBFZ-FM Témiscaming and CBFY-FM Ville-Marie to broadcast its programming service La Première chaîne originating from CHLM-FM Rouyn-Noranda.
  These two FM transmitters were originally licensed to the CBC as a radiocommunication distribution undertaking (RDU) to broadcast the programming of the radio station CHLM-FM Rouyn-Noranda which was licensed to Radio Nord Communications inc.
  In Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2004-399, dated 1 September 2004, the Commission approved the application by the CBC to acquire the assets of CHLM-FM. The CBC therefore became the licensee of this station.
  Given that the CBC is now the licensee of CHLM-FM, it no longer needs to hold a separate RDU licence for the two above-noted FM transmitters.
  Should this application be approved by the Commission, these transmitters would be added to the licence of CHLM-FM and the above-noted RDU licence would be revoked.

  The authorized contours of the station will be increased significantly as a result of the proposed increase in power.
