  PREAMBLE
  Items 1 to 13
  On 13 March 2008, the Commission issued Broadcasting Public Notices CRTC 2008-21 and CRTC 2008-22, calling for applications for broadcasting licences to carry on radio programming undertakings to serve London and Guelph, Ontario.
  In response to these calls, the Commission has received a number of applications for licences to serve these markets.
Some of these applications are technically mutually exclusive. These applications are:
 

For London

 

Items 2 to 5 and 8 are technically mutually exclusive proposing the use of the frequency 98.1 MHz.

 

Items 6 and 7 are technically mutually exclusive proposing the use of the frequency 91.1 MHz.

 

These applications, along with item 1 will be treated as competitive radio applications for London.

 

For item 9, given the proximity of St. Thomas to London, this application will also be considered as part of the competitive phase of the hearing where the Commission will consider the London new radio applications.

 

For Guelph

 

Items 10, 11 and 13 are technically mutually exclusive proposing the use of the frequency 101.5 MHz.

 

These applications, along with item 12 will be treated as competitive radio applications for Guelph.

Application No. 2008-0858-7
  Application by Rogers Broadcasting Limited (Rogers) (2008-0856-1) seeking authority to acquire the assets of the radio programming undertaking CFDR Dartmouth, Nova Scotia from Newcap Inc., and for the issuance of a new licence.
  Application by Newcap Inc. (Newcap) (2008-0858-7) seeking authority to acquire the assets of the radio programming undertaking CIGM Sudbury, Ontario from Rogers, and for the issuance of a new licence.
  The two applications were filed in the context of a proposed exchange of radio assets between Rogers and Newcap pursuant to a Letter of Intent.
  Pursuant to the Letter of Intent, Rogers would purchase the assets of CFDR Dartmouth for $7 million and Newcap would purchase the assets of CIGM Sudbury for $2 million.
  Pursuant to the Commercial Radio Policy 2006 (Public Notice CRTC 2006-158, 15 December 2006), Rogers proposes tangible benefits of $420,000 for the Dartmouth station (CFDR) over a seven-year period, representing 6% of the $7 million. Similarly, Newcap will contribute a total of $120,000 for the Sudbury station (CIGM) over a seven-year period, representing 6% of the $2 million.
  Both Rogers and Newcap are also requesting a licence to continue the operation of the undertaking they are acquiring under the same terms and conditions as those in effect under the current respective licence, upon surrender of the licences of CFDR currently issued to Newcap and CIGM currently issued to Rogers.
  Rogers and Newcap also filed, under separate cover, applications to respectively convert CFDR Dartmouth (2008-0855-3) and CIGM Sudbury (2008-0857-9) from the AM band to the FM band.
  The applicants indicated that, although the conversion applications are severable from the ownership transactions, a denial could impact the negotiated terms of the Letter of Intent.
  Additional information will be placed on the public examination file as it becomes available. The Commission encourages interested parties to monitor the public examination file and the Commission's web site for additional information that they may find useful when preparing their comments.

Application No. 2008-0833-9
  Application by Sogetel inc. for a broadcasting licence to operate a Class 1 terrestrial broadcasting distribution undertaking to serve Saint-Paulin.
The applicant also requests the following conditions of licence:
 

a) The licensee is authorized to distribute, at its option, as part of the basic service, the signals of WCAX-TV (CBS) Burlington, WPTZ (NBC) Plattsburgh, WVNY (ABC), WFFF TV (FOX) Burlington and WCFE (PBS) Plattsburgh, or alternatively for each signal, the signal of another affiliate of the same network located in the same time zone, indicated on the appropriate list of eligible satellite services.

 

b) The licensee is authorized to distribute, on a digital discretionary basis, the following signals:

 

·1 any of the distant Canadian television signals set out in the List of Part 3 eligible satellite services; and

 

·2 a second set of signals that provides the programming of the large U.S. commercial networks (CBS, NBC, ABC, FOX) and the non-commercial PBS network (hereafter referred to as the U.S. 4+1 signals).

  The distribution on a discretionary basis on the licensee's digital service of a second set of U.S. 4+1 signals is subject to the provision that, with respect to such signals, the licensee adhere to the requirements regarding non-simultaneous program deletion set out in section 43 of the Broadcasting Distribution Regulations. The Commission may suspend the application of this provision, with respect to the signals to be distributed, upon its approval of an executed agreement between the licensee and broadcasters. Such an agreement must deal with issues related to the protection of program rights arising in connection with the discretionary carriage of a second set of U.S. 4+1 signals and distant Canadian signals solely on the licensee's digital service.
 

c) The licensee may, at its option, insert certain promotional material as a substitute for the "local availabilities" (i.e., non-Canadian advertising material) of non-Canadian satellite services. At least 75% of these local availabilities must be made available for use by licensed Canadian programming services for the promotion of their respective services, for the promotion of the community channel and for unpaid Canadian public service announcements. A maximum of 25% of the local availabilities may be used to provide subscribers with information regarding customer service and channel realignments, and for the promotion of discretionary programming services and packages, cable FM service, additional cable outlets and non-programming services, including Internet and telephone services.

Application No. 2008-0566-6
  Application by Jim Pattison Broadcast Group Ltd. (the general partner) and Jim Pattison Industries Ltd. (the limited partner), carrying on business as Jim Pattison Broadcast Group Limited Partnership (collectively the Pattison Group) (Pattison), to acquire the assets of the radio programming undertaking CIGV-FM Penticton and its related transmitters CIGV-FM-1 Keremeos and CIGV-FM-2 Princeton, British Columbia from Great Valleys Radio Ltd., a corporation controlled by Ralph and Jean Robinson.
  The applicant is also requesting a licence to continue the operation of the undertakings under the same terms and conditions as those in effect under the current licence.
  The value of the transaction, based on the purchase and sales agreement, is $3 million. Pursuant to the Commercial Radio Policy 2006 (Public Notice CRTC 2006-158, 15 December 2006), the applicant proposed to spend $180,000 in tangible benefits (representing 6% of the value of the transaction).
  In Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2007-116, 23 April 2007, the Commission approved an application by the Pattison Group for a conversion to the FM band of CKOV in the Kelowna market where the Pattison Group already owns and controls CKLZ-FM.
  According to the Commission's Common Ownership Policy (the Policy), in markets with less than eight commercial stations operating in a given language, a person may be permitted to own or control as many as three stations operating in that language, with a maximum of two stations in any one frequency band.
  The addition of CIGV-FM Penticton would thereupon provide the Pattison Group with a third FM presence in the Kelowna market and would require an exception to the Policy.
  To eliminate the need for an exception to the Policy in the Kelowna market, Pattison has requested an amendment to the technical parameters under which CIGV-FM currently operates by decreasing the average effective radiated power from 6,300 watts (maximum effective radiated power of 14,000 watts) to an average effective radiated power of 3,100 watts.
