1. Across Canada
Application No. 2008-0749-8
  Application by Teletoon Canada Inc. to amend the licence of the national specialty programming undertaking known as Teletoon.
  The licensee proposes to replace the condition of licence relating to reporting of Canadian programming expenditures which reads:
 

3(b) In the broadcast year beginning 1 September 2004 and in each subsequent broadcast year of the licence term, the licensee shall expend on the acquisition of and/or investment in Canadian programs a minimum of 47% of the gross revenues derived from the operation of this service during the previous broadcast year.

3(b) In the broadcast year beginning 1 September 2004 and in each subsequent broadcast year of the licence term, the licensee shall expend on the acquisition of and/or investment in Canadian programs, on a cash basis, a minimum of 47% of the gross revenues derived from the operation of this service during the previous broadcast year.

  The change would allow Teletoon to adjust to the payment terms now in place in animation production. This would be consistent and aligned with the practices of its shareholder, Corus, which employs that methodology for other specialty services.
  The licensee states that there would be no negative impact on Canadian programming expenditures.

2. Across Canada
Application No. 2008-1009-5
  Application by TVA Group Inc. to amend the licence of its French-language specialty television service LCN.
  The licensee requests that the Commission replace the following condition of licence:
 

"Not more than 12% of all programming broadcast during the broadcast week shall be drawn from category 2(a). All such programs must be related to headline news."

  With
 

"Not more than 19% of all programming broadcast during the broadcast week shall be drawn from category 2(a). All such programs must be related to headline news."

  The licensee states that the public is increasingly seeking to put into perspective and meaning as to what is happening in a given area. Consequently, the licensee wishes to create full-length programs on fundamental issues.
  The licensee states that the weekly measurement in effect ensures that the applicant is not seeking to package information programming as commentary programming.
  The licensee states that this application does not change the nature of its service in any way.

Application No. 2008-0958-5
  Application by 9174-8004 Québec inc. to amend the licence of the French-language commercial radio station CHEQ-FM Sainte-Marie de Beauce.
  The licensee proposes to change the frequency of station CHEQ-FM from 101.3 MHz (channel 267A) to 101.5 MHz (channel 268C).

  These changes will enable the station to provide enhanced coverage in its current service area. They will also allow the station to reach rural audiences.
  Furthermore, the changes will make the licensee more competitive with the Québec City stations received in its service area.

7. Yorkton, Saskatchewan
Application No. 2008-0961-8
  Application by 101056012 Saskatchewan Ltd. to amend the licence of the English-language specialty radio station CJJC-FM Yorkton.
  The licensee proposes to amend the licence by changing the frequency from 100.5 MHz (channel 263LP) to 98.5 MHz (channel 253B). The licensee also proposes to change the authorized contours by increasing the average effective radiated power from 44.79 to 50,000 watts (non-directional antenna/antenna height increased from 29.9 to 118 metres).
  The increase in power would result in a change of CJJC-FM's status from a low-power unprotected service to a Class B FM station.
  The licensee is seeking the power increase to ensure the station's long-term financial viability through an expansion of its potential listener and advertiser reach.

Application No. 2008-1011-0
  Application by CTV Limited (CTV) to amend the licence of the radio programming undertaking CFUN-AM Vancouver.
  The licensee proposes to move the transmitter from its current location to a new site, owned by the licensee, approximately eight kilometres south-east.
  CTV advised the Commission that the existing AM transmitter CFUN Vancouver is deteriorated to the point that the station is unable to prove its antenna pattern.
  The Commission notes that changing the transmitter site of the radio station will result in a decrease in the coverage area and consequently, in a decrease in reached population of approximately 574,000 people.
