  Items 5 and 6
  This involves the applications to renew the broadcasting licences for the French-language commercial radio programming undertakings CIHO-FM Saint-Hilarion, Quebec and its transmitters and CKOD-FM Valleyfield, Quebec, that have been found to be operating in apparent non-compliance with the Radio Regulations, 1986.
  Items 7 to 16
  The Commission will examine the applications to renew the broadcasting licences for commercial radio programming undertakings owned by 591991 B.C. Ltd. and Metromedia CMR Broadcasting Inc., expiring 31 August 2009. Both of these licensees are indirectly owned and controlled by Corus Entertainment Inc.

Saint-Hilarion, Quebec
Application No. 2009-0035-9
  Application by Radio MF Charlevoix inc. to renew the broadcasting licence for the French-language commercial radio programming undertaking CIHO-FM Saint-Hilarion and its transmitters CIHO-FM-2 La Malbaie, CIHO-FM-3 Baie-Saint-Paul, CIHO-FM-4 Petite-Rivière-Saint-François and CIHO-FM-5 Saint-Siméon. The licence expires 31 August 2009.
  It appears to the Commission that the licensee may have failed to comply with section 2.2(5) of the Radio Regulations, 1986 (the Regulations) concerning the broadcast of French-language vocal music during the broadcast week of 15 to 21 June 2008.
  It further appears to the Commission that, in the same broadcast week, the licensee may have also failed to comply with its condition of licence which requires it to devote, in each broadcast week, at least 5% of its musical selections to content category 3 (Special Interest Music) musical selections.
  This station has been monitored by Commission staff. A copy of the monitoring report has been placed on the licensee's public examination file and can be obtained by contacting the Commission documentation centres.
  The Commission intends to inquire into these matters at the hearing.

Valleyfield, Quebec
Application No. 2009-0124-0
  Application by Radio Express inc. to renew the broadcasting licence for the French-language commercial radio programming undertaking CKOD-FM Valleyfield. The licence expires 31 August 2009.
  During the current licence term, it appears to the Commission that the licensee may have failed to comply with section 8(6) of the Radio Regulations, 1986 (the Regulations) concerning the provision of logger tapes for the broadcast week of 8 to 14 June 2008.
  It also appears to the Commission that the licensee may have failed to comply with section 9(2) of the Regulations which pertains to the submission of annual reports. More specifically, the Commission notes that the licensee did submit its annual report for the broadcast year ending 31 August 2008 by the deadline date of 30 November 2008. However, the annual report submitted was incomplete.
  In this respect, the licensee appears to be in contravention of Broadcasting Mandatory Order 2007-7, which is attached to Broadcasting Decision 2007-159, by which CKOD-FM's licence was renewed from 1 June 2007 to 31 August 2009.
  The Commission intends to inquire into these matters at the hearing. The Commission expects the licensee to show cause at this hearing why a mandatory order under section 12 of the Broadcasting Act, requiring the licensee to comply with the Regulations relating to the submission of logger tapes and to the submission of annual reports, should not be issued.
  The licensee will be given an opportunity to demonstrate at this hearing why the Commission should not:
 
  • suspend, or
 
  • refuse to renew the licence.
  This station has been monitored by Commission staff. A copy of the monitoring report has been placed on the licensee's public examination file and can be obtained by contacting the Commission documentation centres.

Application No. 2008-0958-5
  Application by 9174-8004 Québec inc. to amend the broadcasting licence for the French-language commercial radio programming undertaking CHEQ-FM Sainte-Marie de Beauce.
  The licensee proposes to change the frequency from 101.3 MHz (channel 267A) to 101.5 MHz (channel 268C). It also requests to increase the average effective radiated power from 4,677 to 26,000 watts (maximum effective radiated power from 4,677 to 100,000 watts with an effective height of the antenna above average terrain from 56.3 to 98 metres). This amendment would result in a significant increase in the station's service area.
  The licensee specifies that these changes will enable it to improve the signal of its CHEQ-FM station while maintaining the use of its transmission site.
  Furthermore, it states that the changes will make it more competitive with the Québec stations received in its service area.
  The Commission notes that the 3 mV/m contour will slightly enter the Québec market.

Quebec, Quebec
Application No. 2008-1404-7
  Application by Sortir FM inc. (previously known as La Radio touristique de Québec inc.) to amend the broadcasting licence for the tourist radio programming undertaking CKJF-FM Québec.
  The licensee proposes to amend the licence by changing the frequency from 90.3 MHz (channel 212LP) to 106.9 MHz (channel 295A1). The licensee also proposes to increase the maximum effective radiated power from 16 to 100 watts.
  The licensee wishes to ensure the continuity of its service given the Commission's decision to authorize Guy Simard, on behalf of a corporation to be incorporated, to use the frequency 90.3 MHz in Montmagny (Broadcasting Decision 2008-224).
  The Commission notes that the technical parameters proposed by the applicant, in conjunction with those proposed in the application presented by Michel Cloutier, on behalf of a company to be incorporated (see item 3) could result in dual-third adjacent frequencies interference issues with the existing radio station CBV-FM owned by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
  This application was gazetted on 19 December 2008 in Broadcasting Public Notice 2008-120. The intervention period closed on 23 January 2009, and no interventions were received in connection with this application.
  The Commission will only accept interventions in connection with the technical parameters proposed by the applicant.
  The Commission may withdraw this application from the hearing if it is not advised by the Department of Industry, at least twenty days prior to the hearing, that the application is technically acceptable.

Gatineau, Quebec
Application No. 2009-0244-6
  Application by Radio Ville-Marie to amend the broadcasting licence for the French-language specialty FM radio programming undertaking CIRA-FM Montréal.
  The licensee proposes to add an AM transmitter in Gatineau to broadcast the programming of CIRA-FM Montréal in order to serve the population of Gatineau.
  The transmitter would operate on frequency 1350 kHz with a transmitter power of 1,000 watts daytime and 180 watts night-time.
  The licensee indicates that the addition of the transmitter in Gatineau is necessary in order to respond to the requests of the Greater Ottawa and Gatineau population.

Roberval, Quebec
Application No. 2009-0375-9
  Application by Groupe Radio Antenne 6 inc. to amend the broadcasting licence for the French-language commercial radio programming undertaking CHRL-FM Roberval.
  The licensee proposes to amend the station's authorized contours by decreasing the average effective radiated power from 16,600 to 15,031 watts (maximum effective radiated power of 50,000 watts with an effective height of the antenna above average terrain of 149.4 metres).
  The licensee has indicated that this application is non-severable from its application (2009-0380-9) to convert CFGT Alma to the FM band, also scheduled at this hearing (item 23).
  The licensee submitted that these amendments will have a positive impact on its application to convert its CFGT Alma station to the FM band since the decrease in CHRL-FM's contours will prevent an overlap in contours with its other Alma station CKYK-FM.

  The applicant proposes to maintain its adult contemporary music format.
  The new FM station would operate on frequency 97.7 MHz (channel 249B) with an average effective radiated power of 50,000 watts (maximum effective radiated power of 50,000 watts with an effective height of the antenna above average terrain of 77.6 metres).
  The applicant is requesting permission to simulcast the programming of the new FM station on CFGT for a period of 3 months from the date of implementation of the new FM station.
  The applicant is also requesting that the Commission revoke the licence of CFGT effective at the end of the simulcast period, pursuant to section 9(1)(e) of the Broadcasting Act.
  The Commission may withdraw this application from the hearing if it is not advised by the Department of Industry, at least twenty days prior to the hearing, that the application is technically acceptable.
