  PREAMBLE
  Item 1
  This involves three Category 2 specialty services, KBS Canada TV, ISC Canada TV and SBS Canada TV. Seabridge Media Inc., the licensee, is in apparent non-compliance with the Specialty Services Regulations, 1990 following a change in effective control which occurred in January 2008.
  Items 2 to 27
  The Commission intends to consider, subject to interventions, items 2 to 27 during the non-appearance phase of the public hearing.
1. Across Canada
Application No. 2009-0960-9
  Please note that the information pertaining to the matters referred to below is only available in hard copy in the public examination file at the CRTC addresses listed in this Notice. However, submissions received from interested parties will be posted on the Commission’s Website.
  Seabridge Media Inc. (Seabridge) is the licensee of three Category 2 specialty programming undertakings serving the Korean community in Canada, licensed in Broadcasting Decisions 2004-417, 2004-418, and 2004-419, respectively:
  SBS Canada TV (SBS)
ISC Canada TV (ISC)
KBS World (KBS)
  History

On 14 April 2008, Seabridge filed an application seeking authority to effect a change in its effective control (Application No. 2008-0547-6) pursuant to subsection 10(4)(a) of the Specialty Services Regulations, 1990 (the Regulations). The transaction involved the transfer of all issued and outstanding shares of Seabridge, held by Matt Han (50%), Joon Han (15%), Frank Quo Vadis (25%) and Stanley Wong (10%), to Mr. Ho Seong Kim, giving him effective control of the broadcasting undertakings held by Seabridge.

  Commission analysis found that control had already changed hands on 29 January 2008, at which time all members of the board of directors resigned. Mr. Kim was then named as the sole director.
  The application was approved by administrative letter (L2008-0126) on 28 November 2008, with a reminder that compliance with the Regulations is required at all times. The approval was made conditional upon the submission of a tangible benefits proposal in the amount of $59,241 within 30 days following the conditional approval. This condition was not complied with. Furthermore, several attempts by the Commission to contact Seabridge were left unanswered.
  The Commission wrote a final letter to Seabridge dated 24 April 2009, reminding it of its obligation to comply with the condition of the 28 November 2008 approval and requiring it to do so by 15 May 2009. The Commission has not received a response from Seabridge in regards to this matter.
  Issues

Based on the evidence before it, the Commission intends to inquire and discuss the following issues, in order to determine appropriate regulatory measures:

  Regulatory Compliance

1) Change in effective control without prior Commission approval

The Commission notes that Seabridge has apparently failed to comply with the condition of the approval letter dated 28 November 2008, in which the Commission conditionally approved a change in Seabridge’s effective control. Thus, the condition for the Commission’s approval of the change in control has not been fulfilled, nor has Seabridge provided evidence of having reversed the transaction. Accordingly, Seabridge is in apparent breach of section 10(4)(a) of the Regulations – by having changed effective control, without valid Commission approval.

 

2) Logs and records

Pursuant tosection 7(2) of the Regulations, a licensee must submit to the Commission, within 30 days after the end of each month, a program log or machine-readable record of its programming for the month, with a certificate by or on behalf of the licensee attesting to the accuracy of the contents of the log or record.

While program logs for KBS have been submitted to the Commission, program logs for SBS and ISC remain outstanding. Multiple attempts by the Commission at resolving the issue have been unsuccessful. Seabridge is therefore in apparent breach of section 7(2) of the Regulations.

 

3) Annual returns

Section 8(1) of the Regulations requires licensees to file an annual return with the Commission on or before 30 November of each year for the year ending on the previous 31 August.

  The Commission has received annual returns for all three services for the 2007 and 2008 broadcast years ending.
  Regarding KBS, Seabridge has stated that KBS commenced operations on 30 May 2006, yet no annual return has been received for the 2006 broadcast year.

Regarding SBS and ISC, Seabridge has submitted that the two services were operational as of 4 June 2007. In the 2007 annual returns filed for these two services, Seabridge indicated that no revenues had been generated for the broadcast year.
The licensee is therefore in apparent breach of section 8(1) of the Regulations.

 

4) Compliance with conditions of licence

As noted above, the Commission has received program logs for KBS, while logs for SBS and ISC have not been filed with the Commission.

In this context, the Commission may wish to discuss Seabridge’s compliance with its conditions of licence, specifically the condition related to the broadcast of Canadian programs.

  Other Matter

The Commission notes that should any of the licences for the above-referenced services be revoked, distribution of the licensee’s signals would be in non-conformity with section 3 of the Broadcasting Distribution Regulations.

  Process

The Commission intends to inquire into, hear and render determinations with respect to the above noted matters. Therefore, pursuant to sections 12 and 24 of the Broadcasting Act (the Act), the Commission calls Seabridge Media Inc. to a public hearing to be held in Gatineau to show cause:

 
  • why a mandatory order under section 12 of the Act requiring the licensee of the three services to conform to the Regulations and to its conditions of licence should not be issued; and
 
  • why the Commission should not suspend or revoke Seabridge’s licences pursuant to sections 9 and 24 of the Act.
  The Commission notes that additional documents may be added to the public file subsequent to the issuance of this Notice. Accordingly, interested parties are a advised to consult the public file for this item on an ongoing basis.

In addition, the public file, with respect to the above noted application seeking authority to effect a change in the effective control of Seabridge, will form a part of the evidentiary record of this proceeding.

Application No. 2009-0966-6
  Application by Sogetel inc. to obtain a broadcasting licence to operate a Class 1 terrestrial broadcasting distribution undertaking to serve Saint-Liboire.
  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 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:

 
  • any of the distant Canadian television signals set out in the List of Part 3 eligible satellite services; and
  • 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 and distant Canadian 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 for the promotion of discretionary programming services and packages, to provide subscribers with information regarding customer service and channel realignments, cable FM service, additional cable outlets and non-programming services, including Internet and telephone services.

  The applicant is also requesting new licences to continue the operation of the undertakings under the same terms and conditions as those in effect under the current licences.
  The value of the transaction, based on the terms of the Asset Purchase Agreement, is $4,500,000. Pursuant to the Commercial Radio Policy, 2006 (Public Notice 2006-158), the applicant proposes a tangible benefits package representing 6% of the value of the transaction.
  In Broadcasting Decision 2005-192, the Commission approved the application by Newcap Inc. for authority to acquire from Big Pond Communications 2000 Inc., the assets of the radio programming undertaking CJUK-FM. Consequently, the proposed transaction will occur shortly after a previous change in control of one of the two radio programming undertakings implicated in this transaction.

In Broadcasting Notice of Consultation 2009-180, the Commission announced the receipt of an application by Newcap Inc. which proposed to change the authorized contours of CJUK-FM by increasing the effective radiated power from 37 to 250 watts (non-directional antenna with an effective height of antenna above average terrain of 36.8 metres). While the Commission has not yet rendered a decision on this application, in the event of the Northwoods purchase of CJUK-FM being approved, Northwoods has confirmed its intention to proceed with the CJUK-FM technical amendment application (2009-0450-0).
