Applications by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation to amend the broadcasting licence for the television programming undertaking CBAFT Moncton.

The licensee proposes to broadcast, on the rebroadcasting transmitters CBFNT Port-au-Port and CBFJ-TV St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, the programming of CBAFT instead of the programming from CBFT Montréal, Quebec, in order to adequately serve the populations of Port-au-Port and St. John's.

2. Montréal, Quebec
Application No. 2010-0560-4

Application by Canadian Hellenic Cable Radio Ltd. to amend the broadcasting licence for the commercial radio programming undertaking CKDG-FM Montréal.

The licensee proposes to change the frequency from 105.1 MHz (channel 268A) to 106.7 MHz (channel 294B1). The licensee also proposes to change the authorized contours by increasing the average effective radiated power (ERP) from 141 watts to 407 watts (maximum ERP from 224 watts to 1,200 watts with an effective height of antenna above average terrain of 194.4 metres).

The licensee wishes to increase the quality of the signal of CKDG-FM in the Greater Montréal Area and resolve the existing reception problems experienced with the current technical parameters.

The licensee indicated that the technical amendment would also allow it to have both of its ethnic radio services (CKDG-FM and the new ethnic service approved in Licensing of new radio stations in Montréal and Vaudreuil-Dorion, Quebec, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2007-217, 6 July 2007) in adjacent frequencies on the 106 band, which would facilitate the promotion and the advertising sales of the stations.

The Commission notes that, should the application be approved, the population within the 3 mV/m contour would increase from 562,500 to 980,100 and, within the 0.5 mV/m contour, from 2,070,000 to 2,405,000.

Application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to amend the broadcasting licence for the television programming undertaking CBWT Winnipeg.

The licensee proposes to add the transmitter CBWST Dauphin, Manitoba as a rebroadcasting transmitter for CBWT.

The licensee stated that CBWST can no longer receive feed from its former television affiliate CKX-TV Brandon, Manitoba, as CKX-TV ceased operations on 2 October 2009.

The Commission notes that the CBC will relinquish its current radiocommunication distribution undertaking licence for CBWST.

6. Edmonton, Alberta
Application No. 2009-1713-0

Application by Rawlco Radio Ltd. to renew the broadcasting licence for the English-language commercial radio programming undertaking CHMC-FM Edmonton, which expires 31 August 2010.

In regard to its existing Smooth Jazz music format, the licensee has requested to delete the following conditions of licence:

The licensee shall operate the station within the Specialty format as defined in A review of certain matters concerning radio, Public Notice CRTC 1995-60, 21 April 1995, and in Revised content categories and subcategories for radio, Public Notice CRTC 2000-14, 28 January 2000, as amended from time to time.

The licensee shall ensure that a minimum of 70% of all musical selections broadcast during each broadcast week shall be devoted to selections drawn from subcategory 34 Jazz and blues.

The licensee shall devote a minimum of 35% of all category 3 musical selections broadcast during each broadcast week to Canadian selections, broadcast in their entirety.

The licensee has indicated that it would be prepared to commit, by condition of licence, to a weekly two-hour specialty Smooth Jazz program.

The licensee states that while it has operated CHMC-FM as a Smooth Jazz Specialty station over its first licence term, it has suffered significant financial losses. The licensee states that the Smooth Jazz format is no longer viable in Edmonton and proposes to provide a middle-of-the-road format instead. The new format would include compatible music from other genres while mixing in Smooth Jazz music.

The intervention must be received by the Commission and by the applicant on or before the above-mentioned date. The Commission cannot be held responsible for postal delays and will not notify a party whose intervention is received after the deadline date.

A true copy must be sent to the applicant, and proof that this has been done must accompany the intervention sent to the Commission.

The Commission advises those who file and serve by electronic mode to exercise caution when using e-mail for service of documents or notification, as it may be difficult to establish that service has occurred.

Parties must ensure that, before initiating service through electronic mode, they will be able to satisfy the Commission, upon request, that service of the notification was completed.

 Each paragraph of the submission should be numbered. In addition, where the intervention is filed by electronic means, the line ***End of document*** should be entered following the last paragraph of the document, as an indication that the document has not been damaged during electronic transmission.
