Preamble for items 1 to 5

The Commission announces that it has received applications to renew the broadcasting licences for certain radio stations expiring 31 August 2017. Those licences were administratively renewed until 31 August 2018 in Various radio stations – Administrative renewals, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2017-224, 29 June 2017.

Three of the five licensees propose to continue the operation of their stations under the same terms and conditions as those in effect under the current licences, including those set out in Conditions of licence for commercial AM and FM radio stations, Broadcasting Regulatory Policy CRTC 2009-62, 11 February 2009. The licensee of the community radio station (see Item 1) will be required to adhere to the conditions set out in Standard conditions of licence for campus and community radio stations, Broadcasting Regulatory Policy CRTC 2012-304, 22 May 2012. Finally, two licensees are proposing amendments to the conditions of licence for their stations.

With the exception of CKFG-FM Toronto, which is in its first licence term, the other four stations were in non-compliance with one or more of their regulatory requirements in the previous licence term. At their last licence renewal, these stations’ broadcasting licences were therefore renewed for short-term periods to allow for an earlier review of their compliance with their regulatory requirements.

The Commission notes the serious and, in some cases, recurring nature of those instances of apparent non-compliance in the current licence term. The five licensees were notified of their respective instances of apparent non-compliance as set out in the present notice of consultation and of their potential impact on their licence renewal applications. All of the licensees were given the opportunity to respond to the Commission. This correspondence is available on the public file of each of the renewal applications set out in the present notice of consultation.

The Commission intends to consider the renewal of the broadcasting licences for these stations in accordance with the approach set out in Update on the Commission’s approach to non-compliance by radio stations, Broadcasting Information Bulletin CRTC 2014-608, 21 November 2014 (Broadcasting Information Bulletin 2014-608). The Commission will consider the use of any or all of the following measures set out in paragraph 7 of that information bulletin, as appropriate, given the facts underlying each application:

Specifically, as set out in Broadcasting Information Bulletin 2014-608, each instance of non-compliance will be evaluated in its context and in light of factors such as the quantity, recurrence and seriousness of the non-compliance. The Commission will also consider the circumstances, the arguments provided by the licensees and the actions taken to rectify the situation in order to continue operating their undertakings in compliance with their respective regulatory requirements.

1. Parrsboro Radio Society
Parrsboro, Nova Scotia
Application 2016-0994-2

Application by Parrsboro Radio Society to renew the broadcasting licence for the English-language community radio station CICR-FM Parrsboro,expiring 31 August 2017.

Commission records show that the licensee is in apparent non-compliance with the following sections of the Radio Regulations, 1986:

In CICR-FM Parrsboro – Licence renewal, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2015-473, 21 October 2015, the Commission granted CICR-FM a short-term licence renewal and imposed the requirement to file a report on internal policies and procedures given the station’s previous instances of non-compliance and others issues.

Should the Commission once again find the licensee in non-compliance, this would be the second consecutive licence term in which CICR-FM has been found in non-compliance with its regulatory requirements.

Given this recurrence of non-compliance and the apparent lack of cooperation by the licensee following repeated correspondence, the Commission has concerns regarding the licensee’s ability and commitment to operate the station in a compliant manner.

2. 9116-1299 Québec inc.
Maniwaki, Quebec
Application 2016-0927-3

Application by 9116-1299 Québec inc. to renew the broadcasting licence for the French-language commercial radio station CFOR-FM Maniwaki,expiring 31 August 2017.

Commission records show that the licensee is in apparent non-compliance with the following sections of the Radio Regulations, 1986 and with the following conditions of licence set out in Appendix 1 to CFOR-FM Maniwaki – Licence renewal, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2015-324, 21 July 2015 (Broadcasting Decision 2015-324):

In Broadcasting Decision 2015-324, the Commission granted CFOR-FM a short-term licence renewal and imposed corrective measures (additional CCD contributions and on-air announcements regarding its non-compliance) due to its non-compliance with conditions of licence relating to the payment of CCD shortfalls and the provision of proof of payment of CCD contributions for previous broadcast years.

Should the Commission once again find the licensee in non-compliance, this would be the third consecutive licence term in which CFOR-FM has been found in non-compliance with its regulatory requirements.

Given this recurrence of non-compliance and the apparent lack of cooperation by the licensee following repeated correspondence, the Commission has concerns regarding the licensee’s ability and commitment to operate the station in a compliant manner.

Application 2016-0601-3

Application by CPAM Radio Union.com inc. to renew the broadcasting licence for the French-language ethnic commercial AM radio station CJWI Montréal,expiring 31 August 2017.

Commission records show that the licensee is in apparent non-compliance with the following sections of the Radio Regulations, 1986 (the Regulations) and with the following conditions of licence set out in Appendix 1 to CJWI Montréal – Licence renewal, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2015-409, 31 August 2015 (Broadcasting Decision 2015-409):

In Broadcasting Decision 2015-409, the Commission granted CJWI a short-term licence renewal and imposed corrective measures (additional CCD contributions and on-air announcements regarding its non-compliance) due to its non-compliance with section 9(2) of the Regulations relating to the filing of annual returns, and with section 15(2) of the Regulations relating to CCD contributions.

Should the Commission once again find the licensee in non-compliance, it would be the third consecutive licence term in which CJWI has been found in non-compliance with its regulatory requirements.

Given the recurrence of the station’s non-compliance over the past several licence terms, the Commission has concerns regarding the licensee’s ability and commitment to operate the station in a compliant manner.

4. Groupe Médias Pam inc.
Saint-Constant, Quebec
Applications 2016-0606-3 and 2016-0605-5

Application (2016-0606-3) by Groupe Médias Pam inc. (Group Médias) to renew the broadcasting licence for the French-language commercial AM radio station CJMS Saint-Constant, expiring 31 August 2017.

The licensee also filed an application (2016-0605-5) to delete CJMS’s condition of licence relating to Canadian content development (CCD) contributions, set out in Appendix 1 to CJMS Saint-Constant – Acquisition of assets, licence renewal and maintaining of broadcasting orders, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2014-641, 11 December 2014 (Broadcasting Decision 2014-641), which reads as follows:

6. In addition to the basic annual contribution to Canadian content development (CCD) set out in section 15 of the Radio Regulations, 1986, the licensee shall make an annual contribution of $500 to CCD. Of this amount, no less than 20% per broadcast year must be directed to FACTOR or MUSICACTION. The remainder shall be allocated to parties and initiatives fulfilling the definition of eligible initiatives set out in paragraph 108 of Commercial Radio Policy 2006, Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC, 2006-158, 15 December 2006.

Commission records show that the licensee is in apparent non-compliance with the following sections of the Radio Regulations, 1986 (the Regulations) and with the following condition of licence set out in Appendix 1 to Broadcasting Decision 2014-641:

In Broadcasting Decision 2014-641, the Commission approved an application by Groupe Médias for authority to acquire the assets of CJMS from 3553230 Canada inc. As such, the station is in its first licence term under Groupe Médias.

In that decision, the Commission also renewed CJMS’s broadcasting licence for a short-term period due to its non-compliance with sections 8(6) and 9(4) of the Regulations, as well as with sections 8(1) (logs and records) and 8(5) (retaining a clear and intelligible tape recording or other exact copy of all matter broadcast). The Commission also imposed broadcasting orders requiring the licensee to comply at all times with those sections of the Regulations.

Should the Commission once again find the licensee in non-compliance, this would bethe fifth consecutive licence term in which CJMS has been found in non-compliance with its regulatory requirements, and the first licence term under Groupe Médias.

Given the recurrence of the station’s non-compliances and its possible failure to respect the orders imposed at its last licence renewal, the Commission has concerns regarding the licensee’s ability and commitment to operate the station in a compliant manner.

5. Intercity Broadcasting Network Inc.
Toronto, Ontario
Applications 2016-0920-8 and 2016-0919-0

Application (2016-0920-8) by Intercity Broadcasting Network Inc. (Intercity) to renew the broadcasting licence for the English-language commercial specialty radio station CKFG-FM Toronto, expiring 31 August 2017.

The licensee also filed an application (2016-0919-0) to amend CKFG-FM’s conditions of licence relating to the broadcast of musical selections and to Canadian content development (CCD) contributions, set out in English-language FM radio station in Toronto, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2011-369, 9 June 2011 (Broadcasting Decision 2011-369), which read as follows:

3. The licensee shall devote at least 50% of all musical selections broadcast in each broadcast week to programming drawn from content subcategory 33 (World beat and international).

6. In addition to the required basic annual contribution to Canadian content development (CCD) set out in section 15 of the Radio Regulations, 1986, as amended from time to time, the licensee shall make a contribution of $249,545 to CCD, to be allocated as follows over seven consecutive broadcast years upon commencement of operations: $35,800 in year one, $37,024 in year two, $36,330 in year three, $36,346 in year four, $36,330 in year five, $36,296 in year six and $36,418 in year seven.

Of this amount, the licensee shall allocate no less than 20% per broadcast year to FACTOR. The remaining amounts of this additional CCD contribution shall be allocated to parties and initiatives fulfilling the definition of eligible initiatives set out in paragraph 108 of Commercial Radio Policy 2006, Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2006-158, 15 December 2006.

The licensee wishes to replace the above condition of licence 3 with the following:

3. The licensee shall devote at least 37% of all musical selections broadcast in each broadcast week to programming drawn from content subcategory 33 (World beat and international).

In regard to condition of licence 6, Intercity, in response to letters from Commission staff, withdrew its request.

Commission records indicate that the licensee is in apparent non-compliance with the following sections of the Radio Regulations, 1986 (the Regulations) and with the following conditions of licence set out in Appendix 1 to Broadcasting Decision 2011-369.

Further, it appears that the licensee failed to meet the objectives and expectations relating to the broadcast of montages set out in Requirements for the broadcast of radio montages, Broadcasting Information Bulletin CRTC 2011-728, 24 November 2011.

In Broadcasting Decision 2011-369, the Commission approved an application by Intercity for a broadcasting licence to operate an FM radio station in Toronto that would launch as CKFG-FM. As such, the station is in its first licence term.

In Licensing of new radio stations to serve Scarborough and technical changes for existing radio stations serving Scarborough, Toronto and Whitchurch-Stouffville, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2014-574, 5 November 2014 (Broadcasting Decision 2014-574), the Commission denied requests by Intercity for technical changes to CKFG-FM as well as for amendments to its conditions of licence relating to over-and-above CCD contributions. In that decision, the Commission determined that the licensee was in non-compliance with sections 9(2), 15(2) and 15(5) of the Regulations and conditions of licence 6 and 7. The Commission indicated that it would review the licensee’s performance and the manner in which it had remedied the previous repeated instances of non-compliance as part of the licence renewal for CKFG-FM in 2017.

Given the number of instances of apparent non-compliance and the instances of non-compliances noted in Broadcasting Decision 2014-574, the Commission could conclude that the licensee has demonstrated that it does not understand its regulatory obligations. Because of this, coupled with the fact that the Commission has already required corrective measures by the licensee during the current licence term, with which the licensee does not appear to have complied, the Commission has concerns regarding the licensee’s ability and commitment to operate the station in a compliant manner.

Procedure

Deadline for interventions, comments or answers

31 July 2017

The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission Rules of Practice and Procedure (the Rules of Procedure) apply to the present proceeding. The Rules of Procedure set out, among other things, the rules for content, format, filing and service of interventions, answer, replies and requests for information; the procedure for filing confidential information and requesting its disclosure; and the conduct of public hearings. Accordingly, the procedure set out below must be read in conjunction with the Rules of Procedure and related documents, which can be found on the Commission’s website under “Statutes and Regulations.” Guidelines on the CRTC Rules of Practice and Procedure, Broadcasting and Telecom Information Bulletin CRTC 2010-959, 23 December 2010, provides information to help interested persons and parties understand the Rules of Procedure so that they can more effectively participate in Commission proceedings.

An intervention or an answer from a respondent must be filed with the Commission and served on the applicant on or before the above-mentioned date. An answer from a respondent must also be served on any other respondent.

Interventions and answers must clearly identify the application referred to and indicate whether parties support or oppose the application, or, if they propose changes to it, include the facts and grounds for their proposal.

Parties are permitted to coordinate, organize, and file, in a single submission, interventions by other interested persons who share their position. Information on how to file this type of submission, known as a joint supporting intervention, as well as a template for the covering letter to be filed by the parties, can be found in Changes to certain practices for filing interventions – Expansion of filing practices to include the filing of joint supporting comments for broadcasting policy proceedings, Broadcasting Information Bulletin CRTC 2010-28-1, 10 December 2010.

The Commission encourages interested persons and parties to monitor the record of the proceeding, available on the Commission’s website, for additional information that they may find useful when preparing their submissions.

Submissions longer than five pages should include a summary. Each paragraph of all submissions should be numbered, and the line ***End of document*** should follow the last paragraph. This will help the Commission verify that the document has not been damaged during electronic transmission.

Pursuant to Filing submissions for Commission proceedings in accessible formats, Broadcasting and Telecom Information Bulletin CRTC 2015-242, 8 June 2015, the Commission expects incorporated entities and associations, and encourages all Canadians, to file submissions for Commission proceedings in accessible formats (for example, text-based file formats that allow text to be enlarged or modified, or read by screen readers). To provide assistance in this regard, the Commission has posted on its website guidelines for preparing documents in accessible formats.

Submissions must be filed by sending them to the Secretary General of the Commission using only one of the following means:

by completing the
[Intervention/comment/answer form]

or

by mail to
CRTC, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0N2

or

by fax at
819-994-0218

A true copy of each intervention or answer from a respondent must be sent to the applicant and, in the case of a respondent to an application, to any other respondent.

Parties who send documents electronically must ensure that they will be able to prove, upon Commission request, that service/filing of a particular document was completed. Accordingly, parties must keep proof of the sending and receipt of each document for 180 days after the date on which the document is filed. The Commission advises parties who file and serve documents by electronic means to exercise caution when using email for the service of documents, as it may be difficult to establish that service has occurred.

In accordance with the Rules of Procedure, a document must be received by the Commission and all relevant parties by 5 p.m. Vancouver time (8 p.m. Ottawa time) on the date it is due. Parties are responsible for ensuring the timely delivery of their submissions and will not be notified if their submissions are received after the deadline. Late submissions, including those due to postal delays, will not be considered by the Commission and will not be made part of the public record.

The Commission will not formally acknowledge submissions. It will, however, fully consider all submissions, which will form part of the public record of the proceeding, provided that the procedure for filing set out above has been followed.

In the event that an application is brought to an oral phase of the hearing, and if parties wish to appear, they must provide reasons why their written interventions or answers are not sufficient and why an appearance is necessary. Parties requiring communication support must state their request on the first page of their intervention. Only those parties whose requests to appear have been granted will be contacted by the Commission and invited to appear at the public hearing.

Persons requiring communications support such as assistance listening devices and sign language interpretation are requested to inform the Commission at least twenty (20) days before the commencement of the public hearing so that the necessary arrangements can be made.
