At the CRTC

  • The commission has denied a request by Telus to allow six of its cable systems in Alberta and B.C. to be made exempt from licensing, after finding they failed in their duty to provide sufficient community programming. Telus, the CRTC found, was counting a lot of programming that wasn’t really local to the community in question.
  • The CRTC has begun the process for determining whether it should issue a call for applications for new radio stations in three markets, after receiving applications for them. Others who may be interested in filing competing applications have a month to manifest their interest. The applications are:
    • Scarborough, Ont.: Christian music station, 105.3 FM, 150W, by International Harvesters for Christ Evangelistic Association Inc.
    • Grande Prairie, Alta.: Commercial radio station, 100.3 FM, 100,000W, by Vista Radio
    • Vernon, B.C.: Community radio station, 97.9 FM, 1,000W, by Vernon Community Radio Society
