At the CRTC

  • As mandated by the CRTC once every two years, CBC Quebec is holding a public consultation with the anglophone community on May 2 in Montreal. Attendance is free and open, but you’re asked to RSVP.
  • First notice of hearing in a while. The applications:
    1. A low-power Native FM station in Potlotek First Nation in St. Peter’s, N.S.
    2. Converting a 5W developmental community FM station in Val-des-Lacs (106.5 FM, near Mont Tremblant) to a low-power community station.
    3. A new French-language community radio station in Ottawa-Gatineau at 1350 AM. This station would use the same frequency, site and signal as the former Radio Centre-Ville Ville-Marie (CIRA-5) retransmitter there (1000W daytime, 180W nighttime).
    4. Dufferin Communications (Evanov Radio) acquiring Christian music station CFWC-FM Brantford, Ont., from Sound of Faith Broadcasting, for $440,000.
    5. Dufferin converting ethnic station CKJS Winnipeg (810 AM) from AM to FM (92.5 MHz, 35,000W). In its application, the company reveals sister station CFJL-FM (Hot 100.5) has lost $700,000 in four years.
    6. A corporate re-organization at Blackgold Broadcasting

    Actually, it’s Boston and Pittsburgh that won’t get to choose between local and national Stanley Cup telecasts. Philadelphia didn’t qualify for the Cup tournament.

    Slight correction. The Gatineau station would be using the former facilities of Radio Ville-Marie, not Radio Centre-Ville.

    Wow ! Great read, great work sir ! Have not begun to get close to finish reading and wanted to comment on the McLean thing …

    I just find it sad that we ,as a society and a country ,are not going forward and always fall into the same traps. I will not go into the political point of views because i too would fall in the same old trap but i wonder why we can never start with the simple facts in mind. French Canada and English Canada are different, have always had differences (!!!) but managed to live in peace while respecting our opinions. If you venture into trying to talk about it from the english side you better be ready to face the first line of defense that quite often has nothing to do with the point you are trying to make.

    It s as if by living together we forget that we are culturally different. Two solitudes.
    They do exist and one needs to keep that in mind when talking about the other. Proof has been made that we can live together somehow but we should know better that s all. Simply because the points we are trying to make even with good intentions will be drowned in the same basic pool in which we have been soaking for ages…

    You see ? I am going round in a circle trying not to step on anyone’s toes while wondering if i should or not post this comment. That is what McLean should have done….
