Fabrique de la Paroisse de La Patrie

On November 6, the CRTC approved an application by Fabrique de la Paroisse de La Patrie for a broadcasting licence for a religious French-language FM radio programming undertaking at La Patrie, on the frequency 88.5 MHz, channel 203LP, with an effective radiated power of 0.6 watts. The licence would expire August 31, 2002. 


VF8005 signed on the air.


On November 21, the CRTC set out an exemption order for low-power radio stations that provided programming that was derived solely from houses of worship. The exemption order went into effect immediately. Licensees of radio programming undertakings that considered their operations to be eligible for exemption under the order could file a simple statement asking that the Commission revoke their licences. VF8005's broadcasting licence would expire on August 31, 2014.

CRTC website to Wikipedia, and others, are now regularly providing new information in these areas.
