Satellite Radio Gets the Green Light

12 Sep ’05

Cabinet has approved the CRTC decision on satellite radio it so controversially reviewed over the last couple of weeks.

Cabinet has upheld a CRTC decision to issue two satellite radio licences after the applicants agreed to increase Canadian content and French-language service.

The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission now will hold hearings to get public input on the new commitments, which will be included as conditions of the licences, a spokesman for Heritage Minister Liza Frulla said Friday.
