Sirius was required to commit within 150 days of the CRTC's decision
regarding its willingness to abide by the CRTC's license terms. They
formally accepted those terms today. 3 of the 4 French language
channels will be music channels; Sirius states that's equivalent to 16
"conventional" French language radio stations.
The only impediment (I believe) is whether or not the Heritage
Ministry challenges the CRTC decision that authorized Sirius; that
deadline is September 14. The government has not challenged CRTC
decisions in recent years.
Of course, it's somewhat of a pyrrhic victory for us in North America
salivating for easier access to CBC Radio One...since there is very
little on Radio One right now due to the lockout.
