RYERSON COLLEGE noncommercial CKLN/TORONTO has gotten a temporary reprieve, with a judge staying the CRTC's revocation of the station's license. The GLOBE AND MAIL reports that the court action will allow the station to remain on the air until a federal court decides whether an appeal of the CRTC ruling will be allowed.
The CRTC revoked CKLN's license after "breach of numerous regulations and conditions of license" and an inability to "convince the Commission that it could operate the station in a compliant manner going forward." The action followed CRTC investigations that began in JULY 2009 after complaints were received regarding the station's management, including a seven-month lockout from the studios by the building manager, and the station subsequently failed to comply with several CRTC regulations, including submission of audible on-air tapes, program logs and other records.
