including elimination of the campus instructional category, elimination of
the distinction between Type A and Type B community stations, and revised
provisions for developmental stations*;
- *programming requirements*;
- *the role of volunteers;*
- *a new approach to funding the campus and community radio sector
through basic Canadian content development contributions from commercial
radio stations and the tangible benefits packages established in ownership
- *easing of limits on advertising on campus stations*;
- *technical matters, including the Commission's approach to low-power
- *how the Commission will deal with competitive applications;*
- *other means of delivering programming, such as new media*;
- *Canadian ownership and control requirements and collection of
ownership information*;
- *cultural diversity*; *and*
- *other matters relating to the campus and community radio sector.*

*Finally, the Commission sets out how it will implement the various aspects
of the new policy.*

*A summary of the new policy is provided in Appendix 1.*

*A dissenting opinion by Commissioner Marc Patrone is attached.*
