amendments to simplify the approach to licensing campus and community stations, including eliminating the distinction between Type A and Type B community stations;

amendments to incorporate new programming requirements, including revisions to content categories and subcategories and changes to Canadian content requirements; and

amendments to implement the new approach to funding campus and community radio.

The Commission calls for comments on:

increasing the minimum level of Canadian musical selections that campus and community radio stations must play; and

whether to impose requirements on such stations related to the involvement of volunteers in station operations and in the production of programming.

Two of my main concerns are the increase in CanCon for Community stations, and seeking to regulate "volunteers".. most programming on Campus/Community stations is done by volunteers anyway, is it not? Stop trying to regulate more!!

I personally will be submitting a comment/intervention.

Interested in hearing your opinion.
