CKLN must remain on the airwaves!
More Info at:
We the Toronto community are shocked at the recent revoking of CKLN 88.1FM's broadcasting license by the CRTC. CKLN is the heart of our community. It has represented a multitude of communities throughout its history, communities that have been traditionally marginalized and ignored by the mainstream media. It is a major player in the distribution of alternative news and information, and has been the genesis of hundreds of careers from local artists to music lovers, comedians to dancers.
CKLN is vital to our community, and without its presence on air we lose not only a rich history of our city, but future opportunities and culture - which ultimately enriches our city and nation, culturally and monetarily. While it is true that former mismanagement affected it's ability to broadcast at certain points in recent history, we, the listening audience, is confident that the current administration and board is able to handle the tasks at hand. That is, to fulfill their duties to the listeners and the CRTC without failing to live up to the standards set before them.
Please support CKLN. This petition is put together by a listener and former volunteer who has little stake in CKLN besides its continual presence in our city as a hub of growth, culture and community.
Please see www.ckln.fm for more information. This petition will be sent to the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission and the Canadian National College Radio Association.
