Commentaire / Comment
I am opposed to Sher-E-Punjab acquiring a license to broadcast in Canada and for that matter in the U.S.A.
Sher-E-Punjab's board is intertwined with BBC Broadcasting, Inc / KRPI AM with antennas they rent in Ferndale, WA and they want to build 5 antennas in Point Roberts, WA.
The people of Point Roberts will receive NO benefit from having these 50,000 watt 24/7 antennas in our tiny community and great harm will result. We will lose 5 acres of beautiful woods at the very entrance to our 5 square mile tip of the Tsawwassen peninsula. 4 houses and 5 businesses are within 500 ft. of the proposed antennas. We are all shaking our heads and wondering how such a thing could ever happen.
BBC Broadcasting/KRPI is partially owned and operated by the family that owns and operates Sher-E-Punjab. By finding loop-holes in both our countries regulations, this travesty of an antenna farm is being shoved down our throats.
G. (Dale) Badh of Sher-E-Punjab owns the land in Point Roberts where the antennas are proposed to be built.He is also the COO of Sher-e-Punjab and a major owner of BBC Broadcasting, Inc. If there was such a thing as "business incest" this would be a good example.
I request to appear at the public hearing if it is held in Metro Vancouver.

Raisons pour comparaitre / Reasons for appearance
The FCC was misled about the impact these proposed antennas would have on Point Roberts people and our next-door neighbors, the people of Tsawwassen B.C. (literally next door...--hundreds of our houses are only 30-40 meters apart...just across our unfenced invisible border)
The people of Tsawwassen share this small peninsula with the people of Point Roberts. In addition to agreements between our community's fire departments, Ham radio emergency communications, sharing of recreational facilities, rights to library cards in each community, we belong to mutual-volunteer groups, clubs, and frequent each others businesses. This is a very harmonious relationship.
The members of the Badh family are largely responsible for this nightmare antenna farm being proposed for our town while vising their fellow countrymen in Tsawwassen with a miriad of serious effects due to the signal being aimed right at them.....

Reason for necessity to appear: This situation is much too complex to summarize in just a few sentences.
