Here is the FCC AM database record (raw):

0B973DA0009B3518 730CKAC        CAQUMontreal                      N453050W 735826                                               UU2    50.00000 2156.52             DA1 2 0  SO   A                  00108                      FCC   19840706000000

You can see down near the end, right after it says ``DA1 2 0  SO'', is
the letter A.  This is the class of the station as far as the FCC is
concerned, and they got it from the CRTC.  Compare, instead, CKVL:

1BD542C0009B3518 850CKVL        CAQUVerdun                        N452332W 733516                                               UD2    50.00000 1863.62             DA2 2 0  SO   B                  0021919661212              FCC   19840802000000
1BD6C960009B3518 850CKVL        CAQUVerdun                        N452332W 733516                                               UN2    10.00000  925.37             DA2 3 0  SO   B                  0021919661212              FCC   19840706000000

You can see quite clearly that CKVL is, indeed, a class B station as
one would expect.  Now, it is certainly true that some other Canadian
730s are class Bs, as witness:

0B7A3FC0009B3518 730CKLG        CABCVancouver                     N49 757W123 018                                               UN2    50.00000 2048.69             DA2 4 0  SO   B                  00320                      FCC   19840706000000

There are lots of class A stations on 800:

XEROX, CMEB, ZYH-705 (600 kW), ZYJ-457, HJBW, PJB3 (the first record
I've seen with augmentations!), BX6A, and YVTB.  Of course, none north
of the Rio Grande.
