k My media friends in Montreal say it is going to be interesting to see
waht the CRTC does. CIQC thinks they deserve it being the oldest license,
CJAD because of their track record. Don't however count out CKGM when they
get 990 back from CJAD, as their owners CHUM Ltd. might try to get both
the Montreal and Toronto stations.

However, lest we forget, this is also Quebec and there will be pressure to
give the license to a french broadcaster. Gee then CKVL could transmit at
50K non directional legally. CKVL is killing WEEI in the north west burbs.
