Canada never releases AM allocations.  As far as the working
arrangement between the FCC and the CRTC is concerned, 1570 is still
allocated for a 50-kW station in Laval.  1570 Westfield could never be
reactivated because the current FCC rules do not permit the
establishment of daytime-only stations (where daytime-only is defined
as any station entitled to less than 250 W at night).  That's why Alex
Langer moved 1050 Peterborough (is that tower still there?) to 650
Ashland -- even though it was a ``major change'', he wasn't trying to
create a *new* daytimer in the FCC's eyes.
