As I understand it, their morning show host (Jeff
Fillion??) ran several segments containing what is
considered "hate speech" in Canada [I think a number
of these segments were personal attacks on other
people].   After receiving several fines and official
judgements against them by the CRTC, last year the
CRTC revoked its license.  CHOI appealed, and at least
for the moment their license is safe on appeal.
