CBA to move to FM

I had once read somewhere that the reason the CBC hadn't already moved CBA
was that ships at sea were dependent upon it for weather forecasts.  I
gather that's no longer the case(?).

Question:  What has prompted the mass move to FM in Canada, anyway?  It's
been happening for years (I think CFNB in Fredericton has been off the air
for at least a decade).  Is AM THAT much of a relic?  Come on.
