There are two more sizable AM signals remaining in the east in addition 
to CBE in Windsor. CBI 1140 in Sydney NS has a permit to move to FM but 
hasn't built yet. CBN 640 in St. John's NL hasn't (yet) applied to move 
to FM.

Out west, the CBC seems to prefer "nesting" city FM signals within 
wide-coverage AMs. So the AMs in Edmonton, Calgary, Regina and Winnipeg 
remain on the air, but with relatively low-power (class A or equivalent) 
FMs serving urban audiences as a simulcast.

CBU Vancouver, 50 kW on 690, has applied to move to FM but is fighting 
many commercial applicants for the frequency.
