AM is dying in Canada because the government wants it that way. One could argue, I suppose, that the way FCC regulates radio in the US has effectively marginalized AM, but at least here there's no specific government policy to kill AM.
Canada is gradually moving all radio programming to FM stations and taking the AMs down permanently, although they remain "notified" to the other North American countries for treaty purposes and interference calculations.
