Now how does the treaty work

Could the US say to Canada we would like to help our stations while

I know CKLW starts coming in at night at the Quebec/Ontario border by Cornwall.

But CJAD could then reach the eastern townships at night.

For that matter perhaps it is time for Canada, Mexico, the US et all
to redo the treaty. A lot has changed in 70 years.
