PQ is very left wing - they won tonight and there was
an assassination attempt tonight :(

As crazy as this sounds, I can foresee Ottawa caving to them on broadcast

Bell moved CKGM 990 to clear channel 690 today but has also said they would
make 690 a French sports station to appease the CRTC.

My sources in Montreal suggest that Bell will get the wavier on English
stations IF they move CJAD to 690 and CKGM to 800.
