Aside from Radio Canada International (now gutted anyway) and the local
Montreal radio and TV newsrooms, English-language CBC has been based in
Toronto pretty much from the beginning. The national master control
facility for English Radio 1, Radio 2 and TV has been in Toronto since the
current broadcast center was built in the 1990s. I think there may be some
distribution of Radio-Canada's French-language services that passes
through the Toronto facility, but otherwise the rest of Radio-Canada comes
from Maison Radio-Canada in Montreal (save, of course, for small local
newsrooms in other parts of the country, including a very small local
operation in Toronto for CJBC/CBLFT.)

About the only place where CBC and SRC are managed in common these days is
the corporate headquarters in Ottawa.
