Please further note that all of a sudden,(as of Sept.30 2005) it's ok to run a jockless Jack fm (Rogers owned) EVEN THOUGH CRTC regulation CLEARLY STATES that a third of the broadcast week MUST be commited to local programming.
The elimination of morning, afternoon drive, and local news weather and traffic info durring that time leaves that station in a state that means it may as well be a Vancouver station or something.
My point? What makes Rogers so special?
email CRTC to complain, and they'll just email you back the following message:
"The CRTC does not wish to get involved with the labour disputes of a radio station"
LABOUR DISPUTE? Nice to know rogers can do anything they want, and somehow pass it off as something different, but to get a licence, You're at the CRTC's mercy NO MATTER WHAT the reason.
Did CRTC ever even try to say "Sorry Rogers, regulation is regulation, please obey it within an allocated time or concequences will apply"
NO! They just sat there and let it go!
MEANWHILE, there's a tv station trying to get a licence, and they can't have one!
Wether or not one can agree or disagree on the very idea that Star Ray tv should have licence, I'm sure we can all agree the CRTC is NOT being fair, and has opend the door to other businesses to tell CRTC to stuff it, much like how Rogers has.
"If you never say NO, How much is your YES worth?"
