Is this because PG didn't address the 'toughness' issue?

It looks like CKAC will become a traffic station. If its the case, RDS should start his own radio station like TSN did.

Meh, unless I see Jacques Demers crying this is probably not a big deal.

This actually rests on the CRTC's decision to convert 690AM to a 24/7 traffic station.

I'm not sure to understand why that would trouble CKAC

Yes, but if the CRTC denies the 690 transformation to a traffic info station, they will use CKAC's 730.

Since they are all owned by Astral now.

Wait and see I guess.

But regardless of the fact CRTC denies the conversion, Astral can always appeal the decision, delaying the process.

No one will respect them if they tank their way to success.

Man how retarded is that. An entire station hinges on this pathetic CRTC making a decision.

You don't even know the meaning of bad traffic having lived in Quebec.

True story.

So 24/7 traffic radio station would get more follower then CKAC. Or the maybe just the benefits (might be expensive to run CKAC...)

Haven't listened to that radio station for years, Mario Tremblay was good but most of the rest were clueless clowns.

Yeah it's sad and all, but wouldn't that make Dany Dube a free agent?

Well, you wanna be kept informed if the cul de sac at Louvain & d'Iberville is congested three in the morning. You may have to make a sudden getaway into the Miron park when the cops come knocking at your door.

(I don't mean YOU specifically. Just you in general.)

That's what happens when you don't hire more tough guys.

As long as the games are aired somewhere else, good riddance.
