On June 6, the CRTC approved the application by Cameron Bell Consultancy Ltd. for a low-power English-language FM radio station. The applicant proposed a weather information service designed to inform travellers about weather conditions in mountain passes on the three major arterial highways to the east of Chilliwack. The licence would expire August 31, 2007. The station would operate on the frequency 88.1 MHz, channel 201LP, with an effective radiated power of 10 watts.
VF2522 signed on the air.
On November 21, the CRTC issued an exemption order for low-power radio stations that provided tourist information. It came into effect immediately. Licensees of radio stations that considered their operations to be eligible for exemption under the order could file a simple statement asking that the Commission revoke their licences.

Effective September 1st 2019, we will only be adding new material to these station histories in exceptional circumstances. Our intent to chronicle the early days of these radio and television stations has been achieved, and many new sources and technologies, from the CRTC website to Wikipedia, and others, are now regularly providing new information in these areas.
