|Town of Truro
On April 23, the CRTC approved an application by James K. Langille, Chief Administrative Officer, Town of Truro, and his successors, for a broadcasting licence to operate a low-power English-language FM radio programming undertaking to provide a tourist information service. The station would operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on a year-round basis. It would broadcast pre-recorded messages promoting tourist sites and events in Truro. It would operate at 107.1 MHz (channel 296LP) with an effective radiated power of 1.8 watts. The licence would expire August 31, 2010.
CJIS-FM began broadcasting.
On February 4, the CRTC denied CJIS-FM’s application to change the authorized contours of the station. 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.
Community information station CJIS left the air.

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.
