Douglas George Edwards was granted licences for low-power, English-language tourist FM radio programming undertakings at Barrie and Innisfil. The Barrie station would operate at 98.5 MHz with an ERP of 50 watts. 


CKEY-FM began broadcasting.

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.
