On September 12, the CRTC approved the application by Superior Info Radio for a low-power English-language FM radio station at Pigeon River Border Crossing. The applicant proposed a tourist information service that would provide general information relating to tourist sites and events in Thunder Bay. Programming would consist of one hour of recorded announcements repeated continually over a 24-hour period. The service would operate on a year-round basis. The licence would expire August 31, 2008. The new station would operate on 97.3 MHz, channel 247LP, with an effective radiated power of 1.5 watts.
CIPR began operations.
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. CIPR’s licence would expire August 31, 2015.

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.
