On June 7, the CRTC approved an application by Centre communautaire “Bon Courage” de Place Benoît for a broadcasting licence to operate a low-power, French-language community FM radio station in Montréal (borough of Saint-Laurent). The station would operate at 90.7 MHz with an ERP of 50 watts (non-directional antenna with an effective height of antenna above average terrain of 11.6 metres). During each broadcast week, the station would broadcast 70 hours of programming (all local), including 75 minutes of news (of which 50 minutes would be pure news). The applicant committed to dedicating at least 42% of its weekly programming to spoken-word programming. The station would broadcast popular, rock, dance, country, acoustic, easy listening, concert, folk, world beat and international, jazz and blues, non-classical religious and experimental music. In addition to its French-language programming, the applicant proposed to devote four hours per broadcast week to English-language programs and six hours per broadcast week to programs in Arabic, Spanish and Creole (which would represent approximately 10% of total programming). The licence would expire August 31, 2022.
CJPB 90.7 signed on the air in August.

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.
