On January 21, the CRTC approved the application by Fabrique de la Paroisse Sacré-Coeur de Jésus de Crabtree to operate a low-power French-language FM radio station in Crabtree that would provide religious programming. The applicant indicated that the station would broadcast 10 hours per week of religious programming, including religious services. The proposed station would operate at 106.5 MHz (channel 293LP) with an effective radiated power of 1 watt. The licence would expire August 31, 2009.
VF8022 began broadcasting.
On November 21, the CRTC set out an exemption order for low-power radio stations that provided programming that was derived solely from houses of worship. The exemption order went into effect immediately. Licensees of radio programming undertakings that considered their operations to be eligible for exemption under the order could file a simple statement asking that the Commission revoke their licences. VF8022’s broadcasting licence would expire on August 31, 2014.
Fabrique de la Paroisse Sacré-Coeur de Jésus de Crabtree requested the revocation of its broadcasting licence for the French-language religious FM radio programming undertaking VF8022 Crabtree, to continue its operation as an exempt undertaking pursuant to Exemption order for low-power radio stations that provide programming from houses of worship. The licence was revoked by the CRTC on March 18.

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.
