On October 20 the CRTC approved the application by Kenneth Clarke Odland (OBCI) for a broadcasting licence to operate an English-language low-power tourist FM radio programming undertaking in Wolseley. The station would broadcast a year-round tourist information service consisting of pre-recorded messages promoting tourist attractions and community events. It would also broadcast weather bulletins and forecasts, reports on highway surface conditions and other travel-safety information. The station would operate at 93.1 MHz (channel 226LP) with an effective radiated power of 43.7 watts. The licence would expire August 31, 2012.
CISE-FM began broadcasting.
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.
Highway One Travelers Information Radio Ltd. requested the revocation of its licence for CISE-FM, in order to continue its operation as an exempt undertaking. The CRTC revoked the licence on March 10.
In the fall, CISE-FM and CISE-FM-1 (Caron) were removed from the ISEDC database which meant they were no longer operational. CISE operated with 44 watts on 93.1 MHz while CISE-FM-1 broadcast on 95.3 MHz with ERP of 34 watts. It is not certain when the Caron transmitter went on 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.
