"When we applied for a licence, the CRTC pushed us about this," he said. "(Stern) was definitely a topic of conversation. We (Standard) are a big broadcaster and have to deal with the CRTC on other issues.

Absolutely none. It's absolutely ridiculous.
Sounds like the grey market in satellite radio just makes more sense.
