    CBC analog shutdown in Quebec City

    Residents in Quebec City (as well as London, ON) are angry that CBC decided to shut down their analog transmitter without replacing it with a new digital transmitter.

    CBC wrote an article about this, but twisting out the facts with their headline:

    Que. man crusades against switch to digital TV
    Quebec City man wants to keep watching hockey for free

    Article: http://www.cbc.ca/news/arts/story/20...on-hockey.html

    We all know that Breton doesn't crusades against the switch to digital in general, he crusades against CBC's decision to shutdown the Quebec City transmitter entirely without any replacement.

    I think that the topic misses the major point. 13 markets with CBC analog English language tranmitters lose that singal because the Corporation refuses to transition their transmitter. Similarly, a further 7 markets lose their Radio-Canada French language transmitters.

    Cities where CBC Television transmitter will be shut down:
    • Barrie
    • Kitchener
    • Lethbridge.
    • London.
    • Moncton.
    • Saint John.
    • Kitchener.
    • Quebec City.
    • Saguenay.
    • Saskatoon.
    • Sherbrooke.
    • Trois-Rivières.
    • Whitehorse.

    Cities where Radio-Canada Television transmitter will be shut down:
    • Calgary.
    • Fredericton.
    • Windsor.
    • St. John's.
    • Charlottetown.
    • Halifax.
    • Yellowknife.
    Where was the CRTC, by only requiring originatng stations to make the Digital Transition?
