On July 29, the CRTC approved the application by Jack McGaw Consulting Incorporated for a low-power English- and French-language FM radio station to provide a tourist information service from the Confederation Bridge, Prince Edward Island. The station would broadcast, on a year-round basis, pre-recorded messages informing drivers using the Confederation Bridge of weather and highway conditions as well as attractions and services in nearby communities. The station would operate at 93.9 MHz (channel 230LP) with an effective radiated power of 37 watts. The licence would expire August 31, 2008.


CIRB-FM signed on the air.


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. CIRB-FM’s licence would expire August 31, 2015.
