No to Catholic radio. (News in Brief: Canada).
A disappointed Father Marian Gil, director of the Catholic corporation, said the rejection came despite an application that was "very compelling" and brought together many cultures and organizations. He urged supporters not to become discouraged or resigned, but to continue with the radio ministry as it now stands. The Catholic Radio Program currently broadcasts four days a week in English and seven days a week in Polish on CIAO AM 530 in Toronto. More information on the program can be found at its website: www.catholicradio.ca.
Meanwhile Protestant-Evangelical groups are acquiring one radio station after another. The latest station has opened in Whitehorse, YT, and another "Christian" (i.e. Protestant), radio station in Belleville, ON, has been given the green light by the CRTC. Do the Evangelicals know something that Catholics don't?
