HD Radio in Toronto?

I got a Sangean HD radio for Christmas: from 401 and 404, the HD's on 92.5 90.3 and 101.3 come in clearly. 95.9 and 94.7 (and 105.9) sometimes which is too bad since Smooth Jazz and Oldies on both are interesting! Nothing from Buffalo. 
​-Does 95.9's HD's come from downtown Toronto syncho or from Oshawa?
​-Bell's HD's on 99.9 and 104.5 coming back any time soon?
​-Any new signals planned?

 are you saying Pat Boone & Paul Anka sound better on HD, or if not, what do you mean by "interesting"?      Wait 'til N. Hedley hears about this!

Last time they tried HD for Toronto (99/104) they almost burnt down the CN tower, so who knows.

Its funny how radio is still fully analog everywhere.

"interesting" in that Smooth Jazz and clear Oldies not available in analog. Scary: the crisp clean sound does make Pat Boone sound better (here ends the commercial for HD)
