Re: The Evanovs’ Latest Plan: Switch Pride FM To 103.5 & CIDC To 103.7

I think it's debatable whether this inordinate amount of time to render a decision is in the public's interest. Is this a protectionist tactic? I think we'll have our answer when the decision is eventually rendered.

If I were Evanov I'd offer CIUT a lot of cash to swap frequencies. The station was in serious debt a few years ago after their (now former) station manager allegedly embezzled over $150,000 and they'll likely lose much of their budget due to Ford's "student choice initiative" so I think they'd find a large infusion of cash for a frequency swap very tempting.
