Last remaining CBC LPRT AM transmitter in eastern Ontario moving to FM

I found out on the CRTC website that CBOF-4 a french CBC low-power relay AM transmitter operating at 1400 kHz in a little town of Rolphton located on Highway 17 more than 200 kilometers northwest of Ottawa had sent an application to the CRTC to move to the FM band at 98.5 MHz.

This will make it one of the last remaining low-power CBC 40 watt AM transmitters to move to FM in southern and eastern Ontario with only a few of the AM LPRT's left in northern Ontario, Quebec, Nunavut, the Northwest Territories and a handful in British Columbia I believe there may be a few LPRT'S left in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Link to the CRTC application from September 20, 2022:
