For added value, check out the (so far) only intervenor comment about the application on the CRTC's website: https://services.crtc.gc.ca/pub/ListeInterventionList/Documents.aspx?ID=176494&Lang=e (Spoiler: it's rather not in favour of the petition.)

-- Steve loathes SunTV and everything it stand for; he's tempted to post an intervenor note himself.

Less than 24 hours in, and there's already 116 intervenor comments - of which, I have only found one in support of SNN.

The CRTC would be crazy to grant this license, of course; they didn't before, and given that the network has only slipped in ratings, revenue, and quality since then, it would be silly to grant it now. "Well, you're worse and less popular than last time, and have been sanctioned numerous times by this very body but... sure, why not! Have all the money!"

Sun News isn't even Fox North - it's just bad. Even the conservatives don't watch it. It has a viewership of about 16,000 people; in terms of ratings, I think it sits somewhere south of the Aquarium Channel.

EDIT: Well, I meant this to be a reply to the main post... oh well.
