" The Canadian Radio Act requires that "a licenser may not broadcast....any false or misleading news." The provision has kept Fox News out of Canada."

Also the HuffPo and others likely.


BUt...90% of all Canadians live within 70 miles of the border and can get US TV stations. Their cable systems carry the US channels.

No need for FOX to have transmitters IN Canada. It can serve most of it from outside.
