Is it possible I have misunderstood a CBC Radio announcement about such a cancellation? I am a retired person on a fixed budget and my TV antenna is my contact to TVO—can’t afford anything fancier!

    1. Hey Nancy. TVO is ceasing over-the-air transmission outside of Toronto. This will affect those who use an antenna to access their television channels. If you subscribe to cable television like Rogers, Bell or Shaw, you will continue to see TVO.

  2. Well, the black hole that is Toronto wins again. This just illustrates the regard or lack of that Queen’s Park holds the rest of Ontario in.
