On May 20th the CRTC approved application for a new low power non-commercial TV station in Abbotsford to broadcast religious programming from local studios.  Control was to rest with the Board of the B.C. Conference of the Mennonite Brethren Churches, administered by the Clearbrook Mennonite Brethren Church.  The applicant stated that 80% of the Church's members are seniors over the age of 65, while 50% are 80 years of age or older and many were not able to attend church services but wanted to watch them on TV.  On October 12th the CRTC approved application by Rogers Cablesystems to be relieved from the requirement of having to carry the station on its local cable system.  Rogers had cited a lack of analog cable capacity and the fact that the station had not asked for cable carriage.
