"Voices" Radio (106.5 FM Toronto) R.I.P.?

Voices Radio has to be off the air as of July 25, 2015, as they have lost their right to broadcast. The CRTC did not renew their licence.
This applies to all their stations across the country.

In Toronto, this frees up 106.5 FM.
If you know anyone who loves Country music out of Buffalo NY, (106.5 FM WYRK) that signal will pick up here in Toronto for a while, until the CRTC grants a new (aboriginal?) licence to someone else.

"The Commission revokes the broadcasting licences for the Type B Native radio stations CKAV-FM Toronto, CKAV-FM-2 Vancouver, CKAV-FM-3 Calgary, CKAV-FM-4 Edmonton and CKAV-FM-9 Ottawa held by Aboriginal Voices Radio Inc. (AVR), effective 25 July 2015. The licensee must cease broadcasting by no later than the end of the broadcast day on that date."

I honestly do not know if they intend to continue broadcasting illegally anyway, or maybe online only, or to just go away...
