Vancouver is an example of CTV and CTV2 broadcasting from the exact same antenna farm on Mount Seymour, but CTV2 is nominally based in Victoria BC with a main transmitter there, with the Vancouver transmitter being simply a repeater, according to the CRTC. It is all about satisfying the regulations, even though the net result is complete overlap.
