From what I read there a quite a few station in the US that do a similar thing, such as re-run the 6:00pm news up to the 11:00 news, then run the 11:00 news to the morning news, and so on.
But this is the CBC that doesn't even acknowledge on its website that it is available over-the-air in digital, and the same CBC that doesn't provide program details in PSIP while it's SRC sister does, and the same CBC that doesn't have over-the-air digital in the majority of provincial capitals with about 2 years to go before the deadline, and ... ok, I'll stop my rant now.
Great idea, but I imagine this is well down the list of priorities.
And you're right about the CRTC. They'd probably be a deer in the headlights over this. Would this be a "must carry" channel for BDUs? Is it a specialty channel? Does fee for carriage apply? There'd be years of studies/hearings on this.
