For the Montreal case, I believe it was the only way they could share the new CBC/SRC UHF antenna on Mount Royal. 36 would have worked (better, too, since it could go as high as 845kW, ISTR), had V stayed on the mountian on 35, but V will be statying 3-4 km away, and that is too close for adjacent channel broadcasting without being co-located.
