I wonder why they didn't just use the Teletoon West feed to launch Boomerang instead, they way we would have all 3.
Teletoon West uses the same licence as Teletoon East, so it would be like launching a new channel from scratch, except they have a channel number assigned on the satellite feeds. I don't think many other providers carry both time-shifted feeds.

They would have to apply to the CRTC for a licence; beg Rogers and Bell to carry the new channel; negotiate pricing, packaging and channel placement, source and pay for additional programming, etc.
cartoonnetwork.ca and boomerang-tv.ca have different schedules for for March 27. I think Zap2it and most TV providers use the same data source (Gracenote), so they probably all look the same.
