Jump has been playing a more repetitive pure top40 style playlist. If you listen for more than a few hours it feels way more repetitive than their competitors, but that means more people who tune in at any given moment will hear a current chart topper. 100% of their playlist is pulled from the billboard hot 100 charts.
100% of their playlist can not be pulled from the Billboard Hot 100 since it is mandated to play 35% CanCon as well as no more than 49.9% hits. Have you been listening to the correct station?

The regulation you speak of exempts a charting Canadian production from one year within the date of it entering the chart. The CRTC allowed this in 1997 to support Top40 stations which had previously not been allowed. Yes, Hedley, Mia Martina, and other CanCon artists have entered their respective charts. 100% of Jump's playlist is charting hits. This is also their marketing slogan "Non Stop Hits", and their intended format.

The chart Jump uses to program it's playlist is the Billboard Canadian Hot 100, and I have found that every song they've played since launch has at some point charted on there.

32. The latest charts used to determine hits will be those contained in publications dated up to and including two Saturdays before the date of broadcast. Canadian selections that enter the Top 40 will continue to be considered as non-hits for one year from the date they first enter the Top 40. In addition, selections performed and aired live, or contained in a live performance recorded primarily for broadcast use will not be counted as hits.

a) You didn't say Canadian HOT 100 in your first post
b) The Canadian HOT 100 has only been around since 2007 or so, so the gold library tracks they play would not apply to your logic
c) NOBODY in radio follows the Canadian HOT 100 in making programming decisions, except for removing songs or adjusting the playlist so as to not go over the Hit Quotas (Ottawa and Montreal markets only.) Mediabase and BDS are the go to sources, which are just part of several resources used during music meetings.
d) As a Mediabase subscriber, I can tell you not every song they have played has been on the Canadian HOT 100.
e) The CRTC Non-Hit regulation is NOT JUST for CanCon, and it applies to the Ottawa and Montreal markets only.
f) The original reason for the Non-Hit quotas was to protect AM stations. Now it is to protect French language stations.

CIBU, Wingham, just went the other way, and is Classic Rock only (they used to be Classic/Alt rock, more alt than Q107 was I think), and seems to be mostly ran on automation, with a personality poking their head in the studio, or being quick to record stuff when their main station is playing music. They dropped the Alice Cooper program from evenings. I need to listen to their sister station on 101.7 to see what came of that.

In the same vein today Bob FM in London rebranded as Jack FM. Originally 102.3 was a Chum station but it was sold to Rogers several years ago. Rogers maintained the Bob moniker until this morning.

Don Taylor perhaps was the reason for the lack of TSN Radio Vancouver. Now that he is punted from Sportsnet Connected, there is no longer cross pollination Issues.
