Drivers flipping through radio stations may have noticed some new content on the airwaves in some parts of Yellowknife recently.

In the Kam Lake area, as recently as Tuesday, radios were able to pick up a signal on 106.9 FM of previously broadcast material from last year’s freedom convoy protest in Ottawa.

This includes broadcasts of Tucker Carlson, Jordan Peterson, Rebel News and other, lesser known, podcasters and personalities.

Residents flagged the content first on Reddit.

No new broadcaster has been listed on the CRTC website for Yellowknife.

  1. So, is the CBC trying to rat out the Yellowknife radio pirates to the CRTC because of the specific content said pirates are airing (i.e. conservative content from Rebel News, Tucker Carlson, etc.)?
