Or there is space on the CBC tower...

Space on the tower actually isn't a big concern as they could share an antenna with one of the analog UHF broadcasts. The big problem is they are exceeding new standards for maximum electromagnetic radiation permitted in public space for a small area in the park near the tower. Until this is resolved, no changes can be made to the tower. Several plans to fix this have been put forward and most of them were rejected for one reason or another. I believe they now have a plan in place but don't know the time-line for it.

It is actually a bit ridiculous as the levels are perfectly fine for occasional exposure. The new regulations though assume prolonged exposure (several hours every day). Considering how small the area is, unless someone decided to pitch a tent and live in the park, or sunbath for hours a day in that small area, it won't cause problems for anyone. It is an example of bureaucracy gone crazy.
