    Another thing to consider in this thread: Even if a station hoped to cross the border with their programming, you can't sell advertising north of the border anyway. That option went away around 2000, when the Canadian government stopped allowing sales offices in BC or other provinces.

    And, IIRC, there is a restriction on business expensing of advertising expenditures made on US radio and TV stations.

    Decades ago, Polaris and McLendon made nice money with KCMD television in Pembina, ND, which was marketed as a Winnipeg outlet. But the Canadian government prohibited the deduction of the cost of advertising on US media, and the rug was yanked from under them.

    US stations can still sell advertising from offices in Canada.

    I remember that..and it really hurt KVOS. They were a very popular tv station in Vancouver back in the 80's.

    American station owners could probably challenge this practice as violating the terms of NAFTA.

    Though Trump says he's going to pull us out of NAFTA, so that may be a moot point.

    As this is a Canadian income tax regulation, there is likely nothing that can be done.

    There is no plan to pull out of NAFTA... discussions have been about renegotiating certain aspects of the treaty.
