#CBC Tower, 371m, Shawinigan ( demolished in 2002, replaced by new tower of possible same height) In 2008, the station applied to the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission to add a rebroadcaster in Sudbury (Greater Sudbury), citing that this "would allow Sudbury residents who own property on Manitoulin Island to stay connected by providing them with important information relating to local weather, marine and road reports and events specific to Manitoulin." That application was denied by the CRTC on April 29, 2008. CRTC Decision 2008-90 At one point, WWTV (not WWUP) was seen on cable in the Canadian Sault (Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario). However, local cable provider Shaw Communications switched its CBS feed to WWJ-TV from Detroit (Detroit, Michigan). For many years, WWTV was the only in-market (media market) station on cable from the American (United States) side of the locks as other American (United States) stations were fed from Flint (Flint, Michigan) and Detroit. WWTV is also available on cable television in much of Michigan north of Lansing (Lansing, Michigan) as well as Charter (Charter Communications) cable systems in Midland (Midland, Michigan). Persona (Persona Communications) systems (now EastLink (EastLink (company))) in Sudbury (Greater Sudbury), Ontario carried the station until around 2009 when it was replaced by Buffalo (Buffalo, New York)'s WIVB-TV. WWTV was also originally seen on the Cablevision (Cablevision (Canada)) systems in Rouyn-Noranda and Val-d'Or, Quebec until the early-2000s when it was replaced with WBZ-TV from Boston, Massachusetts. For many years, WGTQ was available in large portions of the Canadian (Canada) provinces of Ontario and Quebec. However, it has not been seen in Canada since the early-2000s. In Sudbury (Greater Sudbury), the Persona (Persona Inc.) cable system pulled WGTQ in favor of WXYZ-TV from Detroit. In Rouyn-Noranda (Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec) and Val-d'Or, Quebec, Cablevision (Cablevision (Canada)) replaced WGTU with Boston

The construction of the railway allowed exploitation of these mineral resources as well as large-scale lumber extraction. thumb left Artist's rendering of Sudbury in 1888 (File:Sudbury 1888.jpg) Mining began to replace lumber as the primary industry as improvements to the area's transportation network, including trams, made it possible for workers to live in one community and work in another. Sudbury’s economy was dominated by the mining industry for much of the 20th century. Two major mining companies were created: Inco (CVRD Inco) in 1902 and Falconbridge (Falconbridge Ltd.) in 1928. They became two of the city’s major employers and two of the world's leading producers of nickel. thumb left Copper converter in Sudbury, c. 1920 (File:Sudbury Cuivre 1920.jpg) Through the decades that followed, Sudbury's economy went through boom and bust cycles as world demand for nickel fluctuated. Demand was high during the First World War when Sudbury-mined nickel was used extensively in the manufacturing of artillery in Sheffield, England. It bottomed out when the war ended and then rose again in the mid-1920s as peacetime uses for nickel began to develop. The town was reincorporated as a city in 1930. The city recovered from the Great Depression much more quickly than almost any other city in North America due to increased demand for nickel in the 1930s. Sudbury was the fastest-growing city and one of the wealthiest cities in Canada for most of the decade. Many of the city's social problems in the Great Depression era were not caused by unemployment, but due to the difficulty in keeping up with all of its new infrastructure demands created by rapid growth. Between 1936 and 1941, the city was ordered into receivership by the Ontario Municipal Board. Another economic slowdown affected the city in 1937, but the city's fortunes rose again during the Second World War. The Frood Mine alone accounted for 40 percent of all the nickel used in Allied (Allies of World War II) artillery production during the war. After the end of the war, Sudbury was in a good position to supply nickel to the United States government when it decided to stockpile non-Soviet (Soviet Union) supplies during the Cold War. thumb left Blackened rocks in Sudbury (File:Blackened rocks in Sudbury, Ontario.JPG) Compounded by open coke beds in the early to mid 20th century and logging for fuel, the area suffered a near-total loss of native vegetation. Consequently, the region became blanketed with exposed rocky outcrops permanently stained charcoal black, first by the air pollution from the roasting yards then by the acid rain in a layer which penetrates up to three inches into the once pink-gray granite. The construction of the Inco Superstack in 1972 dispersed sulphuric acid over a much wider area, reducing the acidity of local precipitation and enabling the city to begin an environmental recovery program. In the late 1970s, private and public interests combined to establish a "regreening" effort. Lime (Calcium oxide) was spread over the charred soil by hand and by aircraft. Seeds of wild grasses (Poaceae) and other vegetation were also spread. As of 2010, 9.2 million new trees have been planted in the city.

Greater Sudbury

'''Greater Sudbury''' (2011 census population 160,274) is a city in Ontario, Canada, which was founded following the discovery of nickel ore by Tom Flanagan (Thomas Flanagan (blacksmith)), a Canadian Pacific Railway blacksmith in 1883, when the transcontinental railway was near completion. Greater Sudbury was formed in 2001 by merging the cities and towns of the former Regional Municipality of Sudbury with several previously unincorporated geographic townships. It is the largest city in Northern Ontario by population and the 24th largest metropolitan area in Canada. By land area, it is the largest city in Ontario and the seventh largest municipality by area (List of the 100 largest cities and towns in Canada by area) in Canada. '''Sudbury''', as it is commonly known, is administratively separate and thus not part of any district, county, or regional municipality.

Sudbury has a humid continental climate with warm and often hot summers and long, cold, snowy winters. The population resides in an urban core and many smaller communities scattered around 300 lakes and among hills of rock blackened by historical smelting activity. Sudbury was once a major lumber centre and a world leader in nickel mining. Mining and related industries dominated the economy for much of the 20th century. The two major mining companies which shaped the history of Sudbury were Inco, now Vale (Vale (mining company)), which employed more than 25% of the population by the 1970s, and Falconbridge (Falconbridge Limited), now Glencore Xstrata. Sudbury has since expanded from its resource-based economy to emerge as the major retail, economic, health and educational centre for Northeastern Ontario. Sudbury is also home to a large Franco-Ontarian population that influences its arts and culture.
