All four networks air, with the exception of local advertising and a small amount of local programming, identical schedules throughout Quebec, with the network signals being essentially the output of their Montreal flagships. Local stations affiliated with the networks are located in each of the 10 television markets of Quebec: Montreal, Quebec City, Gatineau–Ottawa, Sherbrooke, Saguenay (Saguenay, Quebec), Trois-Rivières, Rivière-du-Loup, Rimouski, Abitibi-Témiscamingue, and Carleton-sur-Mer (Carleton-sur-Mer, Quebec). *1696 - During King William's War French troops seized the Avalon Peninsula in Newfoundland (Newfoundland and Labrador) and burned the city of St. John's (St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador). *1696 - René Lepage de Ste-Claire founded what will become the city of Rimouski later. He installed all his family in the Lower St.Lawrence. He obtained this Seigneurie from Augustin Rouer de la Cardonnière in exchange of a ground which he had on the Île d'Orléans. *1698 - Louis-Hector de Callière is made governor of New France after the death of Frontenac (Louis Buade de Frontenac) in November. Programming on V's O&O stations outside Montreal and Quebec City Since the rebranding of the TQS network to V, on August 31, 2009, all of V's owned and operated stations (O&O) outside Montreal and Quebec City have dropped all non-network programming and become de facto repeaters of Montreal's V O&O, CFJP-DT. Unlike O&O stations, non-owned affiliates of the V network, such as CFGS-DT in Gatineau, CJPC-TV in Rimouski, CFTF-DT in Rivière-du-Loup and CFVS-DT in Val-d'Or, continue to broadcast local programming. *Gatineau - CFGS-DT (owned by RNC Media) *Rimouski - CJPC-TV (owned by Télé Inter-Rives) *Rivière-du-Loup - CFTF-DT (owned by Télé Inter-Rives) For many years, TVA's schedule was very similar to that of what CTV offered before Baton Broadcasting took over the network (and similar to what Global (Global Television Network) offers today) in that it did not have what could be called a main schedule aside from news. For instance, Pathonic Communications (Réseau Pathonic), which owned the TVA affiliates in Quebec City, Sherbrooke, Trois-Rivières and Rimouski and provided programming to the affiliate in Rivière-du-Loup; offered programming that was radically different from that offered on CFTM. The differences were enough that Sherbrooke's CHLT-TV (CHLT-DT), whose over-the-air signal reaches Montreal, was carried on Montreal cable (cable television) systems. However, CFTM dominated the network to an even greater extent that Toronto's CFTO-TV (CFTO-DT) dominated CTV, contributing as much of 90% of the network's programming. That was not surprising as Montreal has always been the centre of French-language broadcasting in Canada. *Quebec City - CFCM-DT *Rimouski - CFER-TV *Saguenay (Saguenay, Quebec) - CJPM-DT Biography Born in Natashquan (Natashquan, Quebec (municipality)), on the far north shore of the St. Lawrence River in Quebec, he was educated in Rimouski and Quebec City.
