, when Radio-Canada opened a rebroadcaster of CBGAT (CJBR-TV) in the Carleton area. In 1979, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) gave CHAU a mandate to extend TVA service to northern New Brunswick and the Gaspé (Gaspésie–Îles-de-la-Madeleine) as part of an effort to improve French-language television service in those areas. From about 1980 to the change to TVA, CHAU carried programs from both Radio-Canada and TVA. CHAU picks up the TVA signal from

in Quebec are Radio-Canada (Télévision de Radio-Canada), TVA (TVA (TV network)), V (V (TV network)) and Télé-Québec. 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

) 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. The network affiliate in Rivière-du-Loup also has a rebroadcaster in Edmundston, New Brunswick

, 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. *Gatineau - CHOT-DT (RNC Media) *Rivière-du-Loup - CIMT-DT (Télé Inter-Rives) * *Rouyn-Noranda - CFEM-DT (RNC Media) '''Saint-Louis-du-Ha!

largest construction')

. In 1875 the region's largest construction project in history was completed when the federal government's Intercolonial Railway (ICR) opened between Moncton and Campbellton (Campbellton, New Brunswick). The following year it would link Halifax (Halifax Regional Municipality) with Rivière-du-Loup and the Canadian railway network. One of the biggest geographic obstacles presented in the project was the crossing of the Miramichi River. Surveyors deemed the ideal location for bridging to be at the upper reaches of tidewater between Nelson (Nelson, New Brunswick) and Newcastle (Newcastle, New Brunswick), crossing the Southwest Miramichi (Southwest Miramichi River), then a short section of land at Derby, followed by the Northwest Miramichi (Northwest Miramichi River). The combined length of these bridges would be among the largest constructed to date in Canada (surpassed only by the Victoria Bridge (Victoria Bridge, Montreal) in Montreal) and were the first bridges over the Miramichi River, revolutionizing transport in the region. Bolduc was seriously injured in June 1937 in Rivière-du-Loup when her tour company's car was in a head-on collision. She suffered a broken leg, a broken nose and a concussion. She was sent to a hospital in Rimouski for treatment, where doctors discovered a cancerous tumour. She began radiation treatment at the Radium Institute in Montreal, and engaged in practically no musical endeavours at this point, making no stage appearances for a full year. Her insurance company refused to pay for her damages, notably the concussion that caused memory loss and loss of concentration, which prevented her from writing songs. The suit ended badly as Bolduc did not use banks and had no record of her income to prove loss of income. Of her total damages and lost income, Bolduc recovered only $1500. The 1970s also saw the completion of the Pierre Laporte Bridge in Quebec City, connecting the south shore of the Saint Lawrence River to the north. In addition to this, the A-73 was extended to Beauce, the A-20 was extended to Rivière-du-Loup, and the Chomedey Autoroute (A-13), the A-19 and the A-440 were constructed in Laval (Laval, Quebec). Autoroutes were built (two sections of A-440, and A-740) and a few more planned in the Quebec City region, creating a dense web, which led to significant sprawl. During the 1970s, the Parti Québécois came to power, whose platform mandated an expansion of public transportation over the construction of more Autoroutes. Existing Autoroutes were extended (e.g., the A-40 was extended from Trois-Rivières to Quebec City) but no new Autoroutes were built. * Name: ''Autoroute du Souvenir'' (from Rivière-Beaudette (Rivière-Beaudette, Quebec) to Turcot interchange) and ''Autoroute Jean-Lesage'' (from Boucherville to Rivière-du-Loup) (known as the ''Montreal-Toronto Highway'' throughout the West Island) ** Description: Ontario-Quebec border at Rivière-Beaudette (Rivière-Beaudette, Quebec) (continues as Highway 401 (Ontario Highway 401) in Ontario) to Boulevard Gaboury in Mont-Joli * Name: ''Autoroute 85'' (or, unofficially, ''Autoroute du Temiscouata'') ** Description: From Rivière-du-Loup at A-20 to the New Brunswick border south of Degelis (Degelis, Quebec) ** Length: WikiPedia: Rivière-du-Loup
