Most powerful TV stations in Canada

Most viewers in Canada use cable or satellite, but there are still over-the-air transmitters operating in many places.  Here's a list of the ten most powerful.

They're measured in terms of how strong their signal is at 50km from the tower, compared to the minimum signal regarded as providing service.  (35dB VHF-low, 43dB VHF-high, 48dB UHF)
