In 1989, CBU-FM Vancouver launched its first rebroadcasters: Victoria at 92.1 MHz with 72,000 watts and Sooke/Metchosin at 105.1 MHz with 38 watts.

In 2006, Lister Sinclair died at home in West Vancouver at 85 years of age. He was born in Bombay, India, to Scottish parents, and later obtained degrees from UBC and the University of Toronto. Lister joined the CBC in 1944. Though probably best known as the host of the philosophical IDEAS program on CBC-AM, he was also an Executive Vice President of the CBC for a time, beginning in 1972. He left IDEAS in 1999, but continued to contribute to the program in the years that followed.
