100 years ago: first radio broadcast

Montreal was the site of the first radio broadcast in Canada a hundred years ago from station XWA, which eventually evolved into CFCF and, like most of the AM band, has since been abandoned. Wikipedia says the early history is obscure, but that XWA’s first licence was connected with a training school on Rodney Street – but even the list of old street names in the appendix to Le rues de Montréal doesn’t list any Rodney Street.
