The Canadian Formula One Grand Prix speech has been threatened for the second year in a row. If this news is confirmed, will it have an impact on discussions with other sports organizations in Quebec?
“Our season lasted for six months, not just a week. Our health agreements are also very different. Of course, our return to the game will depend on the evolution of the pandemic.”
Alouettes and other CFL teams will take on the heavy responsibility of persuading the leaders of Public Health Canada to allow about 400 American players to enter Canada.
“The good thing for us is that they will not leave Quebec and Canada during our season. They will only travel to other cities to participate in competitions.”
Has the report been published?
The federal budget, which will be submitted on Monday, is eagerly awaited by the Canadian Football League and its team. In particular, they will know whether the business assistance program will continue after June.
The governor of the CFL plans to meet on Tuesday to discuss the next step. Except for accidents, the decision to postpone the training camp will be confirmed. They will start on May 10. According to our information, everything will be formalized on Wednesday or Thursday.
This means that it is difficult to foresee the entire 18-game season, especially in the context of the pandemic in Ontario. To be sure, the CFL will not be able to show games in Ottawa, Hamilton and Toronto in a few months, especially if the audience is required to accompany them.
Towards a bubble?
Can the CFL restart activities according to its own wishes? Unless you are operating in a protected environment, it’s hard to imagine. However, the team strength is not enough to bear the cost of this operation.
