Ok some interesting news now.

It seems the car manufactures were NOT consulted about dropping Montreal as an F1 race. Ecclestone must have done this on his own.
Now BMW and others are concerned of a North American backlash against the car companies with the result of slower sales. The drivers want Montreal back in and the car companies want Mtl back in.
Legault is out for sure, he wants nothing to do with it now, it's all too rich for his blood anyway now.
Government might get involved but it will want control and a few high penilty clauses against Eccelestone if he tries this stuff again.
