If the primary concern of the Canadian clubs is the Champions League, then they should either a.) prioritize the Canadian Championship over early-season MLS games, or b.) break away and form their own first division, assuming they can find enough economically viable teams to make that arrangement work.
The bigger thing is....there are 4 Canadian teams!!! How many teams do they need in Champs!!! Hell nobody can even beat Toronto, they don't deserve even the one they get it seems.

Also, a pro should know that you can't grab a back pass. It should be ingrained in his brain.
Always has been since he was on the Gals. Pretty good shot stopper that can do little else and even then he only does it half the year cause he is always injured.
