I'm not kidding. Their closest "rival" is, yes, more than two THOUSAND miles away.
Fort McMurray is a bike ride away in comparison.
I think you need to look at a map and should learn how to plan a bike ride.
The closest AHL city to Fort McMurray is actually 1772 miles away in Milwaukee Wi - which would be negligible for flight compared to Abbotsford. Considering that fort McMurray is 4 hours
North of Edmonton
and has a ridiculously long and cold winter season it's not a stretch to imagine that flights could be delayed from time to time during an AHL season as well. FYI Fort McMurray is 1984 miles from Oklahoma city - a difference of 110 miles compared to Abbotsford.
