This is a good point.

Also some of those cities that were mentioned I would say are questionable. Speaking about the London possibility I would say no way. There isn't a big stadium here to support it at all and I doubt one gets built because quite frankly London seems to me like it is just a hockey city. You may eventually be able to get a solid fan base in London, but I think it would take a long time and a lot of years in the red to get to that point.

I hope they do expand, but how long is this going to take?
Getting the gov't to pledge financial support towards a stadium must be difficult.

Does any of Quebec City, Halifax, Moncton or Victoria have stadiums big enough to house a team? Any expansion will likely require a prerequisite of funding for a brand new stadium as well as completion of the construction.

I agree that Quebec City and Halifax would be great markets.
Sure but guys like Kurt Warner(sp) were bagging grocerie before getting a shot in St. Louis with the greatest show on turf.

The CFL might have to increase the number of import players but I think expansion is viable.

A CFL team is peanuts to run. Peanuts to buy. We're talking less than 1/10 of an NHL franchise.

They only need 20,000 or so seats. Some expansion to an existing University stadium could work in some cases.

That's how Burton has always sung the anthem. Not a mistake. He has always omitted "God keep our land," singing "O Canada" in its place, followed by the repetition of "we stand on guard" twice.

It is still a mistake to sing the anthem wrong. There is ONE ENGLISH VERSION. Why people think it is okay to change anthems I will never understand.

Hahaha..was a pretty bad butchering of Oh Canada by Mr.Guess Who. Agreed.....The anthem should be sung the way it was written. No room for artistic licence. Personally I could do without anthems at sporting events unless they are international competitions like the World Cup, Olympics etc....
