We always hear the rumours about a franchise being awarded to cities like Moncton and Halifax, but why has Quebec City never had a team or, as far as I can remember, ever been involved in a legitimate rumour linking the city to a CFL team?
As Canada's 7th largest metropolitan area, ahead of CFL cities like WInnipeg, Hamilton and Regina, with a population of over 765,000 it seems only logical that Quebec City would have a CFL team. Considering the large college/university football following in the city it's clear that the love of Canadian football is there, but what is missing? It can't be a lack of people with money to own the team. Major corporations headquartered or deeply rooted in the area like Quebecor, Desjardins Group and a large group of technological and engineering companies can surely afford a team and, with adequate funding from the government, could easily build a capable stadium as well. Through this the CFL could broaden their audience by reaching Canada's major French-speaking population, while at the same time creating an instant heated rivalry between the two teams in Quebec and, to a lesser extent, with Ottawa.
Adding Quebec City would also even out the Conferences (allowing Winnipeg back to the West) without adding a minor/small market on the east coast like Moncton:
Why hasn't this been done and why isn't it in the process of happening? The league is continuously re-trying markets that have failed at one time or another, but a major city that seems to love football has never had a chance.
