Is it August yet???

“We are on track to receive all of the necessary health and safety approvals, thanks to our tireless medical advisors and staff, and the dedicated government officials who have been working with them,” Ambrosie said. “And while the outlook for fans in the stands varies from province to province, we are confident that process is also on the right track.”

The full 2021 CFL Schedule will be released tomorrow along with each CFL club’s plan for distributing tickets to season ticket holders and, where government restrictions on stadium capacity allow, ticket sales to the general public. CFL training camps are scheduled to begin on July 10.

Despite the vote, I bet Arash Madani will still be rambling on about how the season won't start on time.

It will start on time but Id only pencil in the games after Labour Day on my calendar rather than write them down in ink. Any of the six premiers & their public health officials could prohibit games, even at the last minute, if they fear we're in a fourth wave.

I wonder how long it will take the dummies in Edmonton to realize that the plural of Elk is...get ready for it...Elk. And "Elk" is actually not bad, but "Elks" is silly.

Give your head a shake!! The team consulted a number of linguistics experts and use of Elks is fully acceptable on the same basis as Elk !!

I really do not understand why you think there might be a fourth wave. The majority of people will have 2 doses of the vaccine by fall and 2 doses has been shown to be effective against even the Delta variant. Worrying about a fourth wave is totally unnecessary.

Can we talk about this week’s news?
