I would expect him to hire a francophone president regardless of his politics. Public relations in the home market combined with provincial language legislation pretty much guarantee this.
As for players... I'm not as convinced. Constricting his resources in that way would seriously limit his product quality on-field. Businessmen do not become successful by stacking the deck against themselves.
I guess time will tell. I'm hoping for a strong Als franchise to bolster confidence in the league.
Looks to be a good move for the Als and CFL. Deep pocket owner can only be good for the league. PKP! Now let's get that dang 10th team in the East to balance the league out....10 teams, each team plays a home and away (18 games) and off we go!
I don't like the guy or his politics but he did great with Videotron. I was a Videotron customer prior to the acquisition and their service, business practices, and customer support were atrocious. All of this has now been fixed.
I'm not a customer anymore but not because of Quebecor or PKP.
All depends on the replacement of the Olympic Stadium roof (game would have to be delayed if more than 3 centimetres (1.2 in) of snow are predicted 24 hours in advance) ... or a new stadium with a seating capacity, luxury boxes and facilities that are Grey Cup worthy.
