I just noticed that the Ottawa Jr. Riders play out of Beckwith, a small town to the west of Ottawa. I took my dog for a walk on a trail out there one day last year and wondered why such a small town had such a nice football field.

Ian Beckles - who played for the Eagles at one point. Went to high school with him.

Montreal Jr Concordes - Denny Ferdinand lived 2 doors down from me when I was growing up.

Hello,

It's been a few months since I have been on the CFL Forums.

I'm glad to here that Quebec will be coming back to CJFL. Anytime you have more development, the better for the future of football in Canada.

The QMJFL is not part of the CJFL, though it serves a similar age group.

If it's not part of the CJFL, will they be allowed to compete in the Canadian Bowl? Do we know why they are not part of it like the OFC, PFC, BCFC, that eventually compete for the Canadian Bowl? It would be weird if there not competing in the annual event.

No, they won't be part of the Canadian Bowl playoff. I believe I read somewhere that they wanted different age ranges than the CJFL was allowing, but I'm not positive on that.

Maybe @idealsheldon or @tony knows more about it.

At one time Junior football was a thing in Quebec, particularly the NDG Maple Leafs. Rivalries with the Ottawa Sooners. These days there is absolutely no mention in the media, you've been my source of information.

Interesting, as the Ottawa Sooners now (or is that "still"?) play in the CJFL, but Ottawa has the Jr Riders in the QMJFL.

This week's results:

South Shore Jr. Packer 33 - Ottawa Junior Riders 8

Raiders Junior de Chateauguay 43 - Les Loups du Nord 24


Standings after Week 4:

  1. South Shore Jr. Packers 3-0

  2. Ottawa Junior Riders 3-1

  3. Raiders Junior de Chateauguay 1-2

  4. Quebec City Battalion 1-2

  5. Les Loups du Nord 0-3
