I would love to see the CFL expand to Halifax. While living in Ontario and a huge Tiger Cat fan, I have friends living in NS and would go there at least once a year for a game - come on Nova Scotians jump on board of the CFL train!

I, for one, have never been to Atlantic Canada. Always been on the bucket list. If CFL goes there, I'll go there for sure.

The $12 million windfall still won't move the needle on Halifax wanting a CFL team. They are still repairing itself from the hurricane

I hear you
What does $12M get you these days
12 houses in the suburbs?
The Atlantic provinces probably lost 1500 houses in that storm

I loved my experience at Touchdown Atlantic! I’d love to head out east more often to watch CFL football! Just need a team.

Just thought I'd add this here show another way having a CFL team can contribute to the region:
