Placing the showcase championship game in the nation’s capital on the country’s 150th anniversary makes perfect sense, but does bringing every sporting event possible to Ottawa in 2017? I suspect Ottawa will be saturated and some events will have less than the full interest and support they deserve from of the community.
Ottawa has expressed interest in hosting the 105th Grey Cup in 2017 for some time, most recently in Sept. which preceded disappointment in October that an announcement wasn’t made. Now maybe the media understands it won’t be awarded until bids are submitted.
