(if I posted this in the wrong place, please forgive, for I am but a noob)

I was curious about the sneak peak of Ep 1 showing Vanessa and Celina (possibly a roadblock, since it's just Celina), and in one shot you could clearly see what looks to be an old railroad trestle, so l did a little research. Thank you Google Maps. They are on the Kettle Valley Railroad Trail, just outside Kelowna. On a hunch I checked out the Myra Canyon Ranch...they have an online guestbook. Here are two entries:

"Our stay with this endlessly hospitable family was a huge pleasure with wonderful food in a beautiful home ! Thank you for providing a great holiday while we were at work on the Bellevue trestle. I'll speak for the six of us in saying that we all look forward to coming for visit again soon ! Amazing Race Canada rigging team, 2.May 2013" (name withheld)

Your place made our 6 days working at the trestles into a work holiday. Thank you for the hospitality, beautiful place, juice and food. Awesome !  Amazing Race Canada rigging team, 2. May 2013 (name withheld)

Notice the reflection on the side of the door...the roofline of the Yacht Club? It would make a great finish line...secluded plus a nice run to the mat.

If you continue on to the next couple of frames, the camera pans to the front of the car, with a view of what is behind it. (to the east and then to the south) It's all parkland. I was thinking more Olympic Island than on the grounds of the RCYC. Of course, that is just for the purpose of this promo pic, and the car could have been moved to the exact area of the finish line.

CTV just aired a very different commercial during Master Chef Aug 7. Jon Montgomery says something to the effect that "for the last 4 weeks, Canada has watched the teams race around Canada. But there was one place they stopped to look around." It was for "Canada's North" ...Nunavut!!!! So is this really a non-leg?

That's not what they were implying.
