I may have missed this, but have we figured out who the host is?

I believed it was Jon Montgomery and a lot of the posters here agreed with that

I would love if it was him, I met him after he won for skeleton, he is such a nice and dynamic guy. I think he would make a good host.

Speculation...

What would The Amazing Race Canada be without a trip to Canada's arctic?

I'm thinking Yellowknife or Whitehorse - both Air Canada destinations.
Or would they make them drive and show off the impressive rough road capabilities of the 2013 Chevrolet Suburban or Avalanche?
The Mackenzie Hwy is spectacular... as is the driving to Whitehorse in the Yukon.

Damn you are good. :hearts:

Looks like they'll be driving Chevrolet Orlandos while in Yellowknife:

Love the report on highway conditions near Yellowknife... hope we see some Bison.

HIGHWAY 3 (Yellowknife Highway)
Drive at a speed appropriate for the road conditions. Be prepared to stop with little or no notice.
Bison can be found along Highway 3 from the Mackenzie River to within 30 km. of Yellowknife. The largest concentration of bison is within 70 kilometres either side of Behchoko. Most bison collisions occur after dusk or in snowy conditions. Drive at a speed appropriate for the weather and road conditions, prepared to stop with little or no notice. Do NOT overdrive your headlights - driving at more than the speed limit, even in good driving conditions, makes it almost certain you will be unable to see a bison with your headlights at night in time to avoid a collision.

Members of the Saskatchewan legislature may have to find somewhere else to park on Monday as filming of the T-V reality show The Amazing Race hits town.
A memo has been issued to politicians letting them know their parking lot will be used all day for the show, which will see contestants compete in a race across Canada.
The American version of the show sees contestants race around the world.

Regina is correct. But to publish that ahead of time in the media is insane. Does no one have any sense left?  :gaah:

Maybe this is why TAR USA won;t visit, because it  would be heavily spoiled.  :groan: :groan:

Katie Uhlaender ‏who is a member of the USA national skeleton team tweeted the following to our believed host Jon Montgomery:

"@jrmonty12 miss your #humour here at the #azcamp!"

Montogomery tweeted back 18hr ago

@KatieU11 not gonna lie, I miss the weather and the training group too!

This indicates he is doing something else atm.

Another tweet in response to tweet#2 from Charles Wlodarczak who is a member of the Canadian skeleton team:

@jrmonty12 at least you can be thankful yyc is now giving some acceptable training weather

yyc = Calgary Airport

This indicates Montgomery was in Calgary around that time (and TarCanada was as well).

Since they are using Air Canada for all their flights, I wonder if they are using the Latin American version of the Amazing Race, where they all take the same flight, but you sign in with your arrival time and then have to wait at the next airport the amount of time you arrived after the first team.

There are no direct flights to Regina from Vancouver tonight.

I have information that is enough to know that one of the tasks in Regina is expected to take place sometime around noon, or thereabouts. I hesitate to divulge where or what until it's happening to avoid completely spoiling Regina any more than it already is. Just trust me.

The teams will have to fly either through Edmonton or Calgary to get to Regina.

If by Edmonton, they have the following options from Vancouver:
17:05   Air Canada   AC244   Edmonton (YEG)  Arrival 19:34
20:10   Air Canada   AC246   Edmonton (YEG)  Arrival 22:40
21:20   Air Canada   AC248   Edmonton (YEG)  Arrival 23:49
23:10   Air Canada   AC252   Edmonton (YEG)  Arrival 01:39

However, no matter which flight they take to Edmonton, they are there over night. Next available flight to Regina:
May-13   Air Canada   8470    Regina     06:05   Arrival 07:43

If by Calgary, the following options are available from Vancouver:
17:00   Air Canada   AC222   Calgary (YYC)  Arrival 19:25
18:00   Air Canada   AC224   Calgary (YYC)  Arrival 20:25
19:30   Air Canada   AC226   Calgary (YYC)  Arrival 21:56
21:30   Air Canada   AC228   Calgary (YYC)  Arrival 23:56
23:10   Air Canada   AC230   Calgary (YYC)  Arrival 01:35

They will miss the 19:00 flight to Regina. Next flight from Calgary to Regina is:
AC8430    Regina   A14    07:00   Arrival 08:25

There is, however, one more distinct possibility that ties into the task that is not expected to be visited until around noon.

From Calgary:
AC8592    Saskatoon   A27    23:30  Arrival 12:35

From Vancouver:
20:45   Air Canada   AC8576   Saskatoon (YXE)   Arrival 23:40

Perfect time to have an Hours of Operation stayover, and to have the teams drive from Saskatoon to Regina (2.5 hours roughly). Just in time to be expected at the task. Though this last bit is complete pure and utter speculation. And possibly wishful thinking on my part that they would be here in Saskatoon. But at least I can eliminate this particular avenue of speculation myself in a few hours. Plus, there are two places I can think of that an hours of operation would make sense. I won't name them here, but they are both immensely important in regards to the history of the area, and the history of Canada. One is just outside Saskatoon, the other is about an hours drive.

As a side note. I kinda went through this with the idea that teams are wanting the FASTEST flights with the shortest layovers possible. It's why I left out any flights arriving in Saskatoon tomorrow morning (beyond direct interference by producers telling teams which flights they cannot take, there is no reason why, if they have to go to Saskatoon first, they won't take one of those two available flights).

That's a relief! That narrows down flights. If not tonight, I at least get a chance to sleep in tomorrow before my drive.
