I hope everyone is safe too - and that the cameras were rolling...

Article on the earthquake.

It will be interesting to see if it makes the show at all.

Hmmm . . . if the tweet that was last posted in the "Live Sightings" thread is to be believed, and teams are on their way to Nunavut, then this is their route:

Fri. May. 27 Quebec, QC to Iqaluit, NU
 Quebec (YQB) to Montreal (YUL)
Air Canada 8701operated by /AIR CANADA EXPRESS - JAZZ
 Economy / Coach Class ( S), Dehavilland Dash 8-300
Depart 6:00am Arrive 6:52am
Duration: 0h 52m

Layover: Montreal (YUL) 0h 53m

 Montreal (YUL) to Ottawa (YOW)
Air Canada 7727operated by /AIR CANADA EXPRESS - JAZZ
 Economy / Coach Class ( S), Dehavilland Dash 8-100
Depart 7:45am Arrive 8:26am
Duration: 0h 41m

Layover: Ottawa (Macdonald-Cartier Intl.) 0h 49m

 Ottawa (YOW) to Iqaluit (YFB)
First Air 860
 Economy / Coach Class ( A), Boeing 737-200
Depart 9:15am Arrive 12:25pm
Duration: 3h 10m

Total trip time: 6h 25m | 2,488 km

Looking at the Wikipedia page of Iqaluit, Nunavut's airport, it looks like Ottawa is the ONLY place (besides Winnipeg seasonally), that has flights to and from Iqaluit in southern Canada. All other flights are from Northern Communities.

I know we've established that Air Canada is the carrier of this race, but would they make an exception for places that can only be visited by flying a tiny airline?

EDIT: Looks like Montreal has a flight to/from Iqaluit as well according to the Wikipedia page, but it isn't showing up in searches for flights.

So, Ottawa is probably the next stop (Saturday?), as it seems they only stayed in the airport on the way North, and there really isn't any other way back.  Too bad, I am downtown today (survived the earthquake :lol3:), but not tomorrow.

We are likely on leg 7/8 for Iqaluit

So after Iqaluit are we look at two legs in Atlantic Canada before a Toronto finish?

There was a strange tweet about a TAR filming in NOLA this morning.

But it turn to be a charity event:

Not many people live in Iqaluit.  2011 census has it at 6699, I don't know how much tourism they get, but it would still be early for most travellers.

They were in Iqaluit so maybe they did have an extended break. Iqaluit is remote after all.

 :lol3: I can't imagine living there. A 3am sunrise and a high of -1. That's just unnecessary.

I think everyone is getting confused because Canada reports temperatures in Celsius. -1 C is about 30 degrees Fahrenheit. So it's just below freezing. I looked up Iqaluit on the Weather Underground http://www.wunderground.com and the high on May 18th was 30 F and the Low was 8 F. The average high for May 18th is 39 F and the average low is 26 F.  It may surprise you that it's that high (it surprised me), but when you have 18 1/2 hours of sunlight and are near the ocean (which is at least around 32 F), it's hard to drop all the way to 0 F.
