Amazing Race Canada - Season 3 News and Speculation
« on: September 21, 2014, 09:25:27 PM »
Jon revealed tonight that there will be a season 3!

Casting website is already up: http://www.theamazingracecanadacasting.com/

The deadline is: Nov 24. Last year it was Dec 26.

Quote
When do they film the show?

This season of the Race will be filmed in Spring 2015.

And this is interesting:

Quote
Your Team must be available and willing to participate in the Race for a period of approximately thirty (30) days, on such dates to be determined by Producer in its sole discretion, with approximately twelve other Teams.

They said the same thing last year for the : compete with twelve other teams.  :funny:

I think we have a winning formula this year with 11 teams/12 legs and they will stick with that. I think we will have still a mix of Canada and international legs: We can still have Edmonton, Saskatoon, lots of town in Ontatio (Hamilton, London, Kingston) lots of region in Québec (the north, Saguenay, the islands) + Northwest territories didn't even have a pitstop so maybe one full leg there! Plus I'm expecting a visit to the UK (motherland) and maybe Ireland, USA, Cuba.  :conf:

Totally agree with ur assessment. Not sure about Cuba. Producers are stressing a Canadian connection with International destinations. I expect that to continue for a couple of more seasons until they break free.

The application deadline is November 24th...about one month earlier than last year.
It also says "within Canada and around the world"...I believe last year it read "outside of Canada".

Yea, but since they went outside the country this time, they could have changed it without giving away the international component.

The Irish migration to Canada in the mid-19th C was a HUGE event in Canadian history, so I think the odds are very good.

Just to add Irish news dedicated a week to that recently as Canada granted 14000 more visas a year to Irish people!

I think Cuba might be a good candidate. From Wikipedia:

Quote from: Foreign Relations of Canada
Canada has maintained consistently cordial relations with Cuba, in spite of considerable pressure from the United States, and the island is also one of the most popular travel destinations for Canadian citizens. Canada-Cuba relations can be traced back to the 18th century, when vessels from the Atlantic provinces of Canada traded codfish and beer for rum and sugar. Cuba was the first country in the Caribbean selected by Canada for a diplomatic mission. Official diplomatic relations were established in 1945, when Emile Vaillancourt, a noted writer and historian, was designated Canada's representative in Cuba. Canada and Mexico were the only two countries in the hemisphere to maintain uninterrupted diplomatic relations with Cuba following the Cuban Revolution in 1959.

Maybe matching the contents of that article with Air Canada direct routes could give us ideas for possible international destinations. I think the U.S. could be a highly probable leg. Other candidates IMO could be Sweden, New Zealand, and the UK.

The story so far:

This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

And Canada does send the most tourists to Cuba each year among all countries.

This is the only edition of TAR that I'm confident will survive past 2015. I would love to see a route that visits the Caribbean/Central America and Europe, in addition to the standard legs in Canada. I know that they have to use Air Canada routes, but it's definitely doable.

IMO, TARC is depending on local tourism in their budget. I think we should take note of destinations who are aiming their tourism/marketing at Canadians (especially the ones who suddenly escalate), then consider a "Canadian connection" to those destinations.
IF they stick with Air Canada as the major sponsor (some of the new routes are interesting):

At this point in time I believe production would almost feel...obligated? to go to the UK, since they went to France in season 2. It is also logical, because they could film several legs without returning to Canada, easily hopping between England, Scotland and Ireland or even Wales.

Since production has said international legs will always have some Canadian connection, there's 3 that come to mind for me:

-Holland, which was liberated by Canada in World War II, so there's a great deal of respect for us there.
-England, kind of a given being a commonwealth country.
-Turks & Caicos, some may not be familiar with this one, but for 20 years there's been interest from both sides about it becoming our Hawaii. I would expect a Caribbean stop to be either there, or as others already mentioned, Cuba.

There's also the unexpected connection with Argentina, in which both countries have made efforts towards native cultural exchage

As long as they don't want to fly, because I don't think Air Canada has any segments that don't either start or end in Canada.  But then, I like more driving - much more dramatic to me since the cost of getting lost can be several hours of lost time.  The airport scenes rarely have anything new in them, and often serve to bunch the teams up, which I don't like.
