Can we spec about this episode? 

I hope so as I'm about to do it.

The alcohol in the previews is most likely cider as that region of France is a major cider producer, especially something called calvados, a distilled apple brandy. It's also home to two French national stud farms (horse breeding).

Pit stop Juno Beach perhaps? Be a fitting place! Would love it to be Vimy Ridge, but that's a nearly 350km drive (and we know they're self driving in the previews). Is there any precedent in other versions of having teams drive that far in a single leg?

It looks like you were researching the same things as me today.
I agree with the cider. It looks like Audrey is trying to find a barrel that has aged long enough to take a sample? I am presuming they are testing the temp, because it must stay at a lower temp to ferment.
The two stud farms ...Haras du Pin and Haras Saint Lo: Haras du Pin is considered to be the Versailles for horses. Literally. It was begun by Louis XIV aka "The Sun King", a very important person in the history of Lower Canada (Quebec). It would be a nice connection. However, the barn they are in is more "rural" looking compared to this place, where the stalls are white washed stucco, and ornate woodwork. Definitely the kind of stable a King would have his horses bred. I thought perhaps it was a lesser used stable. However, one screencap has cows in it. Normandy is littered with horse breeders and riding academies and the like. I have not yet looked closely at the other place (I think it has a connection) but it looks much the same. I hope I am wrong...these 2 stables are incredible. One interesting thing is haras du Pin is along the way from Paris to Beny-sur-Mer and Juno Beach.
Juno Beach was the first place that crossed my mind, for obvious reasons. I would be disappointed if it isn't the pit stop. If not there, Caen (which was decimated in WWII) or Bayeaux.

Veteran Jim Parks will greet the teams at Juno Beach. Yes it does say this will be the finish line for this leg. Parks landed there on D-Day.  Everyone better have some Kleenex handy!
The article also explains production's agenda to have Canadian connections on international legs.

Great choice for a Pit Stop, and Greeter. I can tell from that article that they really wanted this leg to be something special to Canada :)

I knew that would attract your attention Maanca! LOL That explains why they released the information ahead of the show...even though the pit stop location and the greeter's connection was a given anyways.

Do we see Ryan & Rob in any of the promos? Hoping that it's just because of their non existing edit, and not them missing their flight to France, resulting in coming in last place.

In the new promo on Facebook, there's a pic of Mont Saint Michel, which is 78 miles southwest of Caen.

I think it's the edit. I am hoping now that Rex and Bob are gone, they will concentrate on on other teams for the humour.
As for Mont Saint Michel...do you mean the silhouette in the France logo? I see that more as a reference to Normandy and it's most prominent landmark. Would they travel that much further westward in this leg? Could it be a starting point for the next leg?

Via that Toronto Star article, interesting this was meant to be the first leg!

A really great interview with Jim Parks on Canada AM. Sorry, I could not find a separate video clip for this. His interview starts at the 01:20:48 mark (7:43 am). He lied about his age...he was 15 and in grade 9. On D-Day, his carrier when down, and he lost his weapon. He still visits schools to speak to children.

Apparently CTV has taken the full episode video down from its site. Does anyone know why?

CTV AND INSIGHT PRODUCTIONS CORRECT CLIP IN TUESDAY NIGHT’S EPISODE, 'LEST WE FORGET'

As the result of an editing error, an archival image of German POW soldiers being led by Allied forces was unintentionally displayed for three seconds alongside clips of Canadian soldiers on Tuesday night’s broadcast of "The Amazing Race Canada," entitled “Lest We Forget”. The image was displayed while Racers read from an inscription at the Bčny-sur-Mer Canadian War Cemetery in Normandy, France.
 
One of our viewers thankfully brought this to our attention and producers have since replaced it with an image of the Bčny-sur-Mer Canadian War Cemetery for all future encore broadcasts of the episode.
 
Reflecting on Canada’s emotional connection to Normandy and one of this country’s most impactful moments in world history – D-Day, and the end of the Second World War – Tuesday’s episode resonated with viewers who flocked to social media to share their messages of support for Canadian soldiers past and present.
 
CTV and Insight Productions apologize if the inadvertent use of this image distracted in any way from what was a heartfelt tribute to the Canadian Forces.
