From the info on Reddit, it's possible they are filming at the Robohub on the U Waterloo campus. It's a state of the art robotics research facility.

The whole RFF team has been working on this. Thanks to ALL of you!

Very likely that either the Final Task and/or PitStop for this Leg is at the Knight Newbrough Field at Laurier University Stadium!

Special thanks to jimbitsgalore  who got these great pics for us! :tu

Set UP:





And the HAWK Mascot is inflated and ready to go!  :hfive:

Looks like they have an overnight stop. Two teams appear to be in the lead.

That's it for now....

We believe teams were doing a leg today in the Charlevoix area.

St Joseph-de-la-Rive was possible PitStop.

6 teams remain.  Teams 1 &  3  are confirmed safe.

I'm not sure if there's anything new here, but you can watch the local Thunder Bay TV news coverage of yesterday's leg at https://www.tbnewswatch.com/video/tbt-newshour/video-may-13-2019-amazing-race-canada-films-in-thunder-bay-1444010. Despite the Amazing Race Canada title in the URL, the story runs from about 7:23 to about 9:15 in the broadcast. There is some info from the Thunder Bay Tourism director about how long they've been trying to get the race to come there and also that they were watching the social media buzz yesterday (including us?) .

Concerning Leg 8 Charlevoix.
We believe teams took a train - not ViaRail - that connects between Quebec City (at Chutes Montmorency) and Charlevoix (Malbaie), with stops along the way. Of particular interest is Le Germain Hotel and Spa in Baie-Saint-Paul, which has its own station.

See the speculation thread for more.
