As for the number of legs domestic vs international...let's see who the sponsors are, and if Air Canada is still a major one. If they keep to the same schedule as last year, sponsors were announced in March. This should get interesting.
As for legs in the U.S., there is absolutely no reason why they wouldn't. John Brunton has stated publicly that international legs will highlight a Canadian connection, and the U.S. is right up there with France and the U.K. Maybe even more so. I can see them going to the border states, Boston, Washington D.C. or even New Orleans.
Places in Canada: Edmonton, Saskatoon, Yellowknife (only 1/2 leg in S1), Labrador, the Laurentiens/Saguenay, Trois Rivieres, Gaspe.
I suspect or am hoping for a Maritime start, and a Prairie finish line...anywhere except Ontario, please.

Looks like they are well past the callbacks and into the in person interviews. Just wanted to say because I'm sure there are lots of people that have applied and are checking emails & phone messages every hour still wondering if they have a chance this season.

April 26 according to the TARCan2 Timeline (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,29944.0.html)

Still no news about filming?
You are the last team to arrive.
This is a Philmination leg, so I'm sorry to tell you that you have been Philiminated from the race.

I seem to remember several sightings on or before the 26th which could have been teams traveling to Alberta, but start of race was on 27. No, I have not seen anything, but I have been caught up with BBCan. Last checked about a week ago...maybe I should start checking more often??? LOL

Interesting that yesterday season 2 contestant Nicole Foster tweeted this. They must have done pre-production things a week before.

It was one year ago, from what I remember from being there - they'd be starting any day now...

The distillery can be the pitstop or it can be Jon waiting to do a live stand up. Just a guess.......

If we have no more pics/sighting in Toronto, maybe it was just the starting line + 1 task (like the first two starting line: butterfly task and zipline task) and they are taking a flight, or driving long distance somewhere?

I think he was just there with his wife. It looks like they put a lock on the LOVE lock sign.

Okay folks. I think what we saw yesterday was an exercise - either training new crew or getting the vets warmed up (don't forget they haven't done this in a year). The same thing happened last year, also in the west end of TO. There were two sightings, one claiming to have TARCda crew filming in an office, the other involving a cluebox outside an ice cream parlour (NOT Dairy Queen!). Both were so easily discounted, I didn't even bother to report them here. These happened about 3 to 5 days prior to cast and/or crew spotted on a flight from Toronto to Alberta (still pre-race). Remember last year? All the teams did introductory bios filmed in a hanger at Pearson airport. The "team" spotted yesterday could be "stand-ins" for training, or they could have even filmed generic teams for a teaser commercial. As for the Jon Montgomery sighting - he was at the distillery with his wife. She also tweeted a pic, standing in front of the LOVE lock sign and used the hashtag #countdown. Mike Bickerton has been tweeting about meetings, and I am sure Jon would be a part of those meetings.

Of course, we can't be 100% sure...so keep looking!!! At the very least, they are on their "marks".

As someone pointed out the other day, both previous seasons started filming on a Friday (this coming Friday being the closest match timeline-wise).

I'll definitely be taking a look over social media then :)

CTV just released their first round of summer premiere dates and have promised more dates to come in the next couple of weeks. I am sure they will finish these announcements with the S3 premiere date.

I expect they'll start revealing the identities of the teams around the middle of June. Last year it began on June 18th.

It was a week-long reveal event from June 17 to 20. The season premiered July 8. (yeah, I had to look it up) I think we can anticipate the team announcements about 3 weeks before the premiere date.

Saw the commercial with Jon and all the Canadian icons, and it was immediately ended with BMO being a proud sponsor of The Amazing Race Canada. Seems as if BMO is a major sponsor this season!
