My wishlist for this year, the year of Heroes:

Starting Line: Harbourfront Walkway, Nanaimo, BC
First quick task then ferry to Vancouver

Leg 1: Yellowknife, NWT and around (10 teams, non-elimination)
Leg 2: Edmonton, AB (10 to 9)
Leg 3: Tokyo, Japan (9 to 8 )
Leg 4: Kyoto, Japan ( Non-elimination)
Leg 5: Thunder Bay, On (8 to 7)
Leg 6: Chambly & the Richelieu valley, QC (7 to 6)
Leg 7: Amsterdam, Netherlands (6 to 5)
Leg 8: Brussels, Belgium (non-elimination)
Leg 9: Charlottetown and other cities of PEI (5 to 4)
Leg 10: Fredericton, NB (4 to 3)
Leg 11: Finish line in Winnipeg, MB

That would give us 1 extra international leg (4 legs, and 3 countries) and mostly new cities (Edmonton, Charlottetown, Winnipeg and Yellowknife being visited, but it's been a while and they don't do 100% new cities)
New destination: Nanaimo, Thunder Bay, Chambly, Fredericton)

The first leg could be replace by any nice northern destination. And the Quebec leg can be replace by Saguenay or Sherbrooke

AND A ROUTE WITHOUT ONE FULL BC LEG!!! never been seen  :cmaslol

What do yall think?

The Finish Line needs to be domestic and there are too many international legs to be realistic.

The thing with wishlists is it's also a bit of speculation - you can't help it, and to do so I would first take note this is the season of "heroes." Where would they go to accentuate that theme? In my mind, if they were ever going to go to the U.K. the Netherlands, Belgium or Italy, this would be the time. I figure they would reference heroes of World Wars I and/or II. Here's my wishlist:

Leg 1: Vancouver Island startline. Banff, Alberta for the leg.
Leg 2: Dawson City, Yukon
Leg 3: Japan*
Leg 4: Australia*
Leg 5: Québec interior: Chicoutimi; Trois Rivières; or Sherbrooke.
Leg 6: Either Peggy's Cove, N.S. or P.E.I.
Leg 7: Anywhere in the U.K.
Leg 8: Amsterdam
Leg 9: Fredericton, N.B.
Leg 10: Southwest Ontario: Kitchener-Waterloo; London; or Windsor. Alternate locations could be Peterborough or Niagara-on-the-Lake.
Leg 11: Winnipeg, Manitoba

*total wishlist and probably unrealistic!!!

I have further developed my wishlist!!! I think we keep sinorama sponsor, so we have another asia visit, and 2 african legs in morocco for INTL!

Leg-1 Victoria, British Columbia to Banff, Alberta

Leg-2 Banff, Alberta to Yellowknife, Northwest Territories

Leg-3 Yellowknife, Northwest Territories to Tokyo, Japan

Leg-4 Tokyo, Japan to Niagara Falls, Ontario

Leg-5 Niagara Falls, Ontario to Gaspe, Quebec

Leg-6 Gaspe, Quebec to Sherbrooke/Chambly, Quebec

Leg-7 Sherbrooke/Chambly, Quebec to Casablanca, Morocco

Leg-8 Casablanca, Morocco to El Jadida, Morocco

Leg-9 El Jadida, Morocco to Fredericton, New Brunswick

Leg-10 Fredeircton, New Brunswick to Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island

What if, instead of 150 tasks, there's hero tasks?? Like mapping out Terry Fox's marathon, or searching through blocks of ice for ones with pennies, or even a David Suzuki task??? haha

Sadly, for several reasons, I can't see them having a stop in the U.S.
If they wanted to honour Canadian heroes of 9/11, the first place I think of isn't in the U.S. at all. It's Gander, Newfoundland who took in thousands of U.S. travelers when planes were diverted from U.S.

Very good point!
I think it's a good idea to look at 'heroic' destination, but I feel like these locations will be base on the occupation of the teams selected.
What I mean is if they got several auditions of firefighter teams, and they know they will probably pick one, then they may have a challenge or location base on firefighters (the best exemple would have been last year's Fort Mcmurray leg). Maybe another task related to the Mountain Police, famous doctor related task, etc.

As for teams, I feel like we will have:

- Army related team (Air force, or marine force, or whatever)
- Law enforcement
- Teachers
- Medical team (doctor, nurses)
- LOTS of inspirational for the community teams (strong members of minority communities, ala LGBT, racial minorities religious minorities)
- Strong stay at home mom's or single parents

Add to your list a "sports" team. And you know what's starting next month - wink, wink. hahaha.

Good point! It's been 4 years we had Olympians! I guess right after the olympics is the only time they can do this. Also I would keep an eyes for family member of Olympians (like a mother or father with their athlete son/daughter, that would fit with the hero theme)
