Flew with #AmazingRaceCanada from Toronto to Mtl today. They ran off our plane like there was a prize involved or something! ;) fun times.
Comments:
I wish I knew! There were four teams. I'm sorry I don't know who is who. But there were a couple of guys.

After watching two The Amazing Race Canada contestants struggle for ten minutes to hail a taxi I suggested that it would be quicker (and cheaper) to get an uber.

The love of my life hiked with me for 3 hours up and down Mont Royal only to discover that the Chalet at the top with the spectacular view was roped off from the public because it was being used to make a movie! Still a very sweet time.

Would this make a great finish line???

I want to SAY a HUGE THANK YOU to the WHOLE RFF TEAM and each of you who contributed here!!

You all did an "AMAZING" job tracking this race and I am super proud of you all. 

:ghug:

Many of you spent countless hours tracking down clues, following leads and searching data and interpreting info,
to you :tu from us all for making this such a great season!  It takes a village!

The spoilers are not done, we still have some odds and ends from Saint Andrew and quite a bit from Sydney that I will try to update today.

And blogs and FB posts lag behind so do keep looking!

And stay tuned... TAR US is next up!!   :hearts:

Photo was taken on 19th of May, in Havana, Cuba. .

They were running past Plaza de Armas, and obviously had to get into one of the old cars and get to their next destination

Thanks to the photographer, we may be able to get a video clip!

Ok, so here is what I know abou the Saint John leg of the race:

They started in the uptown core and were then seen at the Saint John City Market, however, they did not go in the market - it was closed.  There was a Hotels.com booth seen right in front of the city market.

There was teams later spotted near Crosby's Molasses Plant

There was a route marker seen at Moosehead Brewery - Canada's oldest independent brewery.  There was a tent with safety vests and goggles sitting outside the door to the bottleshop, where the beer is bottled.

It's possible that there was a detour and it was a choice between Moosehead or Crosbys - both well known in Canada, although this is just speculation on my part.

Possible more information on the Cape Breton Leg..

I have been told by a friend >> Apparently, the Pit Stop was in the Louisbourg area near a cliff and the Men of the Deeps, a singing chorus of ex coal miners was present.  I am hoping to acquire a picture soon.

Found one complaint about the special event/movie shoot/mayonnaise commercial shoot on Mont Royal. Here's the FB post and pic of the sign:

My father said it could have been the nearby Lighthouse at the top of the hill. People that went there from the Disney Cruise couldn't go see it as it was blocked off.

Thanks for following up on that, Peach! For some reason, Twitter wouldn't let me contact him. That information and those pictures are great! More than I was expecting.

Thanks to our new friend, Havana Video!

Additionally... "I saw another couple that day, about an hour later. They were on what looked like the same route, trying to get to the cars."

We have a new Montreal Location!! credit to fossil for the find!!

It appears teams may have had to do a task involving Bagels.

They were seen around the corner from this FAMOUS BAGEL SHOP. Credit to WindsorSue

The Sunday 5/22 leg ( ? #)

ended at Minister's Island--

A protected historic site and former summer home of railroad baron Sir William Van Horne.




http://www.ministersisland.net/.



Or....maybe not?  No activity seen on island and by report, there may have been an "unexpected" cancellation.

So...where was the 5/22 MAT?

And where were teams until 5/24? Hanging at the Algonquin?  ???
