Not a good leg, but a decent episode.

Karen & Bert are really going to be the light of a season post-Deb.

NOT A GOOD LEG??? Better than Leg-1 and was incredible! I loved it. If u really understood the fires and the connections and devastation u wood find it better! Besides, the tasks were pretty awesome! I liked the rb and 3 EP's untill K&R got all 3 :funny: :funny: :groan:

If you like it then good for you but I don't consider giving three Express Passes at a generic adventure task for a Roadblock or firefighting vs. generic shooting task for the Detour good tasks by any stretch of the imagination. At least the helicopter math Route Info was okay.

Production is clearly having trouble planning legs in Canada. Just leave and go full-international already.

The point of TAR is interacting with foreign locals and overcome their language barrier, do unique tasks that aren't known in their country, and understand every culture you visit. But whatever, the tasks and locations in this TAR seem fine anyway (just so generic), and I like most of the cast however.

But whatever, your opinion is yours. Everything is not perfect.
Whatever.

Going full international is never going to happen for two reasons: they have their niche; and budget. The latter is the major sticking point after the loss of Air Canada as the major sponsor.

However, the point of TAR:Canada is to celebrate everything that is Canadian

In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

They'd pretty much have to do what China did. It started out solely domestic (China Rush), then came back with the separate international franchise it is now. Maybe with producers and a host with a bit more toned-down patriotism. That way, they lose the close-minded niche and are free to advertise to a whole new one.

If CTV would even go for it, of course, since it would then be a complete copy of TAR US, which they also carry.

TAR Australia didn't have to go domestic, why? It is also similar to TAR US.
Whatever.

I loved the moments when each person was pulling their way on the hose during the Pump It detour.

Some racers really need gun safety lessons.

They actually drove more distance on this leg than I thought: 55 miles

Trying to understand how they were getting so lost in a city with only 1 highway out, I mapped the places.

Starting point = Airport
A = Roadblock
B = Detour
C = Heliport
D/E = Helicopter landing/Pit Stop
