If you want to make wish lists then let's not do that here.

Intelligent spec about places to go is welcomed.

Do we think that Manitoba, Prince Edward Island and Nunavut will be visited, as they only have 1 visit? Canadians, thoughts?

For international, do we think USA will FINALLY get a visit? Due to them being neighbours lol. What about the UK? Possible if they fly there after going to a city like Halifax or Montreal/Quebec!

Just some weird Australian bloke, who loves reality TV shows...

The thing with these 3 is that beside the main city already visited (Winnipeg, Charlottetown, Iqaluit), there is no other big main attraction (I feel, maybe I'm wrong) it's mostly small cities. But for the classic 'Maritime' leg, I could see them doing a PEI leg with a task or two in Charlottetown, and then moving to another side of the island.

I was so sure that last season's finale would be in Winnipeg (every finish is always a big city, and it's been 3 seasons without Manitoba) so I feel like maybe next season's finale could be Winnipeg.

I think we should be looking in BC, NB, NS, PE, NV, and YK for start lines! A province has never had more than one start!!

We should be looking at places Canada is connected to through war and sports as the season is "heroes"! It would only be fitting to visit where Canada was at war, or won in sports, academics, etc.

That's true! And we just had St-John's, so maybe not the 3 other atlantic provinces. Maybe a BC start? Victoria, ferry to Vancouver and it gives lots of option for a leg in the north, and then International!

Right! BC is probably the most likely for a start! Victoria, Vancouver, Kewlona, the unvisited Kamloops?? A Revelstoke start??

Just to refresh everyone's mind, here is a chart of Startlines/1st Legs and Penultimate/Finish Lines.
(There are some VERY INTERESTING patterns there)

I am the only person shocked Banff hasn't been visited??

I could see a Nahanni National Park visit too as it is Canada's newest national park

What do you see? :P

I see big city finish line
Never the same province for starting line - first leg

also fun fact: All starting line place have been visited in the first season (except the icefield in season 2 but they went to Calgary after so it still works)

Start Lines alternate East/West (but we speculated that before) S6 s/b West-"ish"?
Finish Lines: East/East/West/East/East. S6 s/b West-ish???
Neither start or finish lines in "the Middle" (LOL) meaning Manitoba or Saskatchewan. Neither start or finish lines in the Maritimes.

I predict BC start, New Brunswick first leg, Manitoba penultimate leg, and Alberta finish line.

I'd guess they might try giving Africa a shot again after Kenya plans fell through for season 5. Maybe not Kenya, but somewhere on the continent.

Depending on film dates, Montreal to Casablanca would work! Direct flights! It would be awesome if it was the very first flight run.

I think Europe should get a visit as it hasn't been visited since the very first international season!! Italy, Belgium, Switzerland, Netherlands, UK, Germany, Ireland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Czechia, Spain, Portugal would all be great!

A  west coast starting line could be possible (maybe on Vancouver Island - Victoria/Nanaimo- because it hasn't been visited since season 2) But I think if they start there, then we would have the first leg in the maritimes or up in the north. It's crazy to think that 4 out of 5 first legs have been in BC/Alberta, with only S3 had a first leg east in Toronto (which lets be honest is considered more of Central Canada than east).

As for international legs, I don't know if we will ever get a US leg... I mean they even could have crossed last season in the SSM leg, they were so closed, but they didn't. So unless they do a Alaska/Hawaii leg, I don't think we will get a mainland USA leg. Same with the UK, the connection is so obvious but they haven't visited yet.

If we get Sinorama as a sponsor again next year, they we must expect another 1-2 leg in Asia. They do visits to China, Vietnam, Japan, India, Thailand, Cambodia, Malaysia, Singapore, Laos. I predict Japan! If they go there, they can talk about the camps we put Japanese-Canadian during the second world war. A dark period of our history. Singapore is another good option.

Sinorama also does organizes tours in all of Europe. For the same WW2 connection we could have Belgium and Netherlands, or Italy.

Other possibilities:
- Brazil (If they go to South America) direct flights.
- Mexico
- Morocco (If they want to go to Africa, it's the easiest and maybe safest option)
- Israel (direct flights to Tel Aviv from Toronto)
- Dubai (a TAR Classic)

Organ transplants recipients recruited?

They could fit the profile, but I don't know if doing this article killed their chances...

Amazing Race Seeks Applicants Impacted by Organ Donation
The Amazing Race Canada, which returns for a 6th season in the summer of 2018, is looking for heroes, in particular, every day and unsung heroes who make a difference in their family, community and country. Producers are hoping to tell the story of an individual or team of individuals affected by organ donation / a living kidney transplant, be it as donor, recipient, caregiver or family member. To apply, adventurous, active, energetic teams of two are invited to upload a three-minute video to tell producers why they are ready to win the race together. Visit their website.

Oh sure they are not done yet!
Frankie (from season 4) said on facebook it went something like :

- You send your application
- Then they contact you to answer a written questionnaire
- Then first interview (those pictures and tweets we saw from them going around Canada is for this round, around december-January)
- Second interview around end of January -february (I think in Toronto maybe?)
- Then they decides which teams they want

I think Frankie said they knew one month in advance, around March, that they were cast. So the casting is far from being done!
- Then they decide who they

I've seen spec about a visit to the U.S., and I just can't get behind it. America to Canadians is old news and would not be even remotely "foreign." I have a friend who lives in Toronto and he goes down to Buffalo just to shop! The only exception I could think of is maybe Hawaii or Alaska (especially if its a Hyder, Alaska - Stewart, BC thing, which are within walking distance of each other).

Do you know there is a library in Quebec that straddles the border? You can cross over to the US without actually crossing over to the US. There is a dividing line on the floor...it's hilarious. https://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/the-us-canada-border-runs-through-this-tiny-library This would make for a fun task.
I agree with you about Hawaii, but I'm not too sure about Alaska.

Yeah! Derby Line, Vermont! That would be cool! Or perhaps a visit to the Peace Garden, on the border of Manitoba and North Dakota.

But besides all those, I just canít see visits to New York or Los Angeles or anything.
