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.

Even those I'm not soo sure.. I mean with last season's leg in Sault-Ste-Marie, they were this close to the US, and didn't go...

SO where would HEROES start?? Anything in Canada a specifically heroic spot?

US could be Iwo Jima monument/Pearl Harbor/Arlington Cemetary etc...

Sorry, I meant I knew it would be the hero season, but I meant that it will be in the title, this is not just The Amazing Race Canada 6 or just Amazing Race Canada. It think it will be in the design as well, in the intro and everything.

As for heroic spot:

- Terry Fox related (he was born in Winnipeg)
- Anything related to war (Canadian war museum?)
- The New holocaust monument in Ottawa
- Viola Desmond (Black women in Nova Scotia who was asked to change place in a cinema, ala Rosa Park)
- Women's right to vote (Suffragette mouvement in Manitoba, first province to let women vote)
- Sir Frederick Banting : invented insulin (Banting House in London, Ontario)
- Indigenous people related monument

I hate to be the odd man out and ask, but just because the contestants themselves are considered "heroes," does that necessarily mean that the locations as well will be "hero-centric?" Could it just be a normal route, but with heroic teams and challenges?

I think one location to look out for is the Terry Fox Monument, in Thunder Bay!
TB has not be visited yet (I think if they do another Ontario leg this season it's between Thunder Bay/Windsor/London) and it would really be a nice symbol to visit this monument, because Terry Fox is considered as one of the most heroic canadian ever!

Th monument offers a panoramic view of TB and they could catch lots of flight going directly to Toronto, and from there the rest of Canada is open!

Maybe even for the starting line?

I wonder if the casting crew will keep a slot open for an Olympian team?  :cheer:

I think its feasible. If memory serves right, TARC has never had a team of summer Olympians?

Having learned about the filming window for US TAR31 and that the US and Canada versions do share some common crew.

I think it is almost safe to assume we'll probably get another Mid-April to Mid-May filming window for TAR Can 6, so they can finish before the US filming starts.

They always do last week of April (or like first few days of May if it falls in that week), but do you think they may start 1-2 weeks earlier to be done by mid-may?

Usually, TAR Canada films in around mid-April and ends in mid/late-May. There is coincidence between this and TAR 31 filming at the end of May.

Yes Claude there is a coincidence when the crew overlaps.

The gender breakdown will likely be 3 F/F, 2 M/M, and 5 M/F, i.e. last season's with the same-sex team ratios inverted and the co-eds kept the same to maximize the latter's winning potential.

Yeah, I agree!

They usually start on a end-of -the-week timeline, I don't think they will start tomorrow but probably by the end of next week!

My guess is 3 FF/ 4 MF/ 3 MM if they do 10 teams.
If they do 11 teams, I think they will overload MF teams (5) and have even co-ed teams.

I don't think they want another MM team to win. I think it would be more fun to see an FF team or MF team take it so they could overload those types of teams. I could see a season 4 of 2 MM teams come back in play.

Also concur, with the latest possible starting date no more than a fortnight from today.

So we know it's starting today!! :cheer:
It could be anywhere except Toronto (Crew from Toronto posted pics/insta in planes so we know they are flying to the starting line). One flight I saw was around 7 am from Pearson in an Air Canada flight (Options are: Vancouver/Calgary/Montreal/Charlottetown)

My best guess would be an early departure on the West Coast, BC/Yukon. So it would be late enought everywhere in Canada for everybody (Like 9 am in Vancouver is 12 eastern and 13h in the maritimes)

Maybe Victoria or Nanaimo?

We will find out soon  :D

As 10 new teams congregate today at a secret location hosting the official starting line, CTV announced that Season 6 of THE AMAZING RACE CANADA will be comprised of 10 heroic teams featuring Canadian heroes. THE AMAZING RACE CANADA: HEROES EDITION premieres later this year on CTV.
