Start line: Unknown atm (Possible sighting in Mont Tremblant, Quebec)
So the route is

Leg 1: Quebec
Leg 2: Alberta
Leg 3: BC
Leg 4: Alberta
Leg 5: BC
Leg 6: Ontario
Leg 7: Ontario
Leg 8: Ontario/Quebec
Leg 9: ????
Leg 10: Ontario
Leg 11: British Columbia.

I'm fine with a domestic route but this sucks.  Not only is it just four provinces, they are the four most over-used provinces in the show!  Not to mention the constant criss-crossing of the country.  They could have at least done 6 provinces with two legs each.

Seeing there is potentially 8/11 legs in BC and Ontario is the most TAR Canada-esque to have happen by season 8.

I do find it funny it took them about twenty legs in BC before visiting my hometown. It feels like a natural conclusion to the series--the very first leg took place where I went to university for four years, and then one of the final episodes takes place in the town I've lived in for the past 23 years.

Imagine if this season was an all-returnee season? That would've made it funnier for me. Players who went to multiple countries and the majority of the provinces and territories only to get brought back for a season that barely hits four of the thirteen provinces and territories would've been a great way to troll the returnees.
I have been to over 40 countries. I have met Phil Keoghan, Jon Montgomery, Allan Wu, Elise and Bertram in person. I visited Joe & Bill in Hawaii, JK & Mike in Singapore, and Rovilson in Manila. Attended TAR 28 and 29 finales.

Have they ever had legs in the Yukon or NWT?  Seems like the show's well overdue to visit those provinces or territories.  They've done Prince Edward Island, after all, so it's probably high time for the other two.

For that matter, have there ever been legs in Manitoba, Alberta, or Newfoundland?

Yukon's had 3 visits, and NWT 3 (once as the starting line). The third territory, Iqaluit, got a single one in the first season.

The most surprising unvisited place for me after 8 seasons is that they've been to the province called Newfoundland and Labrador a couple times but haven't touched the "Labrador" half of it - Labrador City, Happy Valley-Goose Bay, the Torngat Mountains... It's sparsely populated but there's options

Shades of voting for Canada's Choice under the reasonable assumption that last season would fly abroad only for it to go full-on Family Edition; in other words, TARCAN routing has permanently become a write-off.

It's June 15th. The show can't be more than 3 weeks away to fit with TAR34's September airing, and the social media pages haven't said a word about the season yet, no cast, not even a premiere date.

I thought CTV would put more hype into the 3-year return of their #1 show every summer. Maybe, even they're disappointed in the weakest TAR route ever and don't want to talk about it until they absolutely have to  :funny:

They've got two days left to release something before time's up.

Before time's up for what?  It's their channel; they can air things when they want, with or without warning.  It's at their discretion, but we don't decide their rules.

Yay @ TARCAN's answer to Emon/Jamiul from the second season of Race Across the World turning out to be flops just like the BBCAN9 crossover!
