full international route. I would love to see that instead of Toronto, Calgary and Ontario for a milestone season.

Legally this can't happen under Canadian content law.

Can you explain more please??

Basically, to receive government funding, a TV or movie production must feature a certain percentage of exclusively "Canadian" content. Which in short means a route entirely outside Canada is impossible unless they did it on their own dime.

This law really stifles creativity in a sense, but it protects Canadian productions from being too Americanized.

Thanks! I don't think I knew that!

I donít know why this specifically bothers me, but it bugs me how the route itself tends to criss cross. Why do provinces hold non-consecutive legs? Like, why not have three legs in Ontario (NOTL, Windsor, Toronto) and THEN go to Saguenay? I know itís a very minor thing but it just irks me for some reason. Maybe itís just me.

It's been a thing since TARCAN3 went from BC to AB then back to BC for its last three legs; it's no coincidence that the best routes/seasons avoid this trap, i.e. 1/2/4.

Both Tyler teams making the finale. At this point, you'd be making a mistake if you don't run the race with someone named Tyler.

So today is the finale. They really have cut back to a 10 leg race  :groan:

I don't think we can say for certain it's only 10 legs. We could've missed a leg anywhere or there could've been another KOR leg that ran all in one day that we missed. A lot of possibilities. I don't think we'll know for certain if it's 10 or 11 until it airs.

The only real gap is in between ~ Leg 3-4. Is it possible we missed a fifth BC leg?  :duno:

"Tyler" seems to be the luckiest name in TAR, and that has now extended to Canada.

Considering how both are still in and the name's track record in TARUS history, it was about time for TAR Canada to get a winner named Tyler eh?  :lol:

Assuming the Windsor leg eliminated our 6th placer, there's a decent chance both of them make the Final 3 at this rate.

Very strong chance one of them won as well since that crossword may be the final memory task, called it  :funny:

I'm happy to see Tyler Smith in the finale! Even if I don't watch this season, I'll be rooting for them. To lose so many of his friends at once then go through physical rehabilitation, I can't imagine how the tough the last 5 years have been for him.

It would mean that the last 2 winners have had a sob story unlike the last 2 winners of usa.. I have no problem  with it but there is a section of fans who feel that they can't do tar coz they have no sob stories

Ahhhhh a finale in the Maritimes! Now we're talking! Finally, TAR Canada has delivered something noteworthy about this season!  :funny: :lol:

I agree with this 100%. When the Humboldt Broncos crash occurred, I was an amateur sportsman myself (albeit in a different sport), so the crash hit me hard. This tragedy could of happened to anyone. Go Tyler!

It's tragicomic that Race Across the World did a better job showcasing the Great White North than even TARCAN9, but cheers anyhow to RAtW3.

That's what I was saying to someone earlier. When a showcase of your own country gets shown up by a production from abroad, you've got a problem. RATW3 was fantastic.

After a four-season streak of mediocrity in varying shades, the newest addition to the bottom-tier since TARCAN3 has arrived.

(Merci mon Dieu for Cathie and Tricia!)

Admittedly so, including actual episodes filmed abroad (it almost lends itself to a head-canon whereby Canada's Choice tanked their own game on purpose because they knew that Tokyo and Lima were outside the route's scope).
