Still in both languages?
Many efforts within the communications department are commendable to present a bilingual event, but there were shortcomings in terms of organization and logistics of this 110e Gray glass. Obviously, no one will see the victory of the Alouettes against the Toronto Argonauts, in the final of the East… Even there, the debate remains: shouldn’t this great celebration of Canadian football always be presented, in every edition, in both languages?
Because there’s a football game… Among the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, pass catcher Dalton Schoen’s absence for the finals looks increasingly likely. Nic Demski also didn’t practice earlier this week, but you can bet he’ll be in uniform.
