Looks like the investors would pay for it, although they appear to possibly still be looking for those. If there were more Halifax type scenarios unfolding right now it would be easier to see how a 2018 launch can happen.
Q: What’s happening behind the scenes and what’s the timeline on the project?
A: “Behind the scenes right now we’re doing our work to figure out costs and to understand what we can and can’t do and have a budget in place. We are talking to investors, we are trying to pull together the (support) team, then we will look to get more public.
For those who didn't watch today: minute 42 Aleman collects an overhit corner deep in his own end by the sideline, he's double teamed with no teammate in sight so he pulls the ball behind and around to split the opponents bracketing him and forces a foul.
I want a guy like that closer to the opponents goal, not further. It's fine that he gets experience at a different position and more PT as a result, but i want this guy honing his attacking skills week-in and week-out instead of getting lazy, losing his touch or confidence in his skills.
Aleman just started for a Costa Rican powerhouse in a game they won. Before we worry to much about where and when he plays for the CMNT lets all just take a second to enjoy the fact this kid had a big moment in his career. Great to see.

Fast forward a year and MLSE are meeting the Ticats about it. There is evidence that the CSA want the MLS teams involved in this, even if the unnamed source of certain tweeters and podcasters does not. As for "Increadibly, Heavily, Massively Rumoured: Regina, Winnipeg, Calgary", I think you would need to live in one of those cities and be desperate for a team to see it that way at this point. I have only seen anything recent for Calgary (from Shermanator who seemed quite downbeat about Calgary Foothills involvement) and the kick-off is alleged to be just over a year away. Leases need to be negotiated, staff need to be hired, etc
