From Duane Rollins on Reddit:
Ottawa is part of the planning of this CPL and will join it
Edmonton wants to stay in NASL and is pissed about this league
Hamilton Ti-cats are part of this
Expect CFL cities minus Edmonton (What are the chances here that the Edmonton Eskimos or the Oilers buy off FC Edmonton from the Fath brothers?)
Toronto and Vancouver ownerships are the current stumbling block
8 teams expected. 6 solidly committed now. 2017 start expected
Actually, I was expecting for 10 teams (which includes the following cities: Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Regina, Winnipeg, Hamilton, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Quebec City). I'm seriously hoping that Regina and Quebec City are part of this scheme. Now aside from Edmonton, Toronto and Vancouver, who are these 6 committed cities? Anyone has an idea?
