It’s no secret in Quebec. The Covid travel restrictions would seriously hamper or deny entry for many, many teams. The INSPQ and Ministers of Health have serious concerns. They are just opening and like everyone else, they don’t want or can afford to go backwards. The Q is just a small part of the larger picture of the entire Winter festival season. Do they want to subject Q Residents to thousands of visitors from areas that are still under some form of travel restriction? I don’t think so and neither do they.
Announcement coming next by 8/31 but it has already been decided.
