The Grey Cup is returning to Vancouver. The 2014 Grey Cup will be played at B.C. Place, a league source requesting anonymity said Thursday. The announcement is expected to be made official Friday at a news conference in Vancouver.
Toronto is in full-blown Grey Cup mode as the city entertains thousands of CFL fans who have descended on the city ahead of Sunday’s hotly-anticipated match-up between the Toronto Argonauts and the Calgary Stampeders.
They are two boys from Ontario, who grew up about 300 kilometres from each other.
But the distance is galactic between the two acts that will bookend the Grey Cup halftime show Sunday -- grizzled folk rocker Gordon Lightfoot and baby-faced former moptopper Justin Bieber.
Born in Toronto but representing Calgary Southwest in the House of Commons, Prime Minister Stephen Harper says he’ll be happy with whichever team wins the Grey Cup -- even though he’s cheering for the Stampeders.
