CFL commissioner Randy Ambrosie to embark on cross Canada road trip

TORONTO — CFL commissioner Randy Ambrosie is hitting the road next month.

The CFL announced Tuesday Ambrosie will travel across Canada to meet with fans in all its markets in February. Ambrosie’s first stop is Thursday in Montreal before heading to Ottawa the following day.

Ambrosie’s road trip will conclude Feb. 23 in Halifax.

“Our fans are very much part of the hierarchy of this league: they make everything we do possible,” Ambrosie said in a statement. “I want to hear what’s on their minds and get their feedback on some of our plans.

“It is really important for us to be accessible, and accountable, to our fans.”

At each stop, Ambrosie will connect with fans in public forums that give them the opportunity to ask questions and have their say.

Ambrosie’s other destinations will include Toronto (Monday) Calgary (Feb. 6) Vancouver (Feb. 8) Regina (Feb. 10) Winnipeg (Feb. 12) Edmonton (Feb. 13) and Hamilton (Feb. 22).
