Ontario Government Pushing for Return of Sports Teams, Fans at Games

It’s time to bring sports back!

As the vaccine rollout continues in Canada and Ontario specifically, the province is gradually beginning to loosen quarantine orders and allow for the slow re-opening of its cities.

Patio season is back in the city of Toronto and members of the government believe the cities professional sports clubs should soon follow suit.

On Monday morning, Ontario minister Lisa MacLeod announced the approval of a plan to begin bringing Ontario teams, including the Toronto Raptors back to the city, pending federal government approval. While the details of the proposal remain somewhat unclear, the federal government has allowed the Montreal Canadians to travel across the border lines and the Canadiens have resumed playing in front of crowds.

“We believe we have the framework in place to greenlight these leagues,” MacLeod said Monday. “There is a path forward for the Toronto Blue Jays, Toronto Raptors to come back home if the federal government permits.”

MaCleod is also hopeful that it is only a matter of time before fans will be allowed to return to stadiums. A committee led by MacLeod and MLSE’s chief venues and operations officer Nick Eaves have said to propose that stadiums start at 35% attendance once the province moves into Stage 2 next month and 100% capacity upon entering Stage 3.

“I think hope is on the horizon,” MacLeod said.

After over a year in quarantine, Canada’s fight against the coronavirus appears to be coming to an end and the return of sports is coming quick!
