Seems like the Canadian thing to do (politically correct). They will just increases taxes to make up for the loss.:(

Same law in Belgium. They managed to amend the law so they can keep their Grand Prix....

Ridiculous!

Yeah, Canada is in a minority group that is doing this based on the anti-tobaco law, but Europe is also looking into doing this same thing, so we can be expected it from them as well in the near future....

I thought I saw on Globe and Mail.com that we weren't losing the grand prix.

They won't go through it... but if some stupid reason they do... Toronto will try to bring it here... like at Mosport for example, but they would need to do alot of work to the track, to get it up to F1 standards....
