At 1:00 yesterday (Monday) we received the following message from CanoeKayak Canada – “There is some unscheduled emergency repair work being done by the City of Montreal to the Olympic Basin and as a result the water levels are extremely low. These low water levels are preventing the city from putting in the race course and the start system. We have been advised that Montreal will not be ready for this weekend.”
Trials have been moved to Dartmouth, Nova Scotia….it’s only 2 days further to drive and an additional $500+ for air travel; never mind all the hotel reservations that were made in the Montreal that have now been cancelled.
Unfortunately the event has to occur this weekend as a team is being selected to travel to World Cup events.
Wonder what today will bring J!
