There won't be fans, what is the risk to the general public?
How was it nonsense? Why are sports above all?
Because I think it's important to maintain some semblance of normalcy during these unprecedented times. These are beloved teams.
I vote liberal but was very happy when Doug Ford said he had no issue with the Jays playing in Toronto. As soon as I heard it would be the Federal Government's call, I knew they would be against it.
And lets be real, it's not because of the risk. It's because they're liberal and don't want to make an exception because someone might think it's unfair that only the most popular sports teams are allowed to play.
Do you realize that a majority of the population doesn't really give a hoot about sports? Nevermind that there wasn't going to be fans at the SkyDome anyway... so fans were free to watch on TV. I don't think home-field advantage matters on TV.
Secondly, it would be unfair for professional sports to be regulated differently than any other businesses. Thankfully the St Louis Cardinals didn't visit Toronto this year.
