    Ultimately our stadiums here are not football they are hockey arenas. In fact it was the only reason I played Rugby. Football simply was not an option for me where I lived.
    Football shut down as a school sport all across BC as I was growing up. It was replaced with rugby as a cheaper alternative. Only recently did they try and start football programs again but it fail, again due to the costs. And there are multiple hockey rinks and soccer fields around... nothing suitable for football.

    We excel at hockey, but most other sports we have nothing but a token appearance at quality players. That can be expected with our climate and population.
