It is not just their imaginations. Depending upon where in the country they live, Canadians really have been experiencing some of the most extreme weather on record. After 234 mm of rain in Vancouver made March that city’s wettest ever, residents of Atlantic Canada and Manitoba were digging themselves out of some of April’s severest snow storms.

Did the Canadian Football League score a financial touchdown—or fumble its future independence? Hard to say. What is clear is that the U.S.-based National Football League agreed to advance $4 million to the cash-strapped CFL. Under the five-year deal announced last week, the CFL also gets access to the NFL’s marketing expertise and, perhaps, some additional publicity through a proposed game in 1998 between that year’s Grey Cup winner and the champion of the minor World League of American Football, which the NFL owns and operates.
