Courtney's dr husband likely not keen on moving to Ont,



Unless he's not satisfied with his practice in Alberta, can't see him moving, especially if Courtney has no guarantee she will even be curling with Homan after this year.

Wonder just how rigorous the enforcement process is - and when the players have to declare their home places?

We all know how 'rigorous the enforcement process is' - it is virtually non-existent. As long as the player lives somewhere on this planet, it's fine.

It's a shame that Curling Canada refuse to enforce their own rule... actually it's more of a farce.
It really only affects the Brier and Scotties directly (and the respective paths to them, that being the provincial playdowns) - but the fact is that teams are formed specifically to compete in the Brier and Scotties, so it's quite important in the actual forming of the team.

It's not like a team will play with 4 players from 4 different provinces for 7 months (when residency doesn't matter to play tournaments/bonspiels), and then form a team made up only of players from their own province for the month of the Scotties/Brier. No - it's a year-long commitment - at least - and so Curling Canada should enforce their own rule.
The tradition of pitting players from the provinces/territories against each other in the National Championships goes back many years. A team from Saskatchewan should be a team from Saskatchewan, period - no 'imports', and no overlooking their own residency rules by Curling Canada...

there are ridiculous stories all week in the 100 sports of skaters moving from netherlands - one of 15 countries that will medl - to one of the 75 non athletic ccountries to qualify for the olympics - an even win gold -

this is happening in every sport - skating , luge , skiing etc etc

- in canada even coaches - an a lot of them !

as the olympics deteriorates the athletes are getting older -- surprisingly they media does articles on old farts going 5 times over a period of 20 years and still winning -- most of the 100 events are not sports and no one watches them between olympic years - so young people are wising up and are not watching or competing

or posting ... it seems
