Canadians don't just share a similar population concentrated along the Southern extremities of a harsh land but what is simplest to sum up as a Commonwealth upbringing. They even have a East/West divide that extends to sports. In general terms the Canadian passion is ice hockey so acceptance of AFL is not a problem and IMO I see great potential. The question is quality Vs quantity. On the West coast we have the CDJAFL which has produced a senior team after junior teams progressed . In places where juniors have taken up AFL the problem has always been in providing the link. In Sydney it took a while for the high profile Sydney Swans to increase participation rates and then took another period to provide a pathway to senior clubs. If it was only a question of pathways then it'd be a nice problem to have.
