There's no question Manitoba's "peak" wasn't entirely them from all accounts, but at the same time, there isn't even any junior A lacrosse left in Manitoba (and little in the way of junior B), so it seems interest is down from where it was. I found the stories very interesting, and also found it interesting the semifinal was in Manitoba each year. What was the rationale for that?
Right now, after Ontario and BC, there's Alberta. But then there's a big drop off. Saskatchewan may be next, I'm encouraged to see Junior B teams in smaller (15,000ish) cities such as Yorkton.
