Winnipeg magicians on "The Amazing Race Canada"

Tune in to "The Amazing Race Canada" on Tuesday Aug 14 to see Carey Lauder, Dan Wiebe, and Greg Wood!


From the August 8th article, "Winnipeg streets become the latest venue for The Amazing Race Canada" by Randal King, in The Winnipeg Free Press:

Only in a couple of instances — competitions at the Legion and The Forks — were members of the general public allowed to witness the proceedings. 
The Winnipeg leg was something of a homecoming for unflappable host Jon Montgomery, a former gold medal Olympian skeleton racer born and raised in western Manitoba town of Russell.
