Twitter reacts to announcement Ottawa will host 2017 Grey Cup


The official announcement Ottawa would host the 2017 Grey Cup was made at the REDBLACKS game Sunday.

It was not much of a secret – media had reported a week earlier the announcement was very likely. That, and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was seen with the Grey Cup days earlier.

A news release from Ottawa 2017 thanked the REDBLACKS for securing the cup in time for Canada 150 celebrations. It is estimated the Grey Cup will boost Ottawa’s economy by about $100 million.
