Alouettes and Rough Riders face off for the Grey Cup

It’s also an anniversary of sorts for the event itself.

It’s celebrating a hundred years since the Grey Cup was established, although it is only game number 97, because it wasn’t played from 1916 to 1919 because of the first world war.

It’s the first time Montreal and Saskatchewan have squared off in the event.

According to a Harris-Decima poll 35 per cent of Canadians surveyed said they will likely watch Sunday’s CFL championship game between the Montreal Alouettes and Saskatchewan Roughriders, while 62 per cent said they would not.

The survey also found one in 10 Canadians describe themselves as avid fans of the CFL, while 25 per cent say they are occasional followers of the league.
