Canadian Football and the Canadian Football League (taken from Wikipedia):
The Canadian Football League (CFL), also known by its French name, Ligue canadienne de football (LCF), is a professional league located entirely in Canada that plays Canadian football. It is considered to be the highest level of play in Canadian football. The league's top trophy, the Grey Cup, (Ever heard of Earl Grey Tea? - Same Person!) was donated by Governor General (of Canada) Earl Grey in 1909 to the team winning the Senior Amateur Football Championship of Canada. Both the trophy and the championship game have become known as the Grey Cup....A recent survey conducted at the University of Lethbridge (in Alberta, Canada) confirmed that the CFL is the second most popular league in Canada, with the following of 19% of the total adult Canadian population compared to 30% for the NHL (National Hockey League)."
Bob Orrick writes about Canadian football versus American football:
The reality is in Canada, the number one sport is the Canadian invented sport of hockey. The second most popular sport is the Canadian invented sport of Canadian Football. Basketball does not dominate sports in Canada. Even though basketball was invented by a Canadian, it is not popular in Canada. It is played recreationally just like in dozens of countries around the world, but is not a major sport. Canada's largest city of Toronto has a professional basketball team that plays in a USA league, but there is only one team in all of Canada. In Canada sport is really all about the Canadian invented games of hockey and Canadian football that are dominant. The comments in this article "Ishockey, basketball og amerikansk fotball dominerer i Canada" were said by someone that doesn't know really know Canadian sports and someone that doesn't know that we actually play Canadian football in Canada, and NOT American football. American football is played in just one country in the world - the USA. How can American football dominate in Canada when there are no American football teams in Canada? And, in addition much of American football's roots actually come from the Canadian game of Canadian football. The Americans have borrowed some Canadian football rules for themselves for American football, learnt basketball from the Canadian who invented it and introduced it into the USA, and we in Canada have also exported hockey to the USA. The reality is that Canada and Canadians, not the USA are the inventors and contributors of these sports. In addition, it is fair to say more people in Canada are into Canadian hockey, curling, and Canadian football that what Pellerud has stated.

In this story the journalist writes "Winnipeg i USA." The city of Winnipeg is actually located in the Province of Manitoba in Canada, NOT in the USA. The original Reuters story does not state it is in the USA, this has been added into the story by Dagavisen.
