“We are proud to have Canada’s only minor league baseball club as our partners. Considering our relationship with the Canadians front office to the atmosphere and facilities at Scotiabank Field at Nat Bailey Stadium, it was an easy decision to extend our partnership in Vancouver.”

    I think this decision is beneficial for both sides. Though Canadians are only in minor league, they have shown their talent many times. The fact that Blue Jays want to continue their cooperation just proves that.
