Good to see investment in Canadian talent. Should be a high priority.

All 4 of these are good signings. Like the way Breton played in USports. Picton should be able to be the best Canadian receiver that we have.

These are 4 guys with a lot of upside who all need to put in a lot of work to get their games to the next level. It's very good to see them signed now so they know what their working towards, and our training staff can help them get there.
