Well then they should give up their Canadian status just be considered American clubs like who Swansea and Cardiff are considered English clubs in Wales.
this is the solution....if they really want to push for it. Though i dont think vancouver or montreal are pushing for this since they only been in CCL due to to Voyagers cup not because they are close to winning the MLS cup.

Yeah, and what would usually happen is an MLS team winning the Canadian Championship tournament, sending them to the CONCACAF League, while the CPL winner would usually go directly to the Champions League (unless a Canadian MLS team won the MLS Cup). Which is backwards.
ohhhh you're saying because they're all mls teams. I see what you mean. So you could send them to concacaf league, unless they win MLS in which case CPL team goes to concacaf league...

Part of a thread. MLSPA President Bob Foose says CCL can proceed under current terms if both sides agree even if new deal is not reached. Not sure if that means only up to the point the regular MLS season starts or what.

It's also confusing because previous tweet in the thread that says the pressure is to make a deal "by end of preseason in late February" but don't we expect the season to begin in mid-February now?
