Ok so if a train leaves Toronto at 3:04 pm and another leaves Winnipeg at 3:07 pm . . .

In other words, despite your clarifications, it’s all still very confusing. (But then I’m from south of the 48th parallel where we only wish we had so many brilliant teams as to have these considerations.)

Briar/Scottie playoffs... Do we really need page playoffs?

Why not have 3rd-6th from the two groups into a playoff round. Winners go into quarter-finals with 1st/2nd from the two groups - then semis and final in the obvious way.

(And teams that miss out through lack of tiebreakers were 7th in their group, and unlikely to win the event)
