Canadian Football League Players' Association President Solomon Elimimian said Friday the CFLPA had a productive meeting with three Members of Parliament.
"Today we had a productive meeting with (MPs) Blake Richards, Kevin Waugh, and Steven Blaney to discuss the CFL in these uncertain times." Elimimian tweeted late Friday night. "As an institution that extends beyond the field and always looks to invest in our communities across the country, we look forward to collaborating."
Richards represents Banff-Aidrie. Waugh represents Saskatoon-Grasswood, and Blaney represents Bellechasse—Les Etchemins—Lévis, Quebec. All three are Conservative.
The Players' Association and the league are working together on their funding request from the federal government. The two sides met earlier in the week and are working to deal with various elements of the CBA and the funding request.
