It received little coverage in most magazines of the day so I'm just wondering what those poor folks did for wrestling during the off months. The workers off course would find places to wrestle.
Wrestling season the Maritimes ran from the Middle of May to Middle of October.   Normally during the winter months, Hockey dominated the area, and the travelling would of been too hazardous as it was all driving.

During the winter seasons we did receive wrestling from other territories, in the 60's and 70's we had wrestling from Quebec with As de la Lutte, or Grand Prix Wrestling from Quebec, also I believe Stampede Wrestling was broadcast on CBC throughout Canada.

In the 80's we got WWF, also AWA and Stampded on TSN.
