  2. AH: How can Rugby remain the most popular football code in Canada?

    To preface when I refer to Rugby, I am talking about Rugby Union, and not Rugby League, mainly because outside of British Columbia, Canada played its own form of Rugby which differed from the two. Either way, a type of Rugby Football was played in Canada since at least the 1860s, and was the...
