NB: In the event that a PSA deems not to be bidding to host in a year they are entitled to, the opportunity to consider bidding will go to the other provinces of the region. Allocation to a province other than the one in rotation table does not result in revision to the set rotation (i.e. should MB not have taken their ‘turn’ to host SW in 2011 and BC hosted as alternate, BC would still get first offer to host in 2012, and MB’s next turn would fall in 2015).
