A STATEMENT FROM THE CANADIAN FOOTBALL LEAGUE
Thursday, June 15, 2017 — TORONTO (June 15, 2017) -- Today marks Jeffrey L. Orridge’s final day as Commissioner of the Canadian Football League. We thank him for his service and many contributions to our league. Jim Lawson, the Chair of our Board of Governors, will assume the duties of the Commissioner until the search for a permanent successor has been completed. That search is well underway and we look forward to its successful conclusion as we prepare for the start of what we know will be a successful season.
