Per CTV:

OTTAWA -- The federal government has made a move to try to help one of three Canadian markets become a hub city for the National Hockey League's resumption of play.

A federal official told The Canadian Press on Thursday that the government issued an order in council that would allow one of Vancouver, Edmonton or Toronto to serve as one of the NHL's two hub cities during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Marco Mendicino has issued a letter saying it's in the national interest to have a Canadian hub after the Public Health Agency of Canada and the public health authorities in Toronto, Edmonton and Vancouver all gave their approval of the NHL's plan to keep players separate from the general public.

The move would allow the NHL to bypass the traditional 14-day quarantine for anyone entering Canada.
