TORONTO (July 2, 2014) – In anticipation of the summer’s hottest series, CTV gives THE AMAZING RACE CANADA fans the opportunity to place themselves in the Race and take the most amazing selfies from inside specially-wrapped transit shelters through the end of July. Placed in five different locations throughout Toronto, the custom THE AMAZING RACE CANADA transit shelters are fitted with a clue box, pit stop mat, and full-length photo of host Jon Montgomery. They also feature a mirror positioned next to Jon’s photo, so fans can snap a selfie with him on the pit stop mat. Select transit shelter selfies tweeted tagging @AmazingRaceCDA will be shared on the official THE AMAZING RACE CANADA website at CTV.ca. Fans are encouraged to follow @AmazingRaceCDA and stay tuned to the THE AMAZING RACE CANADA Facebook page for updates.
