    I was critical of Rally Turkey from the very beginning, but at least now where Turkey started to attack Rojava the FIA should throw them out of the calendar. Countries like Turkey shouldn't be supported by letting them organize a WRC event.

    Im also disappointed that no driver or team has expressed criticism over the politics in Turkey during the last two years the rally is taking place (or did I miss something?).

    They have expressed criticism, but that is all they can do...
    And for events taking place in countries attacking others...has happened, is happening, will happen in the future.

    The "country" Canada has not shown interest in hosting a WRC... only a small group of dreamers centered on one guy who is a former used car salesman with maybe 7 little 15-17 car rallies under his belt as a driver and years volunteering as "Media Manager' or some inflated title, and volunteer positions organising events that often had maybe 20 or occasionally as many as 30 cars entered...To be fair, he is in a province with many more cows than people and only thanks to oil that it exists....but there is no infastruture that could support a normal rally with 100 cars much less a WRC event....despite millions of miles of fantastic--albeit very VERY fast ----roads..

    the guy is a joke and/or a fraud..not sure which...

    Quebec 20 years ago seemed like it was on the way to having enough organisintional skill and popularity and poltical skill and connections to possibly consider because they had a very well supported amount of events so there was a base....also being Quebec they had the awareness of what a rally should be.....I did the last 4 rallies I ever did in Quebec and at Rally Quebec we started in the iconic Canadian Pacific hotel that sits in the heart of the city..
    Unfortunately with the passage of time the rally scene in Quebec has collapsed and now just one decent rally and some local events with 5-8 cars and dozens of "sideby side" 4 wheel UTVs and its a real pity.
    So pointless to think of a WRC in such circumstances...

    And USA is in worse shape.

    Countries with some sort of dictator running them should not be considerered for international sporting events/championships.

    Ref world championship in Track and Field i Doha, and football world championship at the same place.

    This is a task that FIA and that level of organisations need to consider when awarding. Human rights, the different freedoms as freedom of speach, free press, free religion, equality of people rights and so on.
    Many people were killed in building stadiums in Doha, and people are treated more or less like modern slaves.
    If the international sports federations award such countries large sports events, they more or less support the dictator and lack of human rights in that country.
