Team greeted at Ottawa airport Monday morning
The team arrived and were greeted by fans at the Ottawa airport at about 11:30 a.m. Monday.
You can watch their arrival by reviewing CBC Ottawa's Facebook live of the event. Please note, the audio doesn't start working until just after the three-minute mark.
One notable absence when the team arrived was quarterback Henry Burris, Sunday's MVP. Burris was spotted at Toronto's Union Station Monday morning, apparently opting for a relaxing train ride back to the capital.
So guess why Hank's not on that plain- suddenly the wait at the station isn't so bad <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/RNation?src=hash">#RNation</a> <a href="https://t.co/wjQA0Qpdj7">pic.twitter.com/wjQA0Qpdj7</a>—@33aboucher
