B.C. Lions implement salary rollbacks for majority of team staff

The B.C. Lions have cut payroll amid the coronavirus pandemic, according to TSN reporter Farhan Lalji.

Owner David Braley runs his teams with a tight budget, but he found a way to keep all his employees with the organization, so far.

The Lions are the latest team to trim salary amid the COVID-19 crisis. So far Winnipeg, Ottawa, Montreal, Calgary have all reduced compensation for team employees.

CFL commissioner Randy Ambrosie stated on April 7, the 2020 CFL season won’t start before the beginning of July. The regular season was scheduled to kick-off on Thursday, June 11. Ambrosie cancelled the CFL combines in March and continues to plan for contingencies.
