It might not be so far fetched once the AtL has teams in the western US in a few years - however, for right now - yeah it's reaching which is why I rated it a 0% percent chance. I never rated return to triple-A either but that is also 0% in my mind.
The only way it would happen would be for 2 or more teams to be willing to subsidize the travel expenses of the clubs as happened when they first tried (and then failed) in the NoL. It is unlikely that even the oil boom in AB will lead any owners to be willing to take on that amount of additional expenses.
The latest news about baseball in western Canada is all about starting its own league:

Kick out the WMBL and there you go.
Well if you added Victoria to Fort Mc, Calgary and Edmonton you'd have a good starting 4. Then Medicine Hat and other smaller ballparks and cities. DOn't know if Victoria is out of the running sdince they have a recent deal with the WMBL.
If done right, it could happen. And I do see them moving towards that with other leagues trying to localize. Will it happen is the big question.
