Best Answer

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have been shuttled back and forth over the years. Prior to the start of the 1987 regular season, the original Montreal Alouettes folded. That caused the Bombers to move to the Eastern Division for the first time.

In 1996, the Baltimore Stallions moved to Montreal, at which time, the Bombers moved back to the Western division.

After the 1996 season, the Ottawa Rough Riders folded, which again caused the Bombers to move to the Eastern division.

In 2002, the Ottawa Renegades came into the league, and once again, the Blue Bombers moved to the Western division.

And finally, at the end of the 2005 season, the Ottawa Renegades suspended operations, and once again, the Blue Bombers moved to the Eastern division.

Completely in the western hemisphere. it has become a matter of convention to refer to the Eastern Hemisphere and the Western Hemisphere. The division is specified by an imaginary line drawn between the North pole and the South pole that passes through Greenwich, England. Everything to the east of that line is the Eastern hemisphere and everything to the west is the Western Hemisphere, and the two hemispheres meet again at a line on exactly the opposite side of the Earth. The US lies west of the line passing through Greenwich.
