      The Vancouver thing seemed suspicious to me from the beginning when the promoters promised that the city wouldn't end up having to pay for the race (like Montreal did), yet were never able never to say how they would pay for it and never mentioned a corporate sponsor. It sounds like they weren't even able to obtain the permits required for the event.

      ... suppliers and venues were beginning to report non-payment ...
      "we are no longer supporting OSS Group (event producers) ... due to OSS' breach of contract,"
      I doubt anyone in Canada is going to want to have anything to do with anyone trying to promote a Formula E race, at least not in the near future, and certainly not unless they were able to clearly demonstrate they had the all of the required financial backing.
      By the way, I missed the story last summer that Montreal had settled out of court with the promoters of their 2017 Formula E event after canceling the last two years that remained on their contract with the city, electing to pay them $3 million instead of the "between $30 million and $35 million" it would have cost the city to actually have another Formula E race in 2018.
