IndyCar playing Trick or Treat upon Oh Canada?

As could Thee Great White North be Frozen out of IndyCar's next year? 

I first read the News via late Monday Night when 'Ol R', aka Robin Miller and Marshall Pruett Broke the News that Arrow McLaren Racing SP, better known as SPAM'. Was planning to announce Patricio Pato' O'Ward and Oliver Askew as it's 2020 Driver line-up as early as this Wednesday.

Naturally this leaves The Mayor 'O Hinchtown, nee James Hinchcliffe without an IndyCar Drive for next year, although I've felt all along, that Hinch' wouldn't be retained at McLaren SP' due to his strong Hondre' ties.

And if All the behind the scenes Machinations are True? For what little I've read, then it seems like McLaren SP' has Hosed Hinchcliffe, by stringing him along Contractually. Whilst Zachery Brown was fishing for O'Ward's services, Uhm, the Best Driver lineup available...

As it puts me in a Wee Pickle, since I chose Pato as my latest Numero Uno IndyCar Driver at the beginning of this year, and I'll be quite happy over his return to what should be an IndyCar Contendah'. But I've got some Agro' with the way the Team's apparently playing Hardball with first, it's longtime engine supplier. And now it's Star Driver.

As Sam Schmidt, Rick Peterson & Company are saying All the right things. The effusive phrase for 5yrs of Service, we won't keep James from signing elsewhere even if he's still a Team Member, Yada-Yada-Yada. Now Quick, Change All of the locks on the Shop Doors, etc - since Hinch' is still one of our "Employees..;" Wink-Wink, Nudge-Nudge...

Whilst Obviously, Snap! Hinch's best landing destination for next year would be a third seat at Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing, albeit the current Scuttlebutt suggests RLLR's asking price is too High for the KuhNuck'. But Seriously? Honda's going to leave Oh Canada's favourite Son off the IndyCar grid in 2020?

And if the rumours are true over SPAM' buying out the likeable Kuhnaidiun', and Honda wants to keep him as Thar Pitchman, then surely something will happen? Even if 'Ol Boobie Ruble's being his Sage Self by saying what I'd deem Code Speak for Hondre' to Show Him the Money! Whilst we All know that Dale Coyne's the scrappiest IndyCar Owner on the grid...
