Bernie Ecclestone this week met in London with a potential promoter for a revived Canadian Grand Prix.

We reported on Thursday that talks to restore the event are taking place, and it now emerges that F1's chief executive met with Francois Dumontier about once again promoting a Montreal race.

Dumontier, head of the Stock-Car Montreal company, was involved in the most recent Canadian Grands Prix, until the deal with Ecclestone broke down after last year's race.

Canada's CBC News reports that Dumontier and Ecclestone did not sign a new contract on Tuesday, but their talks were about a race revival as soon as 2010.

A decision is expected next Wednesday.
