I think there was some politics involved with some of the winners...like an injured Bourque winning over Olifioye. With Cavillo losing out, they needed somebody from Montreal to represent the huge Quebec wing, so who better than guy with a French last name? Again with Johnson in Wpg...the Bombers were the first place team, so they may have just picked one player who was instrumental in the team's success.
His name is Bourke, not Bourque, not really French — so I think that quashes that part of your theory.
