    The Montreal scene looks like the Notre dame Basilica.

    Notre Dame in Montreal has a different roof. The street looks familiar but can't for the life of me think of it right now.

    The lighthouse is in New Brunswick (East Quoddy Lighthouse on Campobello Island)

    eta....The Basilica to me looks like it's in Ontario, the picture just looks like a street you would find in Ontario. I found this:

    My guess is this is it. St. Peter's Cathedral in London, Ontario.

    Right, it's not a Montreal scene, it's St Peter's Cathedral Basilica in London, just a few blocks north of the arena where Worlds will be held. :)

    I just used Google maps street scene, and moved down the road from the Cathedral you mentioned. The buildings across the street "FARHI" matched the video. I had assumed it was Montreal because they were not represented in the video, considering It is one of the three largest cities in Canada.

    An article from the London Free Press, which basically says there's nothing to worry about. No quotes from VM, only from Skate Canada. (I was surprised, myself, at the lack of coverage for the ice dance free from 4CC, considering the dramatic circumstances for VM; while major newspapers covered the SD results, there was almost nothing for the FD, perhaps a brief mention of winning silver, except in a few smaller publications and from skating sites; I'm going to guess that CBC will have at least a phone interview from VM by the time they finally air 4CC, even if it is again just to say almost nothing on the subject!)

    I know it has been mentioned many times that Tessa needs physio pretty much every day. When they were asked what they needed to "own the podium" for 2010 VM's answer was a physiotherapist at all competitions. Clearly for Tessa -managing her legs is as much a part of their daily routine as any other part of their training. In addition, they have said that when Tessa chose not to have another surgery - they had to change the way they skated to use different muscles. Perhaps this late into the season with the demands of the programs - and plane travel to Asia - which can be very taxing on the skaters as well - there was just more demand on her legs and they didn't manage it as they well as they could have. They mentioned wanting to get home and get things all worked out. Maybe 4CC was a good practice run for the demands of Worlds and they can adjust the attention to her legs accordingly. In addition - there will be far less travel time to London!

    Dont know why, but lfpress links didnt work for me. Could you tell, what they said about Tessa? Just like in the twitter - nothing to worry about?

    The Accordion I think last season and in this season Tessa did more off-ice war-ups, then before OG, where they did nothing.
    I agree, this programs is very difficult, she work too hard on and off ice. My only wish she will be OK and nothing more.
    And in old good times ice dance teams had so many secrets from each other :D
    And now this patnership work on D-W more, then on V-M, because they know all about Tessa conditions and this made them relaxed and confident during competitions.

    I'm not really surprised about the lack of reports about what happened in the FD; it was so unexpected and upsetting. I'm not really expecting an interview before Worlds about it either. If it was Tessa's legs acting up again, I'm expecting them to be really mum about about it.

    Welcome PEZazzz!

    Yeah... I'm a little worried actually. You would think there would be tons of press going into their hometown Worlds, but they're so quiet.

    I hope the lack of press is due to their being in their bubble, given that they wouldn't talk to the media before worlds last year either. I would actually be worried right now if there was a lot of press with them. ;)

    London--they do their off sessions with their trainer on Fridays and Sundays. ;) Moncton is a wee bit far to travel on the weekend for them.

    So I guess they have established these bubbles on all their rinks! Or do they just blow them up each time they get to the rink... just kidding. I love their bubble!

    this will seem arrogrant if i posted it in the "performances that garnered a standing ovation before it finished" thread . . . but add tessa and scott at 2013 worlds. with it being their last worlds, in their hometown, five minutes from tessa's home (15 minutes from scott's) . . . with them having fulfilled their dreams, becoming the most decorated canadian ice dancers in history (among the all-time greats) . . . i expect it to be crazy BEFORE they take their opening pose. as someone on ff said, i'm glad they can skate carmen without music because i doubt they'll be hearing any of it, over the applause, cheers, tears. win, lose or draw, the sense of history will be palatable and the moment incredible.

    v/m fans planning to go there should plan a standing ovation for them before they start their fd (tbh if i were going to worlds i would be standing and cheering throughout their entire performance well until someone tells me to stfu and sit down :lol:) we need to cheer louder than vancouver

    btw did the japanese audience give them a standing o after the stop at 4cc? i know they were cheering and clapping along but i dont remember the rest

    I started that thread and I most definitely EXPECT V/M's London Worlds performance to be added to the list.

    I also watched their Vancouver performance again but unfortunately the camera was panned really up close so you can't see the audience's reaction which was why I didn't add their OGM performance to the list. The original intention was to find vids with the chill-down-the-spine feeling that I get watching those epic performances WITH audience's standing up but an excellent performance is still an excellent performance!

    yeah it was really hard to tell whether the audience was standing up or not in their ogm performances
    im pretty sure people are gonna give me shit for my contribution :lol: because you can hardly tell if the people are giving them a standing o
    but then again the crowd started cheering louder than the music before their cd ended and the announcer did say the audience was on their feet
    so im going to assume thats what happened :lol:

    V/M most certainly did get standing ovations for their Olympic performances but not before they finished. I think it was so tight and we didn't want to jinx ourselves because we've never won gold in ice dance and at that point in the games Canada had a few disappointments and that FD inspires silence. I think Worlds again will be so tight that no one will probably breath until it's over let alone give them a standing ovation before they strike their final pose, unless of course they have a pretty decent lead after the SD(which I doubt) and skate a flawless FD. However, whatever the result I just hope V/M kill it and make the judges really ask themselves how they can deny them a third and final title.

    I doubt their FD inspired that type of applause, but their OD probably did. The level of sustained applause was insane
