    Pairs and Dance from World Juniors was on CBC today. Tomorrow they'll show Men and Ladies.

    I think they showed the top 4 dancers and the top 5 pairs. They also had a longish feature on why Canada hardly ever has top women competitors. It was a nice show, considering that I wasn't expecting any coverage at all this year. I was also impressed at the quality of the skating.

    Oh, I love those types of fluff pieces. I could just listen to Tracy and PJ go on and on about the state of ladies skating. I know I will rewatch that fluff piece over any of the performances today.

    What are their thoughts on why Canada so rarely has top ladies?

    Oh me too! So much more interesting than seeing the full performances of our potential future stars like Bell/Sylvester and Bobak/Beharry. And I definitely didn’t care about seeing Poulin/Servant at all…..

    That was very lousy of CBC.ca. It's only 10:42, why are they showing Jason Brown already? We only managed to see 3 of the men in the final flight????

    Is there any way to find out whether the World Jr Men & Ladies program will ever "Become Available", given that the Pairs/Dance show is available?

    Good question! I'd like to know as well. Is there a contact page on the CBC site we can use?
