    Always enjoyed him and wish him the best.

    Doubtful about a rink in Haiti, though. It's way too poor.

    I assume Haiti getting ISU membership is the biggest obstacle, and would require having a skating rink built (as did Puerto Rico). Maxime-Billy said he wants to give back and help develop skating within the country. Best of luck to him!
