    Thanks Sylvia for the updates regarding Wesley and Devon. Such a shame that Devon is still partnerless given that he is JGP eligible! Maybe these two guys need to consider a move...both of their bios say they are not willing to relocate. That doesn't seem to be working for them.

    I was just snooping around on Facebook and Twitter and it would seem that Wesley finally has a partner now as well...Flora LeBlanc from France. She has no pairs experience from what I could tell, but it sounds like she is making the move to Canada.

    Flora has some pair experience. Here is a video with Florian Lejeune. She was training in Caen, but the pair center is closing there. She could not find a tall partner in France.

    It may not be only problem with paperwork. the team may not be ready. While the Russian pairs and dance couples started splitting immediately after worlds, the Canadians were a bit later and that may have set them a bit behind. We don't really know when Lubov-Dylan started skating together. Let's give them thw time they need rather than rushing them and then seeing unfinished product at a competition.

    If she has her release, then they might be able to get on the alternates list, if they decide they're ready closer to GP time.

    Vanessa Grenier and Maxime Deschamps article: http://www.goldenskate.com/2014/07/v...ime-deschamps/
    Excerpt:
    The team is still working with coaches Bruno Marcotte and Richard Gauthier and are also getting a little side help from ice dance coach Sylvie Fullum for detailing.

    “My expectations for them are very high,” Marcotte commented. “Even if their progression last year was extremely fast, we still have to keep in mind that they are a really young team as far as experience goes. So my goals for this season is that they get a chance to represent Canada internationally and for them to make a great impression on the judge so they can start building their reputation on the international level.”
    ...
    “Every element is getting stronger and more consistent,” said Marcotte. “Their programs this year are much more intricate than last year.”

    The skaters, who would like to compete as seniors internationally, are excited about their two new programs, both choreographed by Julie Marcotte (Bruno’s sister), for this season. For the short, they will be skating to a foxtrot remix of Frank Sinatra’s classic Cheek to Cheek.

    “This style hasn’t been done much in pair skating and we also like the fact that it’s very joyful, just like our personalities,” said Grenier.

    For the long, they will be performing to music from the movie Somewhere in Time.
