Vanessa comes from Scarborough not Peterborough. I think Violetta and Peter Dack used to live in Peterborough - maybe they still do? They coach at a rink in Thornhill now.Vanessa is Canadian, she is from Peterborough. Violets is Russo-Canadian. Natalie Spooner is Canadian. Yes, most of the skaters we've seen are Canadian. We don't even know the other casts.
I personally love the international flavour of this show. There are so many great skaters of the past in the world that the world wants to see.
