Congratulations and thanks to the players and Team Canada team: HOD Christina Tao, and Coaches IM Nikolay Noritsyn, IM Kaiqi Yang who also passed their FIDE Trainer exams to earn the FT title! Also on hand, but too busy and too principled to do anything as an official member of Team Canada was IA Hal Bond, the WYCC Chief Arbiter. 
Thanks to Her Excellency Madame Joanne Frappier, the "Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Canada to Uruguay", who greeted Team Canada before Rd 10.
