    Toby, that's just so shocking! It's like a knife to the game here! How do they expect people to give off their best in such an uncertain and insecure atmosphere?

    Just wondering if some of these people would want to help raise funding, since our government has more important things to do with all the HST...

    Hmmm, they seem to have a bigger project on their hands at the moment. Wonder if I'll still be playing then...

    Anyway, just uploaded two more Canadian matches from the 2011 US GPG for those interested:

    Be sure to check out footage as I might do something crazy soon and take down the entire channel. Grace and I got word today that we were denied funding for this year. We lose $18 000 from Sport Canada and another $6000 from our Provincial government. Also, we lose a year of tuition and a post-secondary institution in Canada. I will blog about the entire case shortly.
    That is crazy! Any relation to the Sudirman result? I guess we'll read in the blog, look fwd to the explanation as your XD seemed to be the only thing going for Badminton Canada ... (and Michelle's WS not to forget )

    Who knows maybe Carlton might be interested to sponsor if they decide to make a push in that area ...

    Just digging into the Sport Canada criteria, I noticed badminton has been scraped altogether (not just presumably the SR(1/2) whatever it means status but also the lesser ones). $18,000 seems to be the max and translating it to these regions you'd probably have had to finish top 8 at worlds or olympics to qualify. Can't seem to find the Sport Canada criteria though ...
    Perhaps badminton failed in the "national training centre" criterium?

    It's a little complicated I guess. $18 000 is the maximum and the criteria for Badminton is published on Badminton Canada's website. Badminton only gets 5 SR cards/year. I will explain it on my blog very shortly, just need to edit it...

    In the meantime, please enjoy some new uploads from the US Open

    XD R32: Ko/Kim [KOR] vs. Hirata/Maeda [JPN]

    I will probably stop posting up links to matches and write a full blog on the US Open shortly, but check my channel every so often as I will keep trying to upload whatever video I decide to film Thanks for everyone's support!

    Blog on my funding situation with Badminton Canada and how the funding system works in Canada. If anything, I'm not looking for pity, but I'd much prefer ideas to help us overcome these situations in the future. At the moment though, the Canadian National Team is tied to Yonex Canada, so other Badminton sponsors are technically out of the question for a solution, sorry :P

    Does anyone have the video of Lin Dan vs Stefan Wojcikiewicz? From the YONEX German Open Grand Prix Gold 2011? or a video of Jan O Jorgensen vs Stefan Wojcikiewicz from the 42nd Portuguese International Championships 2007?

    Good to hear that you and Grace got your funding cards.

    Please don't take down your channel, you have awesome stuff and I watch all your videos. Maybe it's time to try to get you a few more subscribers, haha.

    Rest assured, I will keep my channel up as long as I can, regardless of recent events... Grace and I did NOT receive our funding cards, so it's quite a tough road ahead of us these next few months. Nonetheless, I can only try my best and do what I can. There are many people who don't like the way I do things, but I'm just trying to do what I can and I especially appreciate those who understand what I'm trying to do and are supporting me thoroughly. A big thank you to those people

    Thanks for your support guys! I will upload the match if anyone wants to see it later. We had a magical run of 8 points in a row when the Koreans had match point
