    At least we know that the person is making an effort. The problem with sending someone who was the top Canadian but who didn't actually win the tournament is that the Swiss system is not that great...

    I agree that only those who are listed under Canada in FIDE, or who have proof that they are in the process of changing federations should be allowed to play in national championships. I know of one...

    If no one else bids, I believe that Jina Burn from Fort McMurray could do it and have nice funding for it, but of course that would be quite far for most participants. Speaking of national events,...
