'Among other notable participants, Richard Wang (U14), from Edmonton, earned his IM title at this year’s Canadian Closed (at age 13) and must be one of our best medal hopes this year. Jason Cao (U12), from Victoria, is of course famous as the U10 World Champion of 2010. And Ashley Tapp (U12 Girls), also from BC, has already become a bit of a chess celebrity through her recent fundraising campaign. '-Annex Chess Team

Ashly Tapp has generated more publicity by hereself than the whole of Canada for the team.

Opinions on the WYCC vary widely in Canada.
'We are well known chess tourists...sending far too many kids to wycc as usual...
btw- i never played a WYCC till I was 16. I played in strong adult tournaments instead until I got to the point where I could actually be competitive on the world stage'-GM Hansen,E from Chesstalk Message Board(CAN)    

Here is a game with Tapp from the CYCC qualifier.
