Australia is one country that we should completely copy when it comes to national programs. They have got it right. They used to be in the same position as us from what i remember (especially when it came to soccer). Gov't got involved, cleaned house and started over and what they have now is something they can be proud of. Sadly Canadian gov't doesn't have its shit together enough or care enough to do anything so get used to it sports fans.
