From Skate Canada Facebook page:

"Update: After having time to think over her skating career Vanessa Crone has decided that she still has a strong passion for skating and will be searching out another partner. She hopes Paul finds someone to skate with, so he can continue to pursue his passion as well. Skate Canada wishes the best of luck to both Vanessa and Paul"

So it comes down to this...If you think this was an amiable situation, you are mistaken. Something went sour between the two of them, it was already clear to me, after reading Paul's interview by PJ Kwong.
