Second. Look at gkelly's link to see the Canadian judge in 1988 actually judged them quite fairly in terms of the other judges. It was the Russian, German, Austrian and Hungarian judges who were much harsher on them. Canadian judge had them ninth in the CD and sixth in both the OSP and FD. They averaged eight in each of the sections so I'd say she was on par with the International judges and in fact more generous than the majority in the later two events.
They left Canada. They may have overtaken the Garrosinos had they stayed but they got the offer from France and took it. But for them I think it was the right decision. They were not going to be better than Wilson and McCall so better going into it as France #1 than Canada #2 or #3. And I think they knew that which is why they went.
