I believe Skate Canada deducts about 5% from a Canadian skater's earnings from the prize money they win - that's apparently far less than what the Russian Federation deducts from its figure skaters (which I've read is something like 30%). These numbers may have changed since I last read about them a few years ago, but I believe they are in the general ballpark.

How much less did he pay Johnson than he would have payed a regular coach?
