CANADA'S GOLDEN COUPLE ARE PARENTS ~ On Jamie & David's official site, there is a press release to announce the newest member of their family has arrived. Jesse was born on September 30th, 2007 at the Sturgeon Community Hospital and Health Centre in St. Albert, Alberta. Jesse weighed in at 7lbs and was 19" long. David reports that everyone is healthy and very happy; "Jamie and I are beyond thrilled and we’re very excited about the many expected joys of parenthood,” said Pelletier. “Jamie was terrific through the labour and delivery and we’re looking forward to getting home today. We would like to thank family, friends and fans for the many well wishes we have already received.”

Salé and Pelletier will return to the ice in December for Holiday Festival on Ice shows in Kelowna and Cranbrook, BC and again in the spring for 20 shows on this year’s Smucker’s Stars on Ice tour in the U.S. and all 12 shows of Canada’s Stars on Ice taking place April 17-May 7.

The couple has enjoyed a successful amateur career including Gold at the Salt Lake City Olympics but not without controversy. Skating after the Russians, Salé and Pelletier delivered a clean performance which captured the audience and commentators alike. A minor error from Sikharulidze and a clean program from the Canadians had many convinced that Salé and Pelletier were Olympic champions. But when the judges' scores came up, Salé and Pelletier were placed second in the long program. This result spurred an outcry from the North American media and booing from many audience members, but Salé and Pelletier accepted the silver medal. The next day, the French judge Marie-Reine Le Gougne admitted she had been pressured into awarding the long program to the Russians in exchange for a first-place vote for the French ice dancing team. Le Gougne's vote was discarded, leaving the long program a tie. Salé and Pelletier were awarded gold medals in a special ceremony later in the week.
