I am going to BMQ on Jan 12 for 10 weeks and i was wondering what has been removed from BMQ. I tried looking for other threads and could not find any.

The shortened duration isn't necessarily about what's been removed. The course has been condensed. While looking at the new training plans and comparing, for the most part it's simply a lot of down-time that's been cut and/or filled up. (There's still some, of course, but not as many admin periods and such as there used to be.) There have been a few component alterations (such as the 13km ruck), field time has been broken down differently and some locations have changed for certain aspects of the course. However, I wouldn't be concerned about anything other than getting through those 10 weeks.

There is a face book group up for January 14, 2018 BMQ "Canadian Forces Recruits Starting BMQ on January 14th, 2019"

Unfortunately, that thread dates back to 2011, long before formal changes took place and there isn't relevant information related to the poster's question of  "...what's been removed...", since at that point it was all still rumour and/or speculation only.
