    Hi folks,

    I'm Amy. I'm originally from about an hour north of Toronto, but I've been living down east in Halifax, NS for the last 5 years.

    Hello fellow Canadian Nerdfighters!

    So, my name is Kristina, and I currently live in/around the Toronto area (I think I've met some of the other Torontonian members!).
    Originally from Pickering (Eastern GTA) I'm in Ottawa for University. Wondering more specifically when this Toronto Gathering is, if I can I might come.
    YES!  Pickering is my hometown as well!  I wonder if I/one of my sisters knows you... :3

    Hiya!

    I'm from Calgary originally but living in Victoria for the foreseeable future. Any other nerdfighters out here in our lovely if not lively provincial capital?

    Hi, I'm Isabel, and I'm from Oshawa, Ontario, about an hour train ride from Toronto. I haven't been able to make a Toronto Gathering yet, but I hope to make the November one.

  • So many Nova Scotians! Where do you guys all live? We should have a Halifax gathering or something! :)

    Nova Scotians, I've started a separate discussion thread for us to hang out in so we can maybe get a gathering together. There seems to be a fair amount of us in Halifax so far.

    Hi I'm Erin I live in Victoria BC but will be moving to Vancouver for a job in January (if I can find a place to live -> this is proving more challenging than you'd think)

    A thought

    Perhaps make regional discussions? As many people have noted in the past, we live in a very large country and while it's great to have people talking in this general discusion, any meetups ideas could be confined to the places people can actually reach in a reasonable amount of time.

    To this end, you would have "Golden Horseshoe" instead of just Toronto, or "Ottawa Vally" could be another one.

    Hey everybody, geez I didn't think there would be so many of us here in Canada. Anyways I'm originally from Vancouver but I'm in Toronto at York University for school type things at the moment (specifically history) and I'm super excited to see/meet other nerdfighters!

    Hi, I'm Amy and I come from Northern Ontario about 5 hours north of North Bay. I'll be going to Uni in Toronto next year, and I hope that I'll be able to meet some Nerdfighter when I get there. I've never met a Nerdfighter before, and I can't wait to meet one. I feel that we are a huge community but we're scattered around the world and that complicated a lot of things. I hope this site will make us all closer.

    @thepiratequeenkt Tell me about it, I just moved all of eight blocks here in Vancouver into a near perfect space for me, but it took three months of stress to find a place.

    Hello there, I'm Molly! I'm over on Vancouver Island in BC and I sadly know no other nerdfighters (though I'm slowly converting my sister). I do wish there were more here, however the forums are awesome!

    Hello fellow Nerdfighters! I'm Cassie. I'm from THAT London as well but apparently sound like I'm from the UK some days. It's a tendency.
    @Meredith I really want to know what the 20 minutes small town is! I'll probably know it.
    @Cassie: It's called Granton...it has about 300 people and is approximately one and a half city blocks...I think people have literally blinked and missed it

    Hi Cassie and Meredith, and all the other Canadian nerdfighters!  I'm originally from Winnipeg but currently in THAT London (I tend to refer to it as "fake London") for Law School.

    We should organize a London gathering so we don't have to go all the way to Toronto or Waterloo to meet other awesome people.

    !!!! Another Northerner! :D I grew up in Iroquois Falls, and now living in Sudbury :) I've never met any nerdfighters either, we're a rare kind up north I guess.
