Hello nerdfighters from/in Canada.

My name is James, and I am currently living in Toronto. I am on an exchange year at Ryerson University, as I am originally from London, UK. 
Yes that London, not Ontario. :)

I attended my first nerdfighter gathering in October 2012, with several other members of the Toronto nerdfighter FB group (http://www.facebook.com/groups/185861858116897/). 
It would be nice to see even more people at the next gathering, currently scheduled for November 2012. 

Introduce yourselves, and hi!

    I'm from an extremely small town about twenty minutes away from THAT London, London Ontario. I would absolutely love to go to a nerdfighter gathering and hopefully this sight can help me find one close! PS Can we please discuss the video in which John explains his difficulties entering our country? I was heartbroken!

    I find it quite sad that we all live in the same country, but so far away from each other...

    Hello, my name is Grace. I'm going to school in Montreal right now, but I spend about half my life in Mississauga (just outside Toronto) since it's my hometown, and I'm happily up for any gatherings if I'm in the area.

    I'm Natalie. I live in Mississauga and spend a lot of time in various locations in Toronto. 

    I'm currently a teacher at Sheridan College teaching web development. Lots of fun.

    @Meredith, I concur. Did anyone else sign the petition(s) that are out there on the interwebs to get him off the list of undesirables? I'm not even sure if it would do anything to help...but hey.

    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.
  • MaddieFieldMaddieField Posts: 3
    Hey, I'm Maddie too! I'm from a few hours north of Toronto, but I go to school in Guelph. I went to the Toronto nerdfighter gathering in September, and I'm planning on making it to the November gathering as well - really looking forward to it!

    @poisonivy - it's at Union Station, at the top of the staircase, November 24th, 1pm. You can see the event here. If it doesn't let you see, you'll have to join the Toronto Nerdfighter group first, here.
    Ladies and gentlemen, do not be alarmed. Please, remain perfectly still
    What you are about to see is real. The performers are not grinning 
    scarecrows sent here to torture and manipulate you.

    Hey all! Burnaby, BC (right next to Vancouver) here.
  • Hi! Fellow Canadian here (well, I'm abroad right now in the UK studying, but Canadian born and raised, and I usually live in Canada)! Name is Rachelia and I go to Trent U and am taking History and Gender Studies. Perhaps when I'm back in Canada I'll try and make it to a Toronto meet up, they sound really fun!

    Looking forward to getting to know you all :)
