BronyCAN in Toronto?

9 posts in this topic

Most of Canada's population lives in Ontario. 2 Million of which live in Toronto so I don't see why a major convention like yourselves don't come to Toronto.

 

 

Sure there's the CANterlot convention but it isn't as official and isnt the same...

Because most of the animation staff and all but one voice actor live in Vancouver.

Yeah but Vancouver sucks. Canada is basically just Ontario and it's whiny brother to the immediate east so I'd love to see a con in Toronto. I've been hoping for a while.

Is there a date for CANterlot anyway?

BronyCAN is exclusive to Vancouver due to DHX being in the city itself and home to many of the VAs. CANterlot from what I heard was well done/amazing on its own.

CANterlot has unfortunately been cancelled for 2014, may return in 2015 depending on whether funding can be raised. There's TROTtawa that may be coming back for a second year, which is attached to G-Anime. Only other confirmed Canadian cons for 2014 I'm aware of are BronyExpo and - naturally - BronyCAN. ;)

So, the question "why doesn't con X move to city Y".  The answer is pretty simple, the con is run by people, put together by people who have to be near where the con is being held in order to do things like scout out the hotel, find vendors for stuff like theatre equipment rentals and the like.   So there has to be a pretty large contingent of staff in the city the con is being held in, or a few very overworked "masters of everything."  The solution to this problem for those who want a con in their own city is to get organized and put together a con, this will likely mean finding people who have run cons in your area or spending a lot of time on the phone with people from other cons.  It can be done, but it has to be done carefully, because running a con is a very complicated matter with thousands of details that you never knew existed.

 

As for "Vancouver sucks" it is the 3rd largest metro area in Canada, as well as being in the third largest province.

(just wanted to voice my opinion sorry)
