Science Fiction and Fantasy Events in Toronto, April 2012

This will be my last SF/F Events post.  I started my evens calendar with the idea that, knowing what was happening, I'd attend more events.  But living outside of Toronto, I've found it's too much effort to head downtown for events, so...  I'll keep up the links I used to find events, so anyone interested can do their own research.  And, as always, check the websites to confirm times and locations.
