Hi everyone!  I recently attended a CFI Toronto meetup event.  While there, I learned that James "The Amazing" Randi would have some function in Toronto's CFI.  Apparently, he's supposed to be here in September.  In case you aren't familiar with CFI Toronto, here's a link to the CFI Ontario website.
