I can't find the post, but was there one about a serial killer caught in Canada, possibly posted 5+ years ago? It was in a really bad part of town/skid row in Toronto or possibly Vancouver. The thread was vivid in that it had a lot comments of people running into the serial killer, and several accepting a ride from him. One of the descriptions was of his car not having a handle on the inside passenger side door, something that stuck with me. [more inside]

The youtube video in this FPP
is not available in my country (Canada) due to copyright restrictions. I've watched it before and would like to watch it again. Can someone either point me to it somewhere else online where it might work (maybe on youtube at another account), or at least tell me the proper title or some info I can use to search myself? Thanks.

Hello Vancouver people, I'll be in Vancouver this Monday evening and wondered if someone is up to go for a beer / food?
Okay, I realize this may ridiculous and silly but... any Toronto MeFites interested in grabbing a drink... Tonight? Say, Annex or Danforth or Roncy, 9:30 or 10ish? I'm bored and it's apparently the saddest day of the year.
I have claimed, on many
occasions that I will be at a meetup, but, as yet, have not showed. I'm not so flaky as to not turn up for one I've organised myself, surely? (I'm not.) Anyone interested?
Vancouver (BC) meetup in the moderately near future? Plenty of time to plan, and initiating it is the only way I can make sure I'm going to be there. Need to commune with fellow geeks. Must be able to speak coherently in presence of female. That said, all welcome! Former Seattleite, so anyone wishing to road-trip with enough notice is encouraged!!
Toronto MeFites, let us have a meeting of our not-so-secret cabal and create Canada's stealth plan for world domination. Or just have an alcohol-enabled bitchfest like usual. Whatever. Does the night of November 11th sound good?

Is anyone here on Consumating
? They're having a Toronto meetup tonight
beginning at 9 to 9:30 at Paupers on Bloor Street (539 Bloor Street West, just east of Bathurst). Sorry for the short notice, but it might be a nice time if you can spare a few hours from your breathless social lives;-)
Any interest in a Toronto meetup Sept 8 or 9 (Fri or Sat)?
Toronto Reminder - Game Show Tonight!!!
Vancouver: Anyone interested in a get together and maybe a little drinky drinky? I'll be in Vancouver BC next week (August 14-17) and know next to nothing about the city, so I'll need to help organizing.
I'm going to be in Halifax from Friday night until Tuesday afternoon. The vast majority of the time will be spent visiting with a couple of friends, but I may be able to squeeze in a couple of hours if anyone would like to hang out?
Toronto meetup... holy cow! [MORE INSIDE]
Toronto meetup June 26th? Beers on some patio sounds nice now that it's getting steamy in the city...
Okay, so I'll be in Vancouver next week, and I want to know who's up for meeting at the keg on granville island, Thursday May 4, 7:30ish pm.
Be there or be hexagonical ;)
Vancouver Meetup? I'm a Canadian living outside the country, and will be visiting Vancouver from May3 to May 5, I'd love to meet fellow members. Anyone game? Any suggestions?
If you answer this question on sneaking into Canada
you could be breaking Canadian law. The poster clearly wants to scam Citizenship and Immigration Canada, since when is this ok?
Toronto meetup reminder
: it's tomorrow night (Saturday, the 25th) at 8 p.m. And I have a proposition for you all — a change of venue. Joelf
is leaving Toronto to move back to Victoria, B.C. next week. His goodbye party is at the Madison
. So, perhaps we could have our meetup there and deign to mingle with his punk ass friends in order to say our farewells.
Pictures from the February 4th meetup in Vancouver:
Vancouver.Metafilter.com/Meetup? Feasability, Logistics... Interest?
2nd chance for Montreal tonight (Fri)? I'm so sorry i missed last night--i haven't been online at all...
Hildegarde, please clarify. Am I, or anyone else in this thread
a "homophobic fuck"?
Oh Canada! Ottawa (1/15-17) and/or Montreal (1/17-20) Meetups?
Sign my petition!
It's generated a big discussion, but I'm thinking that maybe a link to a blog that links to a petition might not be mefi material, especially from someone who has an interest (1
, from the only other thread he's ever participated in) in getting people to go there. If it walks like a self-link and quacks like a self-link...
So, is the Toronto meetup
on Friday night still taking place as planned?
Calgary/Southern Alberta Meet-up? I'm willing to drive up (and/or carpool) to Calgary to do an Alberta Meet-up in the next few weeks. Anyone else interested in doing this? I'm thinking November 25 or December 2nd at a yet unnamed pub.
Photos of the recent Vancouver meetup
I apologize in advance for the utter suckiness of the interface - I uploaded most of these shots to Flickr on Tuesday, and they're still not viewable there. So I have managed to scrape together this patchwork system. HTML artiste, I am not.
reminder! Tomorrow (Monday, October 3rd) at Cafe Bojangles on Marinaside
Any Toronto Mefites going the the film fest? Would a meetup be possible or are the schedules gonna be too fucked? Also, what are you seeing/do you recommend

Last reminder! Toronto meetup
We have space reserved under the name Metafilter.
MeFi Ottawa: 11 members, spousal units and lurkers made it to Pub Italia
last night, where we consumed obscure beers, made boisterous small talk, annoyed other patrons with our flash photography, and crafted inappropriate shoutouts. So far, sboivert's photos
and my photos
have been posted to the MetaFilter pool
on Flickr; aedra's photos, containing many more shoutouts, will be up once I let her have some time in front of this computer.
Ok Ottawa MeFites: Here are the details of the upcoming Meetup:
Date/time: Friday, February 18 @ 7:00 p.m.
Location: Pub Italia
, 434½ Preston St.
Hope everyone can make it!
There has been enough delay and debate! The time is ripe for a MeFi meetup here in Ottawa, Canada! I expect all three of us will have a great time.
When: Tuesday, December 28th, 6ish p.m.
Who: You, me, and a bevy of attrative females
Where: Vancouver. As for the specifics, that's up for discussion.
How about adding some mechanism whereby we Canadian users (and/or further abroad, but I don't know how complex that could get) could join the "Users near this user" crowd? Obviously we would have to provide postal codes, but the mechanism must exist, since it is used on several other site.
As far as integrating it with the US one, well, I don't know if that would be possible, let alone plausible, but it'd be a nifty addition.
