I do not go to many conventions, but when you put it that way, being in
Toronto does allow for quite a bit of talent to be present....unfortunately,
just never the Groo Crew.
Funny though, pretty much every convention list for Toronto I have ever seen
has Dale Keown present. I think I even saw him over a decade ago when Pitt
#1 was out, and bought a copy just to have it signed.
I do not think I have even looked at it since.

I feel the same way, my fellow Canadian. I'm over in Calgary, Alberta, and
the largest comic conventions we ever host consist of a couple local comix
creators and a few Japanese anime fans.
This, despite Calgary's comic heritage:
-Todd Mcfarlane (creator of Spawn, co-founder of Image Comics) was born in
Calgary and went to High School here
-John Byrne (involved with X-men and a ton of other Marvel comics) went to
High School and art college in Calgary
-Dale Keown (creator of Pitt, and also a cover artist for many other comics)
is from a town just north of Calgary
We can create the talent, we just can't appreciate it, heh heh.
