The geeks are coming

Montreal’s bid to host the World Science Fiction Convention has beat rival Kansas City, and Montreal will be the host of WorldCon 2009, after delegates in Japan voted overwhelmingly in favour of our dear city.

Just to give you an idea of how big this is, the bid process began in 2004 at the local ConCept convention. That’s a five-year process between idea and implementation. This is the Olympics of science fiction.

The convention will take place in early August, 2009 at the Palais des Congres.

Not everyone’s crazy about coming to Canada, but our novelty just sucks people in. Even Toronto people.
