I sooo wish I had seen Hawtin in the middle of that cornfield outside of Leamington on the night of August 19, 1993.
I heard that people saw God at 6:00 am.

Well, for starters the early transcendance and alien parties were far more important to Toronto than Sickness. Sickness was an anomaly in North America, that's why people drove to the event from places as far away as Flordia.
Secondly, if you are looking/hoping/expecting something similiar to happen in Toronto at any venue.. you're dreaming. It's just ridiculous to measure Sickness and Recovery against TO events of any scale.
There are great events going on in TO, but if you are comparing them against events from 10 years ago, odds are you're living in the past. Bev May wrote a great article called the "Myth of the Purer Past" (or something to that effect) in the Transcendance mag almost a decade ago. In it she discussed one of the key ideologies that has plagued this (these?) musical subcultures - the idea that things were somehow "better" in the past. We are well beyond the point where we should be flaunting baggage from the rave/warehouse party scene..
