Convention Tip: The track events will be held at the Toronto Track and Field Centre at York University, 7 miles east of Humber College. York University has an eight-lane rubberized 400-metre Olympic regulation track, two 125-metre sprint runways and seating for 2,500 spectators. And with all that to offer they didn't even return our phone calls for accommodations. You'd think they were stuck up or something.
