Yes, we've often discussed it and spoken at length about the differences.

I found it really interesting and refreshing that TCON (aka Toronto Trek) posted a breakdown of it's expenditures this year along with a description of each item. I posted the link here: LOOK HERE IF YE DARE (http://www.tcon.icomm.ca/info.html). It's awsome that these cons run completely on the graces and hard work of unpaid volunteers! (That includes staff and concom).

Actually this data was from TT13 in 1997.

Thanks for pointing that out Ninja Sensei.*laughs* Ah. I pulled it from this years website so I didnt' even notice.

I did post it just to give people an idea of how it works and to dispell some myths. :) The application would remain similar even if the year is different.

CN Anime is a COMMERCIAL FOR-PROFIT convention. They are NOT a Fan Run Convention.
Most of the discussion we have is Anime North vs. CN Anime, because one is fan run and the other is not.

CNAX volunteers works hard too!!! XD Especially all those newbies asking what's the difference between sci-fi, comic con, and anime expo. *grr* I've answered that soo many times I've lost count... hahaha
