Ottawa isn't good for conventions.
Two things are incorrect with this statement.
1. "The last year for N2u": N2u has no plans at this moment for this to be our "last year".
2. "Their Masquerade isn't official", This is more a "I'm not sure what you mean by this" statement, as the only OFFICIAL masquerade in Canada is Anime North, its the only one with ICG "Recognition".
N2u, just like G-anime, and many other Canadian anime conventions is following ICG reccomended guidelines. As a matter of fact, as I understand it; our masquerade head received a large book of the ICG guidelines and other wonderful tips for running a masquerade, after our 2nd year, from Kaijugal/Dawn herself, a very active member in the ICG and Anime Norths Masquerade Director.

P.S. if you could please reclarify what you mean and what led you to believe the statement "Our Masquerade is not official" that would be greatly appreciated.
P.P.S. In all honesty, I can remember hearing rumours about ac3's demise after their 2nd year, and thats almost a decade ago now(god i feel old) those proved to be false as ac3 went on for a 3rd and 4th year. I think the community likes to gossip and rumour alot. Rather bemusing to say the least
