Hobby Stores and Flying Fields in Toronto, ON area?
There's a strong possibility that we will be moving from Montreal to Toronto, Ontario by next Spring. I've visited Toronto a few times in the past, but haven't been there in years. For sure, it predates my involvement in R/C, so I have no idea what the hobby is like there.
What are the good hobby shops in Toronto? Not just places with in-depth inventories and reasonable prices, but also places where the new guy is welcome.
I will also look for flying fields, given that I doubt I'll be as lucky as here -- I have a fairly large park/parking area two minutes' walk from my house. The Toronto urban area seems too dense for that. Will I have to drive half an hour out of town to fly?
Any help or suggestion appreciated! Here or PM.

I'm not from Canada, actually a very long way away, but visit there sometimes once a year. The only hobby shop I know of is called Hobby Hobby. They are like 10 min drive from Pearson airport. I walked in for the first time and even though I had to wait to be served because they were buuuuussssssyyyyyy, I had no idea about electrics at the time, I was well taken care of. Everything I needed, the clerk added to my cart. Showed him the plane I was purchasing, and he filled in the rest(esc, motor, battery(s), charger). I was quite pleased.
They also have a website. http://hobbyhobby.com/store/
Sorry can't help re: flying fields or clubs there.
