X-Files, Earth: Final Conflict, Lexx, Stargate: Atlantis,Sanctuary, Battlestar Galactica, Haven, Nikita, Continuum, Primeval: New World. What does this random list of fantasy television have in common? They were all produced in Canada.

Canada is a hot bed for science fiction and fantasy stories – and the television and film industry can’t get enough of us. The American-owned Syfy network keeps investing in Canadian productions like the North American version of Being Human, Haven, Lost Girl and Continuum. I think it is Canada’s identity, or rather identity crisis, that makes us such a hub for these kinds of fantasy and other-realm stories.

Game of Thrones: The Exhibition

Have you ever watched a fantasy show and thought, “I wish I could visit that world”? Well, Game of Thrones fans, now you can visit Westeros. HBO has put together a free exhibition, which is on tour now. The first stop on the Game of Thrones – The Exhibition tour was Toronto, where I had the chance to take part in the fun.

The line-up was a little long, but I can’t really complain when the price of admission is free. Once past the velvet rope, I entered the world of Westeros; and what a world it is! Game of Thrones – The Exhibition features more than 70 artifacts from the show including costumes, props, house banners, weapons and maps from the first two seasons of the series. Eagle-eyed fans will also get a chance to see a few props from the upcoming season starting at the end of March.
