A few months ago I got an ICOM IC-R2 receiver (it's smaller than a pack of smokes).
I've been having a great time with it while visiting Toronto's Pearson Intl Airport (YYZ), as well as just listening to pilots checking in with Toronto's arrival controllers from my home (I live 12 nm from YYZ).
Unfortunately I can't find an old Canada Air Pilot (CAP) book that I have, so I have no approch plates to look at to see where the final approach fixes are located around the city.
When I hear a pilot receive instructions to cross over "NOAH" at 4000 ft and 190 knots while on the ILS for rwy 24 R, it sure would be nice to know where NOAH is.
So, before I go out and buy a new $30 CAP with approach charts for every airport in Canada (when I only want Toronto's) I thought I'd ask you guys if there's any way to view Toronto's approach charts over the internet. Is this possible?

Hey guys, sorry if this is a little off-topic, but let me introduce myself. I'm Scott, out in Ajax and have had my membership here FOREVER but hardly ever post - I just lurk! I've been happy to see that you get together what seems like fairly often at YYZ as a group and would be interested in meeting you all at some point; problem is I'd probably be the youngest member of the group at 18. If that's not an issue I'd love to join you guys sometime in the near future!

Captain, you are most welcome to meet up with us! I have a feeling this weekend we're all getting together again. You will not be the youngest member though, AirCanadaMan is only 17, C-GRYK is 19, Slawko is 20. I'm 24 so the age isn't a big deal at all! Keep looking for threads of when we will get together or email one of us.
LY744, you can email them at firstname.lastname@example.org and you can do the transaction that way. Obviously you'll need a credit card to do the order, and you might be more comfortable phoning in with the credit card number. I might be working there on Friday from 10 to about 2 or so, but I'm not sure at this point. In any case good luck with that.
