What guidebook is the most complete and up to date for sport routes in Ontario, Canada?

Ontario is a pretty big place, what part of Ontario?

For Southern Ontario, there isn't anything particularly current, though there is the ongoing promise of one "real soon now" from http://www.ontarioclimbing.com/. There's also A Sport Climbers Guide to Ontario Limestone by Chris Oates and Marc Bracken -- but it was published in 1997, is hardish to find, and I understand is somewhat out of date.

For north-western Ontario, Thunder Bay Rock 3rd edition by Alex Josepth & Randy Reed is pretty up-to-date.

For areas along the east coast of lake Superior (Batchwana Bay and environs), Superior Exploration, Adventure & Climbing Co. seem to have some guides available: http://www.superior-exploration.ca/index.php/climbing/

For eastern Ontario, there's not a lot of sport: a bit at Kingston Mills and a bit at Calabogie. There's a published guide for Kingston Mills, but I don't know the title off-hand. For Calabogie, I don't know of a published guide, so your best bet is online information. As far as I know, http://www.thecrag.com has the most up-to-date information for Calabogie.

From eastern Ontario, a lot of climbing is done in Quebec: Gatineau Park, Mont Rigaud and Montagne d'Argent are all common sport-oriented destinations from Ottawa.
