I've been looking for P. imparis with no luck as there was snow on the ground until about a week ago where I am outside of Toronto, but while I was out looking today I found 5 C. novaborecensus queens and one small queen I believe may be Themnothorax longispinosis.

I've also finally seen p. imparis workers above ground.

Pics when my camera isn't broken.

Where is this? I'm also in the GTA, but haven't seen any alates.I have seen plenty of worker, and even super-majors, though.

I'm outside of the GTA near Oshawa and Durham. I have found four parasitic lasius Queens and two days before that I found Four camponotus novaeboracensis Queens. Still haven't seen hide nor hair of P. imparis in my area. The weather in March was nowhere near warm enough for them to fly, and only one day near the end of April was hot enough where I am. I was outside all day that day and saw nothing. Must have missed'em this year.
