Hi Janet -

I am working on Tuesday so can't help there, but I am also attending alone, so I would love to meet up. Are you attending the boat cruise on Thursday?  If not we can meet another time.  Have a great week! 

I am from Vancouver and have attended most of the local Gatecons.  I am thrilled you are all back this year!

Yes you can use US$ in Canada but the exchange rate in shops or restaurants will be atrocious. The fluctuating exchange rates have made it difficult for local businesses to post a competitive rate so the person with US gets ripped off.

We suggest taking cash out of a bank machine once you arrive. For me, a Canadian travelling in the US and other countries, taking cash out of a local bank machine with my debit card has been the best way to avoid the high fees charged by the currency exchange places.
