As someone with (a) no driver's license, (b) on a budget, and (c) who wants to buy furniture off of Craigslist, I have very limited options in terms of moving the stuff back to my place. Any ideas? [more inside]
I'll be visiting Toronto next month with my partner and would love to find some interesting walking tours. We're not interested in a general intro tour of the entire city, but instead, tours focusing on a particular area or subject. [more inside]
It's Saturday night. I'm flying to Buffalo tomorrow with plans to cross the border into Canada via car with a group of colleagues on Monday morning. I thought I had both my passport and my Global Entry card with me but it turns out that I only have the Global Entry card and can't get my passport in my hands in time for the planned border crossing. My colleagues will all have their passports. The Customs and Border Patrol website is pretty opaque about whether the Global Entry card will be sufficient for me to enter Canada and return to the U.S. Looking for anyone who can clarify whether the absence of a passport is likely to be a problem in either direction. Specific knowledge of the Peace Park border crossing gets extra points.

My teen daughter and I are doing a quick trip to Vancouver, BC at the end of March as part of spring break. I need advice on where to stay and whether or not we can get around on just public transportation. Difficulty level: She'll get her acceptance or rejection letter to UBC a few days before our trip, so I need to stay somewhere that makes it easy to get to UBC - OR let's us completely avoid campus and just do fun stuff elsewhere.

Can anyone tell me what is happening with Hwy 427 (in Mississauga, Ontario) as it goes northbound past Pearson airport? It seems to have been under construction for a very long time. But nothing seems to have happened for a very long time and it looks like there are three or four completed, unused lanes just sitting there to the west of the over-congested lanes. What is the problem??? What are they waiting for?
Iam turning an senile old age of 30 and decided Vancouver should my getaway. Will be there from the 13th night to 18th morning. How should I celebrate and what should I see/do?

We have a new 2016 Camry (which I think is FWD), and we're driving from Seattle to Vancouver, BC this weekend. Weather Underground is forecasting snow Fri-Mon (0-4 celsius, 33-40 fahrenheit, 1-2 inches/day). Will we need chains? [more inside]

Hello All, My husband and I will be traveling to Montreal for the Christmas Holiday. We will be arriving on Christmas night and leaving New Years Day. As a traveler I tend to want to live as a local when visiting another city/country. And one of my favorite things to do on Christmas Night is drink cheap beers in a dive bar. As such, I was hoping that someone might be able to tell me if there are any good dive bars in Montreal that will be open on Christmas Night that would be good for libations and merriment. We will be staying in the Mile End Neighborhood of Montreal. Thanks and Cheers!

A bit of a long shot but does anyone know what the current wait for a Nexus appointment is at either the Toronto or Montreal locations? I'll be traveling to both cities over Christmas, and was wondering if I applied for Nexus, what is the likelihood of getting an appointment in the week and a half window I have. [more inside]

Thanks to overzealous use of Google Flights, I'm going to Vancouver next week. Which is great, but I'll be there over Thanksgiving. Will there be anything to do or anything open over the holiday? I especially need ideas that are inside in case of bad weather. (My current plans are 1. go to Vancouver Island overnight 2. eat ALL the sushi 3. whale watch 4.walk/bike around aimlessly)
