Nice place to stay outside Vancouver ca

Hi. I'm going to be in Vancouver for a few days next week and would like to find a nice small town to stay for a night in outside of the city. No more than 2 hours drive hopefully. Any recommendations for short hikes or other things we must do would be welcome. Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

To-ronto or not To-ronto? That is (not exactly) the question

Please help me plan my Canada trip! I intend to go in early August for roughly 4 weeks. Will be flying into Vancouver, most likely flying out of Vancouver as well, but that depends on the answer to my question which is essentially: how long should I spend in BC and Alberta? [more inside]

We're going to Montreal this summer! We've been before but not for a decade, what's new and exciting and can't be missed? We like fine dining, secondhand menswear, homosexual bonhomie, tours of engineering projects, and the werid/unusual.

Global Entry for entry/return to/from Canada/US?

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.

Vancouver, BC: Where to stay, getting around: maybe going to UBC edition

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.

Highway 427 northbound near Pearson airport?

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?
