What are the "destination forms" that United Airlines wants for Canada?

I'm traveling from CA to BC in a couple of weeks on United Airlines. United's online system wants me to upload a scan of my passport. If possible, I'd like to avoid that because I'm sure their system will suffer a data breach at some point. But when I try to get past the prompts to upload my passport, it tells me "You can't get fully Travel Ready before you scan your passport". So … do I have a choice? [more inside]

Your Best Vancouver Travel Recommendations

I am planning a family vacation to Vancouver and I'm hoping to get some advice and recommendations. We are a family of 2 adults and 2 young adults from Pittsburgh and we are open to other options in case Vancouver doesn't fit the bill. We want to go somewhere new, but not too far away, and we like a mix of city and nature. We will be flying from Pittsburgh in August and we are looking for recommendations on alternate cities that might have less expensive airfare. [more inside]

Ravenna : Seattle :: ____ : Vancouver ?

What neighborhoods in Vancouver, BC are "most like" north Seattle neighborhoods (Ravenna, Queen Anne, Ballard, etc)? Talking about access to amenities, "feel", and cost. The north Seattle neighborhoods I mention have single family homes with small yards and townhomes, often within walking distance to at least a few good restaurants and a grocery store and parks/libraries, but only a 15 minute drive to downtown core where a lot of the offices and theater/museums are located.

Vancouver end of December/early January

I'll be meeting a friend from the UK in Vancouver during the last week of December/first week of January. It's their first time to Canada, and I'm not overly familiar with Vancouver. Interests include music, kink, environment, pescatarian diet. They're extroverted and I'm not, so I'd appreciate offerings of unique things to do for NYE. [more inside]
