Seriously guys, don't worry about me getting internet. That's not far from my dayjob and I understand all the phone protocol weirdnesses.

I'm taking a film stash with me, about 60 rolls for 10 days dedicated to shooting plus a couple weeks of evenings. I don't intend to pay +25% on customs clearance fees (especially when the official duty is 0% plus 5% GST); that sort of bullshit makes a mockery of NAFTA.

What's the standard tipping rate range these days in Canada? Any difference between NS and BC? Are they similar rules for who to tip as the USAnians do, or is it going to be all a bit confusing? Australia is a no-tip country...

That pub-lunch price is about right for Adelaide anyway, especially if you had to add 10% tip.
