I will add that card cloning is common enough in Canada that one should 
take precautions, particularly if just using the magnetic strip instead 
of tapping or chip/code.  Don't hand your card to anyone to allow them 
to swipe either, no matter how nicely they offer.

If you are not from Canada and do not speak French but have an English 
accent that could be from another part of Canada, you may get an 
atittude from some service workers.. just explain that you're not from 
Canada and the attitude will clear right up.

It's a wonderful city, just use your head.
