Hi Edgar:

I hadn't thought of that, I guess I am going to have to do that.

For others, check if you need a visa to enter Canada: 
Please notify me ASAP if you do, even if you aren't sure you can attend 
so I can get the paperwork you need.

Edgar, can you email me your address to my personal email anteaya at 
anteaya dot info so I can work on this for you.
