I take offense to the idea that USD is considered normal, especially 
when referencing hotel rates in a Canadian city. $ means dollar, it 
doesn't mean USD as a default and Canadian only if we feel like it.

Are we still an international organization?

I further question that you were unable to get any Montreal hotel to 
take a substantial piece of business for anything less than $270 CDN. 
That seems very usual to me.

Thank you,
