Airfares: As you will have heard on the news, airlines cancelled many flights this summer due to airport issues. The result is that with more cancelled flights, the remaining seats have become more expensive. It is NOT expected that airfares will fall between now and showtime, and will likely rise further. Booking flights sooner than later is recommended. To save money it is also wise to look at flyflair.com, and flylynx.com as these discount carriers provide fares considerably cheaper than Air Canada or Westjet. There are however fewer choices in flights when using these airlines. For example using Flair during the convention window you can fly return to Montreal for about $650, Toronto for $700 and Kitchener for $600. Lynx out of Toronto can be done for around $600.
