I too had a Canadian cab driver rip me off.  I went from Toronto to the airport.  I didn't feel like doing the currenc conversion in my head, at the time I think it was $.75 C = $1 A.  Once we got the airport, asked how much I owed him in American dollars.  "Oh, it's the same."

"Oh, is it?!  You just lost your tip."

Bill_Wick's_Friend: Cab in Vancouver once tried to rip me off. I was on my phone in the back seat and when I looked up it was like "where the fark are you taking me? Why are we on this bridge and not that one (pointing) over there!?"

After a second error I told him to turn off the meter because I wasn't paying any more than what it read. Told him that, yes I was attending a convention downtown but that the pass around my neck didnt mean I was a tourist who he could rip off. "Take me home for what shows on the meter now or I start writing letters to your boss and the provincial taxi licensing agency." He did what I said.

(For those who know the city - going from Sutton Place hotel to Kits Point. Cabbie took Granville bridge and then went up to Broadway where he took a right and then another right turn all the way down Arbutus)

I took a cab from the Vancouver airport to my hotel downtown one time and the cabbie went some crazy way through alleys, parking lots, and business driveways. I thought he was going to rip us off (or kill us), but he ended up getting us there faster and cheaper than the other cabs. Crazy farking cabbies.
