Hi everyone. I am new to bitcoin and plain and simple, I want to buy about $100 of it. Unfortunately for me, my parents made the grave mistake of giving birth to me in Canada, so there is no way I can deposit any funds in any exchange (currently) to buy bitcoin. My avenues, or "hoops to jump through" as I call them are:

1. Open a US chequing account with US bank using a false US address. Use that to deposit money into a Dwolla account. Then use the Dwolla account to fund an exchange account. Use the exchange account to buy BTC. The reverse for a withdrawl.

2. Open a LR or some other online currency account (in simplified terms) and hope that they accept CAD from a CAD bank bill payment or money transfer with non-raping fees.

3. Spend all day on OTC irc building a reputation and scouting out sellers to buy bitcoin from, because, you know, I have all day to waste just so I can buy some BTC.

Anyone have any ideas? Any other Canadian have it all figured out?

  They are still in BETA mode (i.e., not accepting payments from new accounts), but check out:

 And also see, #bitcoin-cad IRC channel.

Thanks. I've heard of that exchange and have an account there and I've been pacing back and forth waiting for them to open it up! I just logged onto the IRC, lets see what I can get done here.
