I already checked, both BA and Hilton only allow cancellations for certain cities/destinations, Vancouver is NOT there.

For a person is not something you can deduct as taxes, IETF is always my own personal pocket.

I really think it is a criminal wrong decision. We are just helping to spread the fear.

    No, the IETF insurance will not cover this.
    1) See what your airline will do - otherwise if you didn't buy 
    insurance, it's your issue to resolve.   I'm in the same boat, but I 
    expected to be.  At the least its a deductible expense on taxes.
    2) The IETF main hotel has a 72 cancellation policy to cancel without 
    cost.  Take advantage of it.  If you didn't register via the IETF 
    portal, it's your issue to resolve.
    The IETF and its management is doing the best it can with conflicting 
    priorities and expects that all of us will take responsibility for our 
    own actions.  I appreciate their service in the face of a very hard 
    I note that you have stated a belief that the IETF is responsible for 
    making you whole not a few times prior - perhaps investing in insurance 
    in the future might be more productive?
