Any Canadian GAFers know what's up?
I pre-ordered mine a few weeks ago and the cashier asked if I wanted the hat as well. So it is available to Canadians; I'm not sure if that's still the case - they may have run out - but we did get 'em.
Dead Man Typing: DS chargers aren't too hard to acquire if you lose yours. I saw them available in Future Shop for less than ten bucks, if I recall correctly.
