No, the Canadian nickel hasn't been solid nickel for decades. It switched to 75-25 copper-nickel in 1982, and then to nickel-plated steel in 2000.

With the exception of the centre of the toonie, all current Canadian coinage is steel coated in nickel with some whizz-bang patented multi-ply plating process to make counterfeiting difficult.

1. All of them AFAIK. Tylenol has different formulas, some with pseudoephedrine and some with phenelyphrine (look at the ingredients list to tell the difference). Benelyn, Advil, Buckley's, and the store generic brands seem to all be pseudoephedrine.

2. Most pharmacies around here also carry straight pseudoephedrine tablets. They're behind the counter, but you just ask for it, no ID needed (I'm not sure if there's any kind of limit on purchases, as I've never needed more than the one pack at a time). Comes in packs of twelve 120mg tablets and is good for about 12 hours. These are my go to decongestant.
