Question #1:
Scenario (2): Invest \$1.02(USD) at USD risk-free rate and convert it to CAD at the
end of the year F = 

To avoid arbitrage both investment should have the same value:
= 
The proposed bail-out package is going to cost the US government a lot of money
and lead to higher inflation in the US, leading to a higher risk-free rate. This would
have the effect of weakening the USD and thus the USD/CAD FX rate would increase.
