World traveler needs alternative to expensive ATM withdrawal fees.
I have a companion savings account with a Canadian bank but recently I've noticed they've been charging me up to $5 per withdrawal transaction. I think it's too much and I want out.
I am in the UK now with no intention of returning back to Canada to physically seek out, and open a new account with a better bank.
I need to find an alternative here in the UK (that allows Canadian visitors to open an account, make a deposit, and then leave the UK to use their debit card abroad (on the ATM PLUS system), and Webbanking to check balances, and statement, etc..
I'm looking for such a bank to bee fee-free (especially for withdrawals abroad), as well as free of other hidden charges, and taxes as well). Remember, the only reason I need a bank to withdrawal money abroad (that's it). Therefore, I don't want to pay any fees to the bank.

Thanks for any advice.
