Assuming it's a Canadian passport, just go to the office in Calgary tomorrow with proof of travel date, your old passport and $110. You'll have a new one in 24 hours.

IMHO you are SOL. This link provides details on getting an emergency passport but applies only if in the UK

IMHO, I concur with my esteemed colleagues above.

I'd be interested to read an update. Family member is currently dithering on waiting for British passport fees reduction versus getting stuck outside UK.

https://www.gov.uk/emergency-travel-document
An emergency travel document allows you to leave the country you’re in and travel to your destination via a maximum of 5 countries.

The emergency travel document can also cover a return journey if you’re resident in the country you’re applying from.

You need to apply in person. Contact your nearest British embassy, high commission or consulate to check if you need to make an appointment.

You must bring with you:

a completed emergency travel document application form
a recent photograph of yourself
proof of your travel plans - eg, booking confirmations (or detailed written travel plans if you can’t book ahead)
a police report if your passport has been stolen
You will have to pay a fee in local currency, equivalent to £95.

Getting your emergency travel document
The embassy or consulate staff will check that you’re eligible for an emergency travel document. If you’re not, they will tell you why.

You may get the document on the day you apply if your circumstances are straightforward. It can take longer if your circumstances are more complex. You may need to change your travel plans.
