Cibc Aventura High Redeem Fees

So my bank sent me an offer to upgrade my card to an Aventura Gold Visa card, which I did from looking at the perks of it. Before I accepted I presumed the taxes and fees for redeeming would be around the same as the old Aeroplan fees since you can't check them until you have the actual card. After looking for flights (I mainly would fly to Cpt), it's coming up as 75k miles and between $700-800 for taxes and fees. Doing the math, this is worse than the 100k redeems on Aeroplan with the possibility of paying less than $200 in taxes based on who you fly with.

My main question, is there a way to reduce the large fees on Aventura or is it worth it to phone my bank and see if they will switch me to an Aeroplan card (I would lose travel insurance the Aventura card gives me)?
