I had no connections but I talked to a prof. that I really wanted to work with at UBC around september this year, and I got accepted afterwards. I think they care about the research experience a lot so make sure to include information on specifics of what you did when you email a professor. My first two year grades were not so good either, similar to yours (I have an undergrad CGPA of 3.54) I was however halfway through my master's with really good grades and solid relevant research experience. (FYI I applied for theoretical/computational astrophysics) Overall, I think you stand a good chance if you click with a professor since securing the advisor's commitment is a must at UBC for a PhD. By the way, are you applying for a master's program or a PhD because as far as I know it is not possible to get into PhD at UBC without a master's degree?
