Thanks for the replies, all.

Wow, I had no idea, but then again I guess I can’t blame them, with the amount of madness that has been going on in the US over the past several years!

I keep semi-joking with my girlfriend...”Honey can we please move to Canada?”
Her response, “Hell no, they won’t even let us in to see a concert that we all paid $80 for with tickets to show.”
Then I ask, “Ok how about we move to the Adirondacks instead then?”
“Maybe” is best answer that I’ve received so far.

Been doing it for years and is usually pretty seamless. I used to travel back to Michigan for steelhead fishing and I would always end up going into Michigan about midnite. Was asked about my trip and the guy was very inquisitive. Turned out he fished the same rivers. Following years turned into fishing reports and gear talk while the lone line backed up.

However, when my daughter was about 15 I once was told to pull over pronto. Was a little shocked by this - brought us all inside the building and lined up at the counter while MANY questions were asked. Asked what the deal was and they explained my daughter had put her blanket over her head as we went through and they wanted to make sure I wasn't kidnapping her.

As we pulled away and my blood pressure dropped I asked her why. Said she was having a bad hair day. 10 years later we can laugh about it, but every time we go through now I hand her a hair brush for fun.

Haven't been too Canada in a long time ,maybe 30 yrs. even with living only 5 miles from the border here in NNY .. Didn't realized there was such an emphasis on DWI's We've been planning a visit to Ottawa , And now it looks like we might have to rethink it , ,for haveing a DWI in 93 in downstate NY .. No Trouble ever before or after that but still don't want the hassle of being turned around if we do decide to go .. any sugestions on how to find out for sure, At least though it wouldn't be a long trip home if it did happen..

hopefully this link works, it should take you to a section about DUI convictions

good luck
