Welcome Back to Canada

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017

Dear Bird Talk, On some occasions when returning home after spending the winter months in Texas, we have been greeted by Canadian customs officers at the Sarnia/Port Huron border crossing who made us feel as if we were spoiling their day by being at their booth. This past spring was different, as the young lady […]

PSA Test Should be FREE

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017

Dear Bird Talk, A number of years ago I had an ileostomy, which has rendered it impossible for me to have a rectal digital prostate exam and my only hope for a check-up, was a PSA test. While it is not the cost so much as it is the principle, I find that OHIP will […]

Beware of OHIP Coverage when Travelling

Posted date : Nov 7, 2017

Dear Bird Talk: I hope you will consider alerting other snowbirds to a terrible experience we had down south this winter. My friend was not feeling well, so I took her to the hospital. We were told that we could use their fast-track facility, which is like a clinic. After registering with the receptionist, she […]

Posted date : Nov 6, 2017

Dear Bird Talk, I read your article about the gentleman who was stopped at Newark because of an old DUI for which he had a Canadian pardon. The offence was from 32 years earlier, but he would require an American waiver. I was alarmed, as we travel to the states frequently and my husband had […]

Posted date : Nov 6, 2017

Dear Bird Talk, I have been given an exit date of March 8, 2015, even though it is far fewer than 182 days for my stay in the U.S. The agent would not tell me why. Is there a way to get this visit extended to April 15? Even though I have never overstayed in […]

Entrance Fee at Extravaganza

Posted date : Nov 4, 2017

Dear Bird Talk, We think there should be a charge for non-members at the Extravaganzas. We went to the one in Lakeland. There were so many people we could not enjoy ourselves. One or two dollars would help all the good work you try to do. We know sponsors pay for some of the cost […]

AGM

Posted date : Nov 4, 2017

Committee chair, I have been a snowbird member since its inception and believe it to be a great organization for the snowbird population. I would however like to make a suggestion that I’m sure has been made before, that is to charge a nominal fee to non members to access the annual meeting and entertainment […]
