Warning About Banking in the U.S.

Posted date : May 14, 2019

Be very careful when choosing which bank you deal with in the U.S.!!! From our experience, you will see what I am referring to. On Jan. 3, 2018, we deposited a Canadian draft in U.S. currency into the U.S. bank. We have been snowbirds for 10 years and this is the only bank we have […]

Border Crossing

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017

Dear Bird Talk, The official U.S. government website help.cbp.gov/app/answers notes that Canadian vacationers are only required under American law to present a valid passport.

Their comments ranged from “they only want a gun to shoot someone” to “how dare they restrict our right to bear arms and defend ourselves.” The following comments, from someone who has obviously had some direct […]

Dear Bird Talk, I recently read a newspaper article supposedly written by a U.S. immigration lawyer that states that, when snowbirds like ourselves spend time in the U.S., if we take a trip to another country from the U.S. and are gone for fewer than 30 days, when we calculate our six months’ time period, […]

Canadian gun rights in the U.S.

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017

Dear Bird Talk, My wife and I go to Florida each year; I have a question concerning owning a weapon in the United States. Over the years, we have made a lot of good American friends and all of them own guns for their personal protection. (Stand your Ground) They are very surprised that we […]

Provincial Picnics at Fort DeSoto

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017

Dear Bird Talk: For a number of years, we have attended and enjoyed the Prince Edward Island picnic held annually at Fort DeSoto Park in Florida.

Dear Bird Talk, I know you have received many letters regarding out-of-country medical expenses submitted to OHIP, but I thought your readers might be interested in my experience. On June1, 2005, I underwent coronary bypass surgery. When applying for out-of-country medical coverage for the following winter I took out a policy with Medipac with a […]
