Border crossing

Posted date : May 13, 2019

I took particular note of your editor’s comment in the fall issue which stated, “I have found no rationale for the many and varied decisions given by border guards.” You are so right! Here is a classic example. My wife and I spend just less than six months each winter in California from late October […]

Retired Persons Visa

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017

Dear Bird Talk, My summer edition of CSANews just arrived today and I have read it from cover to cover. I believe it was one of the most interesting and informative issues I have read during my years as a CSA member. First off, the Editor’s Message was very enlightening. Then the various letters on […]

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017

My property taxes, and those of other snowbirds, Canadian or Americans, will go up from 19% to 53% while that of the Homesteaders will not rise above 3% while having always enjoyed an ongoing rate of […]

Political Advertisements

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017

Dear Bird Talk, I was very surprised to see an ad for the Ontario PC Party on the back page of the Fall issue of CSANews. I don’t believe it is in the best interests of the Association to accept advertisements from any political party anywhere in Canada. An ad like this appears to give […]

Standard General Election Date

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017

Dear Bird Talk, Am I missing something here, or are you and some CSA members spending too much time in the United States and thus losing touch with our parliamentary system? In the fall 2001 issue 40, you print a letter from H. Steeves suggesting a standard general election date of every four years in […]

Strong Dollar, High Premiums?

Posted date : Nov 7, 2017

Dear Bird Talk: I was interested in reading your Editor’s Message in the winter issue of CSANews (issue 65). There is no doubt that the Canadian dollar is buying much more than it did in even the recent past. All snowbirds hope that the rates of exchange stay where they are for many years to […]

Medical Conditions – Know Them of All

Posted date : Nov 7, 2017

Dear Bird Talk, This is in response to the member who wrote a letter in the summer edition regarding an Insurance Company that had a clause in its policy stating that the patient should know of all medical conditions he or she might have, and therefore he was not covered by insurance. The editors are […]

Vitamin K vs. Potassium

Posted date : Nov 6, 2017

In reply to the letter about atrial fibrillation and the avoidance of foods containing vitamin K. The editorial reply has confused vitamin K with K-potassium. The former, vitamin K, encourages clotting (and should be avoided if you have AFib), while potassium (found in bananas) is good for the heart and blood pressure. Another food high […]

Aspirin and NSAIDs

Posted date : Nov 6, 2017

Dear Bird Talk, I am writing with reference to Mr. Dawe’s letter regarding Aspirin and NSAIDs in CSA’s summer 013 edition. Mr. Dawe states that he “could not find any product that contained ASA” in Florida, and all the Aspirin products that he did find “all contained NSAIDs.” NSAIDs is not an ingredient or a […]
