The Fruit Fiasco

Posted date : Dec 15, 2017

Ed: In CSANews Issue 101 we, meaning me, provided an incorrect response to a Bird Talk letter from Weldon Hehr regarding importing fruit from the U.S. into Canada.

Immigration rules and taxation rules: two distinct sets of rules

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017

I say almost, because I wonder if you’re doing members a disservice with such emphatic answers without stating upon which rules you are basing your answers. […]

Take a vacation while on vacation

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017

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, […]
