Getting a straight answer on how the U.S. counts days

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017

Dear Bird Talk, Here’s another question about the 182-day issue. We live in Vancouver and have a vacation home in Washington State. Unlike true snowbirds, we use it on many weekends through the year and most of the summer. I keep track of our days (for example, if we go down on Friday afternoon and […]

Immigration rules and taxation rules: two distinct sets of rules

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017

Dear Bird Talk, I’ve read with interest the various letters to Bird Talk in issue 94 of CSANews. The clear, definitive answers to the various questions are very helpful…almost. 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. […]

Gun Issue

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017

JUST A NOTE Our comments on the gun issue woke up every advocate in the CSA, for both sides. 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, 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 […]

Subtracting Time From Six Months

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017

I sit in dismay, having read your response re: subtracting time from six months. You say that a fewer-than-30-day return to Canada cannot be subtracted when calculating total days allowed in the U.S. We have spent three to six months every year since 1994, always coming home for Xmas. Our time was not always the […]

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 […]

Health Care System

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017

Dear Bird Talk, The article in your magazine, #59 By Dr. Bob MacMillan was interesting and while the author seems to have a handle on the medical system in Toronto, Ontario, he doesn’t have much knowledge about Atlantic Canada, or at least Nova Scotia. We don’t have Private Clinics here and the wait times to […]

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 […]

Standard Election Dates

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017

Dear Bird Talk, Your Spring Issue 38 makes reference to voting problems experienced by our CSA members in November 2000. I have a degree of understanding for Elections Canada, due to the snap decision made by our government to have an election in November 2000. It is my opinion (I imagine you have heard it […]
