Windsor/Detroit Border Crossing!

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017.

Making reference to your reply to the letter in issue 66 of CSANews re: Florida Driver’s Licence, I would like to tell you about our experience and, at the same time, correct your statement. In October 2007, we too were asked by the border agent if any one of us (my wife & I) had […]

Non-Residents Driver’s Licence

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017.

Dear Bird Talk, At the Detroit border crossing on Oct. 26, 2007, we were unfortunate to get a very officious U.S. border agent by the name of Sanchez. He wasn’t very pleasant while informing us of the 180-day rule (we had our last five years of copies of Form 8840). Then, seemingly out of the […]

Medications Crossing the Border

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017.

Dear Bird Talk, I thought that you would be interested in printing the enclosed information and, by finding out whether other seniors have experienced similar problems, take steps to enlist another voice on our side. Possibly Hon. Tony Clement, minister of health. Predictably, there has been no reply from the Foreign Affairs Department. Yours Truly, […]

Mobile Home Parks

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017.

Dear Bird Talk, With reference to Arthur Duncan’s query regarding info for mobile home parks in Arizona, he should write for a list to the Arizona Winter Visitors’ Association, P.O. Box 3997, Apache Junction, AZ 85217 OR the Apache Junction Chamber of Commerce, Apache Junction, AZ 85220. Or, better yet, just drive down there, stay […]

Motel Security

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017.

Dear Bird Talk, On my drive home from Florida last spring I made it a point to stop overnight, before dark, at a large well-lit center. I was given a room at the back of the motel, which I accepted because it would be quieter there & I could then get a good sleep. But […]

Reputable Gas Stations

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017.

Dear Sir or Madam; Coming home to Canada from Florida this spring, I had a bad experience. I stopped for gas as we came along Highway 10, between I-75 and I-95, at a stop before we reached MacClenny. The gas station was somewhat isolated and run down. I filled the tank and for the next […]

Nexus Lane

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017.

Dear Bird Talk, Further to my discussions with your office about whether to use the Nexus Lane or not, I have taken your advice and talked to 2 different members of Nexus office in Blaine Washington and gotten two different opinions. My concern was that all the literature treats this lane as a commuter lane […]

Border Crossing with Children

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017.

Dear Bird Talk, We are planning a short trip across the border to visit with our daughter and her family. We intend to bring along our great-grandson. Can you advise us what we need in documentation for him? Friends have told us that a letter from his mother authorizing us to have him travel with […]

Vehicle Insurance and Licensing

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017.

Dear Bird Talk, I spend four winter months in Florida and am getting tired of the return drive. I’d like to fly and buy a car in Florida to keep there. What rules about owning and insuring a vehicle do I need to consider in making my decision? How about my Canadian driver’s licence, is […]

Coming Back Across the Border, AGRRR!

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017.

Dear Bird Talk, Up to now, we have been reluctant to join your group, preferring to stay on the sidelines, but our recent return to Canada has forced a change. We entered Canada at the Coutts, Alberta crossing the morning of April 12th and were dismayed and unhappy with our treatment by Canada Customs. Upon […]
