It seems that the Canadians are now following the US lead and tightening up the border.
I applaud this, but at the same time I also admit it probably won't do much good for either country. I have been questioned a few times myself in great detail already traveling between the two. I'm a young single white guy with a good job, not necessarily your sterotypical terrorist. However somehow I an the guy who gets interogated. But, I've got nothing to hide and I always answer the questions as politely as possible. I have a slight record, but honestly it is nothing that prohibits me from traveling (like a DUI can strangely enough) so I should be good to go.
With the passport thing in effect now, I just hope we don't start seeing big backups at the border. I think that would really discourage casaul travel in both directions.
Oh well, I hope to be up in Montreal next month. I guess we will all have to make do. It is the times we live in now unfortunately.
