Canadian Immigration Taxes Us at the Border
Hey, J.C. Bouvier here with an update on our arrival into our base camp in P.E.I. Canada. So, on our way into Halifax, Ed Butler and I were warmly welcomed by the customs officals who kindly asked us to stop by immigration on our way through.
The young lady behind the desk asked both Ed and I what it was exactly we were to be doing during our stay...to which Ed and I replied honestly...we would be gathering video and audio for this blog among other things. This declaration caused the young immigration person to review some Canadian law, codes and other miscellaneous facts and figures...at the end of the 35 minute exchange...we were told that we would need work permits: Cost $150 Canadian dollars each. D'oh!
The photo you see of Ed shows his glee upon receiving the news...added benefit...due to the missed flight we were able to take in a bit of the local food, beverage and entertainment...including 3 holes of Golden Tee 2004...
