I do know her, she is approximately my age, and I understand the stigma still attached - ehe doe snot want to use her name. :( i get it. She did not go into detail but she was reached and so was her car and treated like what she felt was like a criminal. I get that too.
Imagine that dad, 20 years later- he might lose his job, have to explain bullshit to his kids, maybe even his wife for something - he probably forgot about.
Do you have a planned trip into the the USA this summer with your kids? Heads UP! Apparently the only way you will learn about this new CASH grab- lets see it for what it is, is at the border. and then it will be too late.
* She did admit to me she was searched ned finger printed- I don't know that they can do that? I am NOT sure and WHY?
If we are not allowed entry then FINE there is NO need to search or finger print. I wonder if she asked 'why and said 'NO, what would have happened. I do not have a criminal record but even traveling now across the border- and with Poppy is not an attract thought lately. Canada it is.
Her eis a link for some of you that might want to find out more na start the process to avoid being turned back: http://uswaiver.pardonservicescanada.com/travel/?gclid=CJrckaya68wCFQUIaQod6dcOiA
One more way to make money and punish those what they can for a mistake made long ago, IF we held all responsible for mistakes they made long ago- no one would be free, as they would like to have us think already. Here is the e mal i asked to explain what happened:
TY for the chat yesterday, if I can save 1 person from the experience I had at the boarder this week it's worth sharing. For anyone who has been granted a Canadian Pardon for an offence, Canadian pardons are no longer recognized at the US boarder.
26 years ago I was charged for possession of a controlled substance (MJ), a small amount (less than an oz). I applied for a pardon & a pardon was granted. In the 30 years since I've traveled all over the world, including into the US many times. As recently as December of 2015, I drove through the same boarder in Windsor, ON.
This week I was denied entry as you now require a Federal pardon. I answered all of their questions, everything was in order, everything checked out, they even called my employer to confirm employment - also checked out yet was denied entry, first time ever in all those years. I was given the waiver package to fill out, this is what everyone will need now. There are a few steps & things to obtain for the package submission, the cost is $585 US.
There are 1, 3 & 5 year waivers that are issued so you have to renew it when it's up, at the cost of $585.00 US, for life. While I was pretty distraught about the whole situation, I'm grateful I was alone and none of my loved ones had to share this undesirable experience. There is a story of one young family with 3 children heading to Florida for vacation, the Dad had an MJ offence from his youth, also held a Canadian pardon.
He was denied entry and the whole family vacation was ruined & no doubt those 3 young kids will never forget the experience. Federal Waiver packages can be obtained at boarder crossings.
The process takes 2-6 months.
Safe & Hassel Free Travels Everyone.
* Use this information as you will, I hope it saves someone some stress or better yet- spend your hard earned vacation money this year in CANADA! I LOVE Halifax, P.E.I, I am seriously looking for a ride - from here to PEI with me and Poppy this summer. If anyone reading this blog is headed in that direction! I can't travel with a smoker- Cannabis only & will not travel with a drinker- until at our destination OR someone who answers their PHONE. All others can apply.. lol
I will share in gas and such. ;) & want to paint & chill by the ocean this summer if possible.
Back to chilling in the back yard on my hammock today.
