Biden getting plastered at a hockey game would certainly be DVR-worthy.

True story, but not a new occurrence. A friend of mine was declared an "international undesirable" and denied entrance into Canada because of a decade-old DUI charge. This was around five years ago.
 
2013-01-15 10:41:31 AM
Can this go both ways? I think that dbag from Nickelback had a DUI a year or so ago. Go back to Canada and take your crappy music with you.

a) This isn't new by any stretch.
b) The US border blocks people for DUIs more recent than 7 years as well.
c) No sympathy whatsoever for drunk drivers. Cry, little man.

The U.S. has been refusing Canadians entry because of impaired driving charges since 2001. (At the border crossing near me.)

What?!?! You mean countries wna tot know who is coming in and make determinations about whther or not htey like them in their country based on their past history!!??!??!

"But it ended at the Canadian border - with the father crying and his 18-year-old son driving alone to Fairbanks, where he was stationed with the U.S. Air Force."

I feel sorry for the kid who had to be seen with a crying father. Then he finds out for the first time that pops had been arrested for DUI...three times! My parting words to him would have been: "I have no father."

I grew up on the border in NY, and we use to joke about telling the border people "that guy behind us can't go to canada because of DUI" that was about 18 years ago.....guess who's not laughing now.
there's a reason why DUI isn't a problem in canada, which is amazing if you've ever seen how open a subject it is.....they didn't even id people. I was 16, but was told to be sure the driver was good to go...

Yeah, inorite? What a crying little pussy. He should go cry in his beers.
 
2013-01-15 10:55:21 AM
Oh, what's a coupla beers before driving, eh?
 
2013-01-15 10:55:21 AM
Well to be fair we really can't be letting in people who manage to get drunk off of American beer, what will happen when they get up here and our beer has twice the alcohol content, those drunks will be out of control!
 
2013-01-15 10:55:29 AM
The solution is to legalize drunk driving.

/if everyone is doing it, it should be legal
 
2013-01-15 10:57:57 AM

NSCSB:

Just ran head-on into Canada's polices Sunday morning.

No DUI or pot possession on my record.

Their reason for me being "undesirable"?

A misdemeanor check charge from four years ago. ( Put stop-payment on check I wrote, they pressed charges of writing "bad/NSF check".) Took my lumps, paid fines/restitution, did year of probation....blahdie blah blah........

But in Canada that's "forgery", a ten-year felony.

*facepalm*

Now I have to apply for a waiver.

End NSCSB

No dice, I was rooming with a professional skier a few years back and his sponsors sent him on his way to XGames qualifier in Vancouver, denied, at the Airport...

"Those checks reveal expunged charges." Doesn't that defeat the purpose of expunging anything? I mean, no sympathy for the DUIs aside, but from a legal perspective, what's the point if they're going to use it anyway?

If you don't mind my asking; there's a point that could stand a little more clarity. What caused you to put the stop payment on the cheque? Was the store trying to screw you over?

CSB

I was born in the US and raised in Canada which enabled me to be able to get a Canadian citizenship. I got a DUI in the US and years later crossed the border into Canada using my Canadian citizenship card. When I came back down into the US using my Georgia state driver's license they handcuffed me because the case hadn't been sewn up properly (I failed to report my community service hours). They were boggled by how I got back into Canada. Once I clarified how I crossed and that I was actually a US citizen, they un-cuffed me, sent me on my way and told me to stay away from Georgia.
 
2013-01-15 11:20:28 AM
And the US denies Canadians entry over minor pot infractions. I'd say that's a hell of a lot more rude than not letting in people who drive drunk.

Sub-Contractor billed me for services, but I discovered AFTER writing check that said services .were NOT rendered.

In Pennsylvania and other states, DUI is a misdemeanor. But DUI is a more serious offense in Canada.

Yes, but in Canada a DUI is over 0.3%.
 
2013-01-15 11:26:33 AM
Ive been stopped in '92, let in in '94, and tried twice in one day in '97...that's called "port shopping". The funny hat wearing mofo kept me and my shovel head at the checkpoint inside Glacier for 10 hours before he let me go.

now for the CSB time;

in September 2001, right after the buildings came down, I was driving a brand new rented Town Car fro Chicago to NYC. I figured I'd pass thru the Windsor Tunnel and save some time...wrong. Those hockey watching bastards tore that Town Car apart as they were convinced I was a drug smuggler. 12 hours later, and with all door panels removed, they turned me around. I gave a copy of the customs paper to Hertz and walked away when I returned the farked up car. Never heard fro them.

You can blame that on the US WoD. The US has put constant pressure on the Canadian gov to toe the line on the issue to the point that when Canada was talking about legalization about 10-5 years ago Washington had a bird and the Canucks knuckled under.
There is also the problem of dealers trying to cross the border and that often means weapons are along for the ride.

because we all know it's not what your convicted of, just of your arrest......so sad

cops will charge you with anything they can....they're broke, just like the system....

The Father is a tool.

It's an international border, not a suburb. They can let in whom they want and exclude whom they want.

To cry like a baby over it; and to be proud of it? Tool.

Down here in the Florida Keys, folks are arrested all the time after disembarking cruise ships; it's always warrants from other areas. You know they're cruise-ship arrested when the Sheriff's Office lists the arrest location as 245 Front St., which is where Customs checks passengers.

Decriminalization, actually. Legalization never had much support outside of the usual 'libertarian stoner' crowd.

True. Decriminalization has essentially the same effect for border agents though. If you simply get fined and it doesn't show up for them, then they won't know to deny you entry.

With a number of the states getting into the decriminalization/legalization game though, I wonder how long they'll be able to prevent it up here. It's already pretty much decriminalized in Vancouver. Don't expect the Conservatives would ever legalize it. NDP probably would though.

Sorry... messed up my wording. And that should have read 10-15 years ago.

It was still bullsh*t though. Nice to see things have changed since then... albeit in a weird, convoluted, sweatervest wearing way. Probably because the wars were distracting Washington from their overreaching puritanical weirdness.

FTA: "The Canadians told the Lower Southampton man he'd have to go back home and apply for a special waiver to get into their country. It could take as long as a year to process. And it guaranteed nothing."

Um, the US does exactly the same thing, and has for years.

Yup. Turns out I was supposed to sue him. Had all this explained to me by sympathetic judge, he gave me minimum penalties, fines, etc.
