I'm going to assume you're from 'murica so we sincerely apologize that the show doesn't include the words pawn, dynasty, Boo-Boo, amish or Kardashian.

In Edmonton, traveling on business, in 1993 or 1994, they hassled me over an Ultima IV Spell Book I brought along to pass time and maybe learn something about the computer game I was playing at the time, asking me if I practiced witchcraft. I assume if I had sarcastically answered yes, I would have been denied entry.

You can blame Pat Pulling for that.

Assuming they didn't persecute him for being furry, If I were this guy, I would have asked the Canadian gents why they thought I as an American citizen had to have on hand a return ticket or bus fare to Hawaii, specifically, and not just to, say Washington state, North Dakota, Montana, Minnesota, or New York, etc. i.e. bus fare back to ANY part of the US  just over the border.   The agents seem to act like Hawaii is a sovereign nation, not a state of the US. Which I'm sure native hawaiians wouldn't mind.  But still, Bus fare back over the border is the standard, and that could be as low as fifty bucks. The Canadian logical argument for refusing him seems... flawed. Seems like they made up the argument because it was easier to say that, and seem politically correct and un-predjudiced, than to say: "We don't like no queerz or animal-farkers adding to our local color, yankee."

Note to fedora-man:  Next time you want to visit your Canadian buddies, ship your laptop and tail ahead, or wipe the laptop, fill it with innocuous crap, and re-load your files remotely after you get to your destination. Border guards are not chosen for mental agility, independent thought, and higher reasoning, regardless of nation.  You were too dumb to say: "I'm staying with some friends for a vacation; I've left Hawaii, with plans to re-locate on the Mainland in the US.  Meanwhile, they're putting me up for a week or two while I'm here, before I re-locate to ( any bordering state)".  I wanted the scheduling flexibility to pick a return time after seeing my friends and touring your country a bit, so I didn't want to commit to a specific day before I go back. There wasn't anything about needing an advance return ticket in the rules when I booked this trip".

Of course, you're in their system and flagged now. You actually have no hope of ever getting in legally in the future anyhow.  They'll make any excuse they need to, or none at all, saying "fark you, because, that's why (sorry)". (The "Sorry" is because they will still be polite about it, being Canadian.

I've crossed the border on the bus quite a bit, that very stop too (Vancouver/Seattle) and that was pre 9-11 and yeah, that will happen.
1) If you don't have a return ticket
2) If you don't have money
3) If you don't know the exact address you'll be staying
This guy was at least 2 out of 3. No fursecution here.

No... he was singled out for being a furry.  Mind you it was wearing the frickin' tail that did it.

Traveling to meet two boyfriends.
Which he meet while playing video games.

It's like poetry.

It seemed like it was more about keeping someone with $350 and no ticket home out of a place where he potentially couldn't afford to return from.
