It's funny, though. When I was a salesman I used to get hassled a lot at the US
border. Once I was delayed for 2 hours at Niagara Falls. I won't get into the
details, it was just pure egotism on the part of one particular officer and not at
all typical of the politeness that is the norm, in my experience. But I did get
questioned a lot. Even my son, when he went to Provo to the MTC, had to get a
special visa and he had all the paperwork, which Salt Lake had sent him, and it
was only supposed to take 15 minutes. But because he was eventually going to
Russia, it took an hour and he had to run to catch his plane.
But as a provincial civil servant, I have *never* been stopped. Always just a few
perfunctory questions, a smile, and I'm on my way.
