I'm banned . Their loss over the last 20 years is a LOT of money. I applied for access once and was denied. Lots of great places in the US to hunt and fish. To say they lost $100k from me alone wouldn't be far off. But they don't care.



Sorry Mikell but your 100K is nothing in a 18.57 trillion USD economy. But, I do agree it's a stupid policy. I'm happy to come up to Canada though to visit and bring some tourism money

IN the tit for tat party, no American with a D.U.I. on his or her record is going to be let into Canada, anytime soon.

Why on Earth would anyone tell border force officials that they were involved in the trade???
When I eventually visit the US I'll just lie to get in on the ESTA visa waiver. The US officials have no access to UK criminal record databases. I'll lie and say 'sir' or 'ma'am' as appropriate, then chuckle to myself as I get in the country conning them.
It ain't rocket science, just lie.

Canada should retaliate by turning back all fishermen, hunters and those wearing ugly brown shoes.

Well the real way around this would be to hire a person, or people in the USA, to act on their behalf as need be. And ultimately use loop holes and other legal aspects to where it becomes a thorn and something that the US government can not touch.

a reply to: [post=23582036]Nyiah[/ Seems to me there are several reasons why Americans can't go into Canada,so what is the big deal once again,laws that have been in effect for several years,where is the blaming of Canadians because someone who had a dui in their lifetime or misdemeanor couldn't cross border,I know many Canadians,have relatives,beating a dead horse

It is what it is. I had someone I hired try to drive up to Alaska through Canada. They stopped him at the border because he had a DUI on his record. Ended up paying a fee for them to let him just drive through. Since that back in about 2003 I think, we just fly people up just in case. As I understand it Canada has direct access to driving and criminal records and that may be reciprocal. Likely with most countries it is.

not anywhere close to a valid comparison. DUI (driving under the influence), is illegal in both countries. plus if you have a DUI on you record, you have a criminal record. this means that you have been found guilty of committing a criminal offense, where such an action is a criminal offense. something that stops pretty much anyone, from going to any country. it's not the DUI per say that is stopping you from traveling, it is the fact you have a criminal record that is stopping you. i have known people with things like a criminal record from being with someone who was shoplifting as a teenager. that were found guilty, just because they were there with the person who was shoplifting. and they can not travel to another country due to that criminal record.


being involved in the legal marijuana trade in Canada is not illegal. and thus those involved in that legal business have NOT been found guilty of any crime. they have committed no crime. and thus there is no valid reason they should be blocked from entry to the US.

a valid comparison would be if Canada put a lifetime ban on anyone who worked for a pharmaceutical company that manufactures DHEA a steroid that is perfectly legal in the US. but completely illegal in Canada. as well as lifetime banning anyone who ever worked at a store that sells DHEA, such as many grocery stores, or other retailers like Costco, Rite Aid, Wal-Mart etc. (pretty much any store that sells any drugs since DHEA is not even a prescription drug in the US, but is out n the shelves with all the other non prescription drugs). that would be equal treatment and a valid comparison to this.

Well now just wait a second. Let's see what the Bible says about weed. That'll surely clear things up.
