Canadian Customs – Their job is to protect the countries borders. You
can assist them by having the passports for everyone in the vehicle
ready to give to the Customs Agent when asked. It will be helpful for
them to open each passport to the page with the picture. Be polite and
don’t try to engage them in frivolous conversation. If they want to go
through your vehicle, boat, trailer, whatever — they have that right.
And don’t expect them to put your stuff back. Complaining will not get
you through customs faster. Once I saw a fella totally wig out about
something and in the middle of his loud ranting, right after they hand
cuffed him he learned that they have barred cells in the facility and
will use them.
Blaze Orange – It is required in Ontario. You need a vest and cap. And
the regulations state that you have to have them on, with the one
exception of when you’re in a treestand. Pick up the hunting regulations where you get your bear license so you
are on top of this because you will get a fine if you mess up.
