    Just remember you're not allowed in to Canada if you've been arrested (and convicted) in the last 10 years.

    Yo, I've heard some stories aboot this but am totally clueless. I didn't have any problems. Are you talking tourist or trying to gain citizenship? I've heard stories concerning both. I don't know. It wasn't even an issue the last time I went to Canada. Didn't even come up. Doesn't make sense since their legal system is so forgiving up there compared to ours.

    But then I was watching something aboot people trying to become legal here in good ol' America, and they were denied because they had a DUI ten years ago? What? Everybody drinks and drives, even our former presidents and vice presidents. You know most of our presidents have been alcoholics(at some point of time or another).

    Immigration, wow, North America's native people really got the shaft.

    Oh, and I F'up, don't look for the cow for beach break antics, look for the Moose. Sorry. Animals confuse me sometimes...hey LETS KILL THEM ALL !!

    Man, I want to be in Nova Scotia so bad right now. I just kicked my elderly neighbor because we're in New Jersey.

    Some years ago I almost tried to move to Edmonton because they were hiring foreign workers due to human capital issues. Got to love that Fort McMurray oil sands. Things were so bad that fast food places were closing during periods of the day because they didn't have the staff. But, being stranded in Edmonton while waiting to become a citizen, so I could move elsewhere(legally and financially) would have been bad. Probably would have joined one of the native gangs and been taking blasts and chugging and shoot. Ya know what it is that I be sayin' ?

    This thread is reaffirming the surf trip I've been thinking about taking to NS this fall. Thanks for the inspiration all!

    Argyle St..... crazy fun.

    Explore, explore, explore.

    I rode the tidal bore on the Bay of Fundy.... not that great.

    Whiskey is sold in bars by the oz.... and I mean, a measured OZ... no free-hand pouring.

    If you are driving up, you do not need a passport book - there is a card you can get, costs less than passport book. Allow a couple months to get it. Go to local Post Office. If you fly up, you need the passport book.

    Never been, but check out Big Lake NS on the map. That place looks magical.

    I crossed the border last year at Derby Line, VT and was asked by the Canadian border guard if I'd ever been denied entrance to the country. I said no, and was promptly directed to park the car and come inside. It turns out I had been denied entrance about 20 years earlier for something on my record, but had simply forgotten about it. They let me in and told me to "tell the truth" next time. The wife was not impressed. Given that experience I would not doubt NYNJ's statement that you would not be allowed in Canada if you've convicted in the US within the past 10 years.
