Here’s an item worth knowing about, as reported in a CBC article yesterday:
The budget U.S. President Barack Obama submitted to Congress on Monday proposes to slap a $5.50 fee on every visitor from Canada who travels to the U.S. by air or by sea.
The fee would not apply to visitors arriving in private vehicles.
It’s not enough that I’m groped, molested, x-rayed and robbed by TSA agents in the US, now they think I should pay them more for being humiliated without warrant or cause? I think not. I won’t go there now, so the chance of going there and paying more for the experience is even more remote.
Obama should be looking closely at the criminals employed by TSA and clean it up before asking anyone for an ‘inspection fee.’
Keep your country, Obama. Seal your borders and continue to treat all your own citizens and visitors like criminals on the internet, streets, subways and airports. I won’t participate.
