We’ve crossed the Canadian border more times than I can remember, but never before have we been asked if we had weapons in the car. And, it was the Canadian border patrol doing the asking, the US border patrol didn’t ask. Sadly, I think it may be a sign of the times. Aside from a few questions such as in which state do we live, where were we going and how long would we be there, along with a quick scan of our passports, crossing the border was a drive-through breeze. It was just a matter of waiting our turn.
