Canadian Border crossing

We have OPP in Ontario. Having driven commercially in the mountains and having been pulled over they have portable scales and will detain you if overweight. Had it happen in Golden. Had to rent another cube van local and off load half the load to make them happy.

Sgt. Preston has died. His dog was left on a ice flow in Saskatchewan to meet his maker. The new RCMP is a lot different and more diverse than the old one was.

Why would they put King on an ice flow in Saskatchewan?
The TV show was filmed on Colorado! As a kid growing up in the fifties
I loved that show.

I chatted with a couple RCMP troopers in Milk River and they kinda rolled their eyes when I asked about Sgt. Preston.
No mention about my grossly overweight issue.

we just got back from a trip to Victoria, BC. it's been 30 years since we last crossed into Canada.

coming off the ferry, the officer was quite polite. but he then asked if we had any firearms. the few questions seemed to be aimed to trip us up by saying the wrong answer.
since i've read many threads about not taking firearms into Canada, i didn't have any nor did i mention that i had a CC permit.
but i lived in California for 55 years so i'm used to limitations regarding firearms.

being prepared for these types of questions made to entry uneventful and we had an excellent time in Victoria.

Same respect I offer the US border guards and leaving food home not allowed.
