heh heh. I hope you're not moving to Toronto if you want to escape
traffic if you think that 20km of traffic is bad. Hell, that's a
normal rush hour.
LOL!

Hi Mr Jim,

Is it true that mailing a PR card outside Canada is illegal?

Thanks

Hello,

What stops anyone returning to Canada on their passports as a visitor?

Travel Document, which would take them about two weeks to prepare,
plus the time it takes to ship the passports back and forth. They also
told me I should indicate when I wanted to travel back to Canada, in
case it was in the very near future, so they could try in take that
into account. Very friendly.

I hinted at the oddness of not being able to enter Canada with my
Dutch passport now that I've become a landed immigrant, where I never
needed a visa to enter as a tourist, fishing for some loophole, but
the lady's comment was just that if I had waited for the PR card,
there wouldn't have been a problem (in which she was right of course)

Since I'll be flying back at the end of January I have one or two more
weeks to wait with the application to see if the PR cards arrive at my
Alberta address. So far nothing, it's been four weeks, and a few days.
The rest of the family will come one month later so they will probably
be OK.

I've been back in the NL for a week now, this morning I was treated to
20 km of traffic jam....yep, I still remember why I wanted to leave!
