Arrow Reentry after more than 2 years

Dear Experts,

I landed in Canada as PR on 30th August 2002, got my PR card and came back on 30th September 2002. Since then I've been outside Canada. Now I am going back to Canada permanently and I've got my ticket booked for 10th November 2004 for Calgary. So I am outside Canada for more than 2 years now, I have couple of questions:

1. Will my PR status be ok on 10th November according to 2/5 rule?
2. My passport, landing papers and PR card - are they enough to allow me to reenter Canada or do I need to obtain Travel Document from Canadian Embassy?
3. Since I am going back after more than 2 years, will there be any problem at the airport in terms of tough questioning as to why I was outside for so long, or about my intentions or any other problem?

I am quite worried about my reentry. Will sincerely appreciate all advice.

Thanks & Regards
vagg

1. Yes, your status will still be OK in November.

2. Passport and PR Card will be enough

3. Nobody will ask why you were absent from Canada that long, but you will be asked how long you were absent.
