Re: Bristol

Re: Opportunity to move to Vancouver - Advice needed.

Squamish is a beautiful area, I have friends that live there but you are very cut off and getting anywhere else in the GVA is a pain especially if it involves crossing two bridges. I would say North...

Re: Border crossing day after Canadian citizenship ceremony

To clarify, I'm having my ceremony this Friday morning, and going to the US Saturday morning, crossing by land at Peace Arch. I don't think that is sufficient time to update my NEXUS card. Also, I...

Re: Border crossing day after Canadian citizenship ceremony

Thanks for the advice guys - much appreciated! To be safe I'll take a copy of my PR card, citizenship certificate and British passport. Also thanks Gozit for the reminder about handing in my I-94W.

30 minutes from my apartment I have hikes that'll take me 8 hours and take me to places that I could get into serious trouble if I'm not prepared. 45 minutes and I can be on my snowboard.
