Default 30days visitor visa rule applies to Canadian?

My friends are coming over from CAN to visit me in the US. Does the new 30 days visitor visa rule applies to Canadian? how many days can they stay at most?

Point 1: this is a *proposed* rule. It is *not* in effect yet. Point 2: the proposed
rule, once it is enacted, applies to people with B2 visitor visas. AFAIK, Canadian
citizens do not need a B2 visa to enter the US.

Would the 30 day maximum apply to other nationalities (British, Australian, NZ etc)
using the visa waiver program?

Unknown at this stage ... this is just a proposal ... Consider that the INS will
probably shoot it down themselves when they realize the administrative nightmare it
will create when thousands more extensions of status requests come rolling in! It
takes them 6-12 months to process an I-539 B2 extension request now. I've also
heard the proposal described that you will be admitted by default for 30 days max,
UNLESS YOU REQUEST OTHERWISE, as opposed to 90 days or 6 mos. default now even if
requested shorter.

So you're saying that this rule applies to those with visas only? Isn't it true
that canadians come to the US with B-2 status, even though they do not have to
have a visa?

Another unintended side-effect will likely be that other countries that give
reciprocal visa conditions to US citizens (i.e. you give our citizens 60 days and
we'll give yours 60 days etc.) will scale back US citizens visa terms in their
country. Probably doesn't matter to Americans too much since only something like
15-20% of them actually have a passport.
