This dude was a douche and was looking for trouble.

This is not to say that the border cops are perfect and don't profile and so forth...but in this case in particular, the guy was asking for it.

The Canadian guy was a jackass. I cross the border all the time (my wife is American)...

They may ask questions that have nothing to do with anything, the bottom line is... answer them to the best of your ability and be on your way. They ask those questions for many reasons (i.e to read your body language etc. )

American border guards are usually jerks but Canadian border guards are just as bad depending on who you get... they're not there to be friendly.

Personally, I think the U.S. Borders are far more secure than ours on the Canadian side... I've actually driven through to Canada without showing any documentation...

I used to hit up Seneca casino for long stretches of poker years ago before our casino went 24 hrs. Crossing back over theyd ask where Id been, casino Id say, next theyd ask how much am I bringing back... Id say I was at a casino so nothing hahaha and we'd both laugh.

Seriously though no matter how odd the questions or douchie the guard just smile and answer nicely and soon youll be on your way.

For the record. The best way to get around a jackass on a Power Trip is to give him exactly what he wants and answer his questions. Swallow your pride for 3 minutes.

If you answer the questions and stay focused on getting over the border, its just a regular ole' day for the officer on a power trip. If you give him lip and start questioning him, you're only giving him more statisfaction when he finally puts you in your place.

whats this story I read they are using voice stress software at some borders checks.Its like a lie detector but uses the voice of a individual pitch to detect stress levels.Its suppose to be %85 accurate and use to stream line crossings.One of buddies is from Sri Lanka and been in Canada for a only 5 years and has a strong accent,he never got stopped once but my other buddy who is from Serbia but been here since he was 9 years old gets stopped every other time.

i used to hate customs officials on both sides until my "friend" got arrested at the canadian border (re-entry) with pot. After 3 hours and a stern talking to, my "friend" was on his way. No paperwork, no charges.

edit: and no bong

if people started killing politicians the way the system can murder its own citizens - what they thought wouldn't matter much either! or at least they'd get way more of the publics opinions on things before they made new law or reg's

anyways...the Canadian at the border is a complete tool!! way to make us look bad! Border guards are power trippers as it is, you don't need to start with the attitude to get yourself into deeper shit! what a goof!

This idiot is crossing into another country, and he thinks that he's not gonna get questioned?

That tool just gives all Canadians a bad name. It's embarrassing.
no kidding. He deserved everything!
