Passport needed at US Border

Today marks the beginning of a new era, for travelers at the Canada/U.S. border.

No longer can they just drive cross the land border, between the two countries, with just a driver’s licence for identification.

Starting today, Canadians — and Americans returning to the U-S — will have to present a passport or some other form of secure identification, to American border officers.

The United States started tightening border controls, in the wake of the 9-11 terrorist attacks, even though business groups on both sides of the border are worried, tighter rules could harm two-way trade and tourism.

The B-C government plans to introduce a driver’s licence soon, that can be used instead of a passport.
