Senator Runciman Hoping to Make Boating Less Stressful for American Neighbours

A new bill before the Senate may make boating in the area less stressful this summer.

Senator Bob Runciman introduced Bill S-233 yesterday (February 1st) that would amend the Customs Act and Immigration and Refugee Protection Act.

The bill would exempt American boaters for checking in with Customs when they cross into Canadian waters, provided they do not drop anchor or arrive on shore.

The bill would solve a touchy issue since dating back to 2011 which saw an American fishing boat was fined a $1000 for slipping over the border.

Runciman hopes the bill will become a law by the time this year's boating season begins.

    I wonder if there's an actual line in the ping pong rulebook that says you need a paddle. Anyway, this guy will have a leg up if it turns out you can have a wine glass ping pong league.
  • Ready Player One Trailer

    It seems like everyone was talking about this book a few years ago. Here's the trailer for the movie they made from it!
  • Star Wars Guitar Symphony

    Star Wars Episode 8 came out and tons of people went to see it. It seems appropriate to show this guy playing the Vader theme on 70 guitars.
