Driving

Well, that certainly does not seem very neighborly on the part of the United States. U.S. citizens are allowed to drive through Canada as long as they are going to Alaska and don't stop in Canada.

Americans driving through Canada between Alaska and the lower 48 states are travelling from one part of the USA to another part of the USA. That is treated differently than third-country travel.

Having said that, the Alaska consideration is biting Canadians a bit as some Americans who are receiving the consideration are abusing it.

Here is one example from September.

They were fined only C$2000. Hardly a slap on the wrist. Given the consideration that Canada is giving to Americans, I think deportation and the subsequent legal implications for future travel would be more appropriate.

This is not new either. Here’s a half-dozen from report back in July.

Here is another one with a slap on the wrist for an American entering Canada illegally.
The Canadian woman involved shares responsibility and I think out to experience a significant consequence as well.
