Alaska 2013 - - thinking and planning

Years ago we were going fishing in Canada with our pop-up (probably in the 1970's) and were carrying the food rations for a total of 4 families. The crossing guard asked us the value of the food we had with us and we said "probably around $500". He pulled us over for further discussion. He said something about having to pay a tax for that amount of food. We dodged that bullet when we pointed to the 3 other vehicles sitting not too far away and said "that food is for ALL of us". Apparently there's a limit per family.

Now, does such a limit per family still exist when crossing the border into Canada. I would hate to stock up on lower priced canned goods, etc. in the lower 48 and then find out that I having to pay some sort of tax for bringing that much into Canada.

Also, please name 3 - 4 vehicle parts I should tuck away in the basement of the MH. Thanks all !

I know that we regularly go to the states and bring back groceries and it doesn't seem to be a problem. Last week we went down for 5 or 6 hours and came back with 300-400 bucks worth of Costco stuff and like normal as long as we were not bringing back back booze or tobacco it was "have a nice day".

Here is a link: Visitors to Canada

Just made the trip to AK and back--crossed Canadian/AK border several times and US/Can twice. All they seem concerned about was firearms and firewood, more than 10k in dollars, and very little else. Never any second glances at any entry/exit point.

KenTheKanuck--
You are one of the ones making the news up in Bellingham, eh? When we went by the Costco, the turn lane was backed up--all BC tags.
