The gun issue is a huge bone of contention with Americans coming to Canada.
We Canadians do not understand who you need protection from. Easy, criminals who want to do you harm
While travelling the USA we went to church each Sunday. We were shocked to
see people wearing sidearms into church. Has the USA reached the point where you actually need protection from someone at church? Yes, several active shooters have been stopped by armed parishioners and even priests
Canadians travel to the US every year by the thousands.
We study your rules, laws, government, etc.
We do not question the fact when dog food, green veggies, etc, are confiscated.
That is the way it is.
When I came back from the States this year, I was asked if I had any chicken from three certain states. I checked and said "NO". I was passed through.
The following week, NO CHICKEN, EGGS, were allowed.
SO WHAT. This is what it is.
Come to Canada. Enjoy the scenery, the food, the culture, etc.
Quit complaining that the rules are different from the USA.
We Canadians spend millions of dollars each year and keep the US economy alive.
We like to be welcomed and would love to be able to spend more time and money.
Yes.....rules are different.........look them up before you travel.
And, as you said, rules are different. One of the things we can do is choose where we go and spend our money.
