RE: Attn Canadian snowbirds

If you are playing by the rules and not trying to screw the system......not a problem! I'm sorry but snowbirds are not screwing the system, it is the other way around. So as a retired Canadian by birth who may prefer to reside outside Canada more than 180 days annually I do not understand why Ontario puts my medical coverage in jeopardy. I do not contribute less to either the Canadian Government or the Ontario Government as I still pay my income and municipal taxes. I pay for out of country medical insurance to cover my time out of the country, so I am actually less of a liability to the Ontario health costs. Yet, there is a complex calculation allowing them to discontinue my coverage, which I paid for since my early twenties and continue to pay for now. Who is screwing who to cut costs Very well put!!! I re-read the article and take this away " A summer 2014 memo, recently released under the Access to Information Act, says savings can be expected through “preventing abuse and eligibility fraud” with respect to the employment insurance, old age security and child tax benefit programs by ensuring Canadian residency requirements are fulfilled." They are looking at EI and child benefit laws which do not pertain to "Snowbirds" so , in my opinion the title of this thread may be a bit misleading. The 183 day thing is a pain in the butt as I too would spend more time out of Canada if in was legal. Until the laws change, we are limited to the 183 days or so. What the Ontario gov`t does to your medical coverage happens in most if not all provinces. I too pay taxes in Canada.....I agree Snowbirds are less of a burden on our medical system. The law is what it is , like it or not.If I want to spend time out of Canada then I`m willing to pay the additional cost of medical coverage to do so. Just part of living the life.

We winter in Casa Grande at Palm Creek Golf & RV Resort. Check it out. Lots of in park activities....Golf, Pickleball (32 courts), wood working, quilting....and much much more.Great golfing in the area. 60 min to downtown Phoenix.75 min to Tucson. Less wind that Yuma...so I`ve been told. Have made this our winter home for the last 8 years.

RE: Should I exchange $$$$ to Canadian $$$$ Before.

Thanks.... We also use Wal-Mart as a bank while on the road.... We will for sure get some Canadian $$$$$ there...... I'll need for toll booths anyway from what I understand... What Canadian routes are you taking that are toll? Better, non toll roads, are probably available.

RE: Detroit to Niagara Falls via Canada, what to expect?

Check with CBS but that document from your wife re the kids may have to be notarized by a Notary Public/ Lawyer/legal beagle. Just a thought. May or not be an issue but worth checking into....... When our daughter visits us in Arizona with our grandsons in the winter, she has a notarized letter stating our son in law is aware of the trip. She has been asked every time for the letter by both US and Canadian authorities.

RE: Ammo OK?

Everything I've heard points at them being extra paranoid about guns. We ARE NOT paranoid about guns. OUR LAWS for OUR COUNTRY and for all who visit. Your laws for your country...which I obey when in the USA.

RE: When you cross the border now with pets.

Flyboy320, I am from the Toronto area as well. Could you please explain how that 'explains it!!! Big Time!!!?. My tongue in cheek humour at JaxDad re his "small town" comment when in fact the towns are large...........but not as large(big Time) as TO, Milton, the whole of St Catherine to Oshawa corridor. Doesn`t mean we are all small time if we are outside TO. PS...I`m from Trenton

RE: When you cross the border now with pets.

I'm not sure why you think commercial pet food would have anything to do with Avian Flu. Pets don't eat live chickens. I'm also not sure a couple farms close to each other in a single small town qualifies as "big time". It`s at least 4 farms and over 80,000 birds. Nothing small time about it! The CITIES involved are Abbottsford and Chilliwack each about the size of Kingston. Nothing small time at all JaxDad.....It`s 4 families livelihood. Nothing small about that.. OH, you`re from the TO area ......aaahhhh, explains it!!!Big Time!!!
