Very nice shot! LIKE! Welcome to the group 45th parallel north... ciao from Italy
Just noticed this article on the cbc website about various border crossings
I was saddened to read in a new book about the Maine-New Brunswick "Imaginary Line" by Jacques Poitras that the Petersens have passed away. The author suggests the stress put on them by the US Border Patrol by not allowing them to have any visitors hastened their death.
Very interesting point! Like!
I would not like to live there on a Sunday afternoon when there is often significant lineups.
You are referring to St-Pamphile port of entry where a few houses are beyond the border. I remember that case where a guy enede with a big fine for crossing a closed border. Before Sept 11, they had special passes that would allow them to cross at will.
In Ste Aurélie, I'm not aware of permanent residents living on the US side but there is housing for the CBP staff.
we live in Bromont which is about 50 mins or so from Montreal....sort of due east ...Eastern Townships area...ive mapped most of photos ive taken just look around im hard to miss..dukem991 is everywhere well not quite but getting there slowly one area at a time
I did a bit of visiting but not much as I was late on my schedule. I did took a picture of Taillon's Hotel, a classical border landmark. I will try to manage more next time around.
It is clear that this barricade is far frombeing the Berlin Wall. It only prevents vehicle from crossing. However, there must be camera and sensoss as well.
For about 500 meters it does align but after that the road goes inside Canada.
