Expensive border crossings
It seems the potential cost of crossing the border from Canada is increasing. It cost one fellow $500, another one $10,000 (or maybe it was only a significant inconvenience), and this one, who was facing up to 20� years in prison and $500,000 in fines, the 35 days he had already spent in jail. Unless these stories are less than fully forthcoming, I can't see that these folks did much wrong.
