A visitor from the United States learned a difficult lesson this week, being denied entry into Canada for forgetting to bring any travel documents or identification.
Without proper paperwork, authorities with Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) were forced to completely limit the tourist’s access – even if the little guy had told CBSA says that he is looking to enter “for reasons of need”.
He then made a “vigorous attempt” to gain entry, something CBSA officials could deny.
Photographs from the incident show the tourist, perhaps agitated, presumably trying to intimidate the officers by climbing up the signpost and staring them down. The tiny American then attempted to break into a safe booth where CBSA Pacific Region officers were stationed.
