border visit 12 march 2023Read Now
A mild sunny day. We arrived at about 3.45pm. The bus was delayed arriving in Plattsburgh. Spoke with an RCMP officer.
Just after 4 pm the first taxi arrived bring a man in his 30's with a suitcase and he slowly crossed over. Shortly afterwards a black SUV (not a taxi) brought 2 Arabic speaking men, who looked like father and son. They did not speak English or French and also crossed without incident.
Other taxis arrived in quick succession. Next was a family of three, mother, father and little girl aged about 4 years old. They spoke English. Next a taxi brought two young men each with a tiny backpack. Both were wearing only shoes and one had no coat. They indicated they did not understand English or French.
The last taxi brought two single people who both spoke French. One was a man in his 30's who said to the officer that he was from Congo (DRC). The other person was a woman who might have been from Haiti. They both looked exhausted.
Everyone crossed into Canada without incident. The RCMP officers were respectful and spoke kindly, one of them warning people to mind the ruts in the path as they crossed over.
In total 10 people crossed into Canada - 2 women, 7 men and one child.
