Sunday, August 12th 2018. Afternoon. Roxham Road, USA.
A hot summer day. Only 7 people crossed into Canada while we were there. First came a young black French speaking mother with a daughter about 4 years old. She was very nervous. Nearly an hour later a taxi arrived with a 'white' man who spoke neither English or French and walked quickly across the border without stopping to listen. Finally came a family of four of African origin– mother, father and two small sons aged about 2 and 3. One RCMP officer was particularly kind helping the family of four with their bags and saying ‘Its okay now, you’re safe.’ Another officer was on edge with the single man who walked across without stopping.
The border visit reports are written by the volunteers who were at the border on that day. There are about 15 active volunteers in our border visit committee.
