Sunday, December 1st 2019. Afternoon at Roxham Road, USA.
A cold, wintry day. We arrived at about 3:30 pm and waited for about an hour.
Finally one taxi arrived, bringing two men who had got off the bus in Plattsburgh. They were from Nicaragua and Venezuela, and grateful for the scarves we gave them and for the friendly welcome. The bus had been delayed because of a snowstorm, and other buses had been cancelled according to the taxi driver.
The RCMP reception was according to protocol and relaxed/friendly. We left at 4:50 pm.
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.
