Sunday February 18th, 3.45 - 5.30 pm : Roxham Road, Champlain USA.
A mild day above freezing. A total of 16 (6 children and 10 adults) people crossed over into Canada. One person was from the Democratic Republic of Congo, several were from Nigeria and three were from Haiti. One Haitian woman told the RCMP officer that she had a friend in Canada and the officer told her to go to the Lacolle border because she would 'see her friend sooner'. Another officer was quite aggressive in her manner.
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.
