Sunday November 18, 2018. Afternoon at Roxham Road, USA.
It was a humid and cold day. While we were there only three people crossed into Canada. Although just as we were turning into Roxham Road we saw a taxi leaving so we did miss those who came in the taxi.
At about 3.30 pm a taxi brought a woman who spoke little English or French. She repeated the word “Arabic" several times. She crossed safely into Canada. Shortly after another taxi arrived (from the train station) and two single men crossed. They were from Eritrea and Sudan. One did not listen to the RCMP’s instructions and kept walking over the border. We don't know if he understood what was being said to him. Before going into the RCMP building one of them waved to the taxi driver, who took a picture to send ‘home’. No one needed any mitts nor hats. The RCMP behaved appropriately with all those who entered Canada.
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.
