DUI's, are considered felonies
DUI's are considered felonies in Canada, no matter how long ago they occurred. I know people who have not drank for twenty years, have gone across the border countless times for business reasons, and one day get checked, they run a drivers license check, and thats it, they can no longer go into Canada even for work until they jump thru all the hoops. If they don't they face a life time ban and if they try to get in again and get caught they face jail. Granted I could just ride to the border and chances are I probably wouldn't get checked and they would wave me thru. But there is no garauntee of that and what a hassle if you get caught. I love Canada and do want to travel there again, but not under the fear of worrying about being caught and be "exported" back to the states....
