Many will be getting out of the house this weekend to travel to either North Dakota or Montana to get some shopping or last minute-holiday in before school starts next week.
The Canada Border Services Agency is expecting a busy weekend.. Spokesperson Jacquie Callan says there is one time that is best to avoid the potential of a long lineup and that is the morning.
She adds many are expected to come through the various crossings with over 7000 people being processed last Labour Day Weekend.
Callin says the best advice she can give to those making a trip to the U-S from Saskatchewan is to make sure when coming back that all paperwork is ready to go when arriving at the crossing of choice.
“If you have your i-d, your passport and the receipts of purchases with you when you arrive that will cut down on time.” Callin said.
While marijuana will be legal in just a few weeks in Canada, the CBSA reminds you it can’t be brought in or out of the country. Fines and charges can be issued to anyone trying to smuggle drugs across the border.
