The rule changed, but not all Canadian Border agents know that. The bins at International Falls have had a lot of fisherman's potatos.

Just a few thoughts about the folks at the borders. The Homeland Security Customs and Border Protection format of 2003 has been shared with many of the British Commonwealth and other countries around the world. This program trains officers primarily in Immigration Laws and then Customs/Duty Laws making Inspectors/Officers Masters of None. At the US side, officers establish citizenship requirements first, followed by either agriculture questions or then custom's questions. The agriculture part depends on locality and Northern border charts provided as a guideline for referrals. Agriculture Officers are specialist and work mostly in the secondary areas for referrals. The last aspect is the officer's experience or maturity level, which may explain the need for many questions. Most officers are listening for that one little discrepancy to continue the inspection or just pass you on through. In BC Canada, they have employed summer college students or reservist and they can be pretty intense. Officer achievements are often reflected by successful results in the national database. The stories, deception and attitudes for day at the border can make for a good TV series, eh!
