Subject: Re: Passports to visit U.S.?
Sue, While it may not be absolutely necessary to have a passport when crossing the Canada-U.S. border, we find it the best identification to use. Border guards and Immigration officials immediately recognize a passport.

An added bonus, is that in some states you don't have to pay sales tax on items if you can show a valid passport to the sales clerk!

Besides, why not have a current passport at all times so you can take advantage of last-minute plans to travel the world? Lucy, Toronto
