SO... four decades ago...
I am a US citizen who got drunk at a sanctioned Swiftsure (the premier NW race
out into the Pacific Ocean) pre-race event. I, as did many others, laid myself out on the dock
in Victoria,British Columbia
the night before Swiftsure as all we semi-professional sailors were doing our 1970s best to prepare ourselves for a 36 hour pounding.
A very nice, and I guess understanding, Victoria Police Officer helped me find my boat and then helped me stumble aboard.
Will the US not allow me into the States because I was picked up drunk by a Canadian officer or will the Canadians ignore the problem because I was not drunk in the US?
Even worse; I was finger printed many times while consulting with NASA, DoD, USPS, Customs
, Treasury, Canadian Customs
, and many law enforcement agencies.
Is there hope for me ever entering Canada
PS - since the Victoria event I have entered Canada
many hundreds of times.
