Linode has a nice little booth and t-shirts if you get a chance to hit up the expo.
entering Canada for business purposes is somewhat risky @hoopycat:
. -rt (at least the poutine is pretty great) entering Canada for business purposes is somewhat risky
So, they lied to the border guards about both the purpose of their visit, and the fact that they were bringing in merch, and got caught doing it. How does that make it risky to enter Canada for business purposes? They were tax dodging and made falsified statements to justify entering the country.
The moral of that story is clearly DO NOT LIE TO BORDER GUARDS and DON'T BE A FREAKING IDIOT, not "Entering Canada for business is risky."
EDIT: I should note that lying to DHS agents is just as risky as lying to CBSA agents…
And yes… compared to DHS, CBSA is pleasant to deal with.
DISCLAIMER: Outside of writing letters to the municipal water authority with regards possible cranial-rectal inversion in their accounts-receivable process and the usurious nature of their late fees and accusatory tone of their correspondence, most of my interaction with government officials involves CBSA or DHS. So I have opinions, but not enough of them to have facts.
