bus rides in canada
    #4414759 - 07/17/05 02:42 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

Hey people. I'm going to this festival in a week and there is the option of getting there by bus. I havent used the buses here and I was wondering during or before the trip, do they search bags in quebec and ontario? If anyone who has knowledge on this issue comment, I'll be grateful.

Im from Toronto and have taken many buses to and from Montreal. What kind of bus are you taking? I have taken the VIA, GO, and GREYHOUND and have never been searched before.

i've gone with greyhound from michigan to toronto - and then from toronto to peterborough. didn't get searched at all, either there or back (although at the us/canadian border i did have to take my bag off the bus, and walk with it through customs - they briefly opened my bag, opened my discman and the customs man said "ahh shit you're listening to p-funk? step on through, brotha." hehe seriously!

You will be fine then. With the greyhound you put your bags on the bus yourself. If you find them too big to carry on to your seat with you, you put them in the compartments under the bus yourself. If you are staying IN canada you will not get searched. If you take the bus back over the border to the US thats another story.

Acid doesn't give you truths; it builds machines that push the envelope of perception. Whatever revelations came to me then have dissolved like skywriting. All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.

hehehe it was hillarious. the only they questioned me about was a big bag of Yerba Mate i had in my backpack - but they didn't seem too concerned about it. i wish i knew the hours that that customs man worked - i'd be smuggling mad drugs across the border, just making sure to wear a George Clinton t-shirt. :lol:




(note - i'm not serious about the smuggling drugs. far too stressful of an occupation for me!)
