How To Ruin Tourism

Obama proposes fee for Canadian visitors to the U.S.

"President Barack Obama is floating the idea of charging a fee for every Canadian entering the U.S. by air or sea.

The proposal is outlined in the 2012 federal draft budget he submitted to Congress on Monday.

The $5.50 fee would not apply to visitors arriving in private vehicles.

Visitors from Canada, Mexico and a number of Caribbean countries are currently exempt from “passenger inspection fees.”

Obama's budget blueprint proposes lifting those exemptions and using the revenue from the charges to support air passenger inspections which have recently grown more intensive."

So the money that they'll force visitors to pay for the privilege of flying into a burgeoning third world police state will go towards an even more intrusive airport humiliation for those shelling out more money. Sweet!
