En route to an exchange at McGill University, immigration-undesirable Tim Forster gets bounced from the Canadian border.
It was by forgetting this principle of “seeming trustworthy” that at that very same US/Canada border, I unwittingly caught myself in an immigration pickle about a month ago, by getting deported from Canada, en route to a university exchange there. Whether I was actually subject to “deportation” or its growth-stunted, lesser cousin “denial of entry” is a point of contention, as I barely entered Canada. Rather, I tickled its orifice heavily with the phallus of my passport. Regardless, let’s just roll with “deportation”, because officially, I was unwillingly transported off Canadian territory by authorities.
