Ottawa, Dec 4 (Canadian-Media): U.S. doubling of its long-term ban for Canada entering the U.S. was a blow to the number of travellers from Canada to U.S., revealed by a new data, media reports said.
According to statistics provided by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), there has been an almost 100 per cent increase compared with the previous 12-month period. But CBP offered no explanation for the surge in expedited removals.
About 25 million round-trips were made by Canadian residents by vehicle to the U.S. from January to September 2019, a decline of 3.6 percent from the same period in 2018.
