2006. I crossed the border betwen montanna and alberta and for some reason although I required a passport getting in, on the way back to Canada I just drove through. No passport or anything. I don't remember why.
this story is total scam started by a reporter yesterday which has spread around the world now. Reish didn't contact the media, didn't think nor claim he believed it was the iPad which got him through, some journalist invented that part, and now on its second day, youtube has videos showing him getting through the border by waving an iPad, Globe and Mail is running headlines saying 'Man gets through border with wave on an iPad', and Martin Reich is getting crucfied as a media hound.
In 500 stories on google I can't find a single reference to Reisht contacting the media nor a single quote where he says he thinks it is the iPad which got him through (it was his drivers license). The whole iPad angle is contrived, and not necessarily by Riesh. This site now says 'the border officer scanned the iPad' which he didn't and was never reported...The thing just keeps getting more twisted LOL.
This is the single biggest scam in reporting I've seen in a while, and I hope some people start asking questions. The story is, a guy forgot his passport but had his drivers license, which the border officer accepted. That's it. I really hope they crucify the original reporter or at least clear up who the heck started the story. For all we know a reported picked it up off of a casual blog or something, and why would Reish - who DID NOT THINK THE IPAD was what GOT HIM THROUGH, call the media about what he thought was a non-story.
However, it's a complete non-story that he got back into Canada.
I've personally gotten into Canada in the past with just a photocopy of my birth certificate, and didn't get back home without a lengthy chastisement from the US border guard for not having better ID.
Hell, the only time I know of that someone got stopped going into Canada is when the Canadian border guard stopped my cousin in order to ask if she could give him bagpipe lessons. And this is after four years of college a 30 minute drive from the border, and a younger legal drinking age.

The articles are pretty much trollbait and everyone devours them like sheep.
