I hate to steer away from the 30 year old discussion of a bridge to Gravina, but another hot topic has been addressed to travelers in Canada and the Lower 48. I would like some factual information and background on this.

What is all this hoopla about passports being needed to travel between Alaska and Candada? I have read various theories on it, and conversed with others. However, nobody tells the same story. What's up?

I have contacted Senators Murkowski and Stevens' office, and Congressman Don Young. However, I have had no response yet.

Can anybody shed any intelligent facts on this?

Thank you.

P.S. No Christmas tree in Ketchikan? Go Jacuie Meck. I agree with you. There's still a 4th of July Parade isn't there?
