    Got to decide tomorrow whether to go Canada or not. Any advice on the visa waiver form? Are they laxer than the US? I have limited resources, the situation could not be more urgent.

    Dude what do you need to get there, if you need to go? Is money the issue, or work, or flights, or the blummin visa? (Think Rutita1 has answered the visa one, and sounds positive).

    Can imagine little worse than being stuck the other side of the world when your son needs you. Hang in there.

    Canadian customs (and popo) v friendly ime, been a few times. One time I flew there for a dj gig, didn't have work permit due to a fuck up, got dropped in it at immigration by someone I was with (who had permit - generally you can blag it without) but got it sorted easily, quickly and politely. Unlike the USA from what I've heard.

    If you get a chance, go up the CN Tower. Yonge Street is worth a visit, sort of like the Camden equivalent. I did go to the "ghetto" where the drugs are but no idea what it's called or where :facepalm: Canadian people generally very kind and friendly.

    Eaton Center if you fancy downtown shopping - generally cheaper than here, some serious bargains to be had.

    Can try to get info from a local, just need to track him down first.

    Toronto is a great city. Hope your son recovers ASAP, best wishes to you both.

    Hope it all goes well :thumbs:

    The Canadians are actually a bit tighter than the seps on the Electronic Travel Authorisation. They actually ask if you've ever been arrested (for anything) whilst the Americans ask if you've been arrested for a crime involving "moral turpitude" (serious damage or serious harm), so one can truthfully answer "no" in more cases with the US ESTA than with the Canadian eTA. That said, usual rules apply; just say no to all the questions and you should be ok.

    Hope things work out.

    Have you contacted the embassy? Some countries have special assistance for people needing to travel in an emergency.

    Hope your son recovers quickly.

    Well it's all a lot better and I managed to sort stuff from here. He is out of hospital and is much better with a solid support structure in place.
