I need someone in Syracuse, NY who would be willing to receive a
totally legal, fully documented, fully insured, customs-free,
tax-free religious ceremonial object for pick-up by a very nice
I'm confused here, Janet. Syracuse is quite a ways from the bridge
over to Canada. The Buffallo, NY area is closer, over at Niagara
Falls. The nearest other crossing is going to be way up at the
norteast end of Lake Ontario where it empties into the St. Lawrence.
There are also two entry points from Ontario into Michigan, one down
in Detroit, the other up at Port Huron about a third of the way up
the state. You need someone on the American side, right? Then someone
from Canada is going to drive over to pick in up, right? Wouldn't
they be asked to declare it coming across back into Canada? Of
course, sometimes they just ask, "did you buy anything in the U.S.?"
But I'm sure a Canadian returning to Canada wouldn't get many
questions anyway. I'm an hour or so south of Syracuse myself so this
caught my eye.
