With summer officially underway, in late June most Americans are getting the bunting and fireworks ready for Independence Day on July 4. However, some among us like to head north to the wilds of Canada for outdoor adventures, sporting events, fries and gravy, and maybe even some of their infamous moonshine-like beer. So, with Canada Day right around the corner, it seems like as good a time as any to address one of the occasional inquiries we field from people who don't want to get turned away by the Mounties - especially in light of some changes in Canadian law this past year.
As the weather gets colder and the ground starts to freeze, families come together for the holiday season. As we fill our plates with turkey and mashed potatoes, the wine is often flowing as well. There's a lot to be thankful for, but sometimes the celebration goes too far.
