    Nor trouble for Canadians in a Canadian rental driving into the US.

    I found out trying to book a Zipcar in Seattle to drive a bunch of stuff to Vancouver that, as a Canadian resident, I can't drive a car with US plates into Canada, per Canadian customs. That if I stole a Zipcar or rental car would get me into a lot more trouble than trying to avoid taxes/duties doesn't matter at all. (I couldn't do it the other way around, because the Zipcar allowance for US cars is 200 mi/day, well over a one-way trip, and the allowance for Canadian cars is 200 km/day, which doesn't work.)

    Yes, they need to issue you a Canadian insurance card.

    No, this is for Skate Canada 2012 in October of 2012. Skate Canada 2013 would be more than a year from now.

    I know there are some rental car companies in Canada that don't allow their cars to be taken over the border.

    That's a really late announcement, isn't? Skate American was announced in May.

    I believe Skate Canada 2012 was announced in November 2011 when all event tickets went on sale.

    This was announced ages ago. Now we're discussing it. :lol:

    Right?

    In our honor, I assume?

    I have no idea how Skate Canada will fill select to replace Marley/Brubaker :(. I really enjoyed their skating and was looking forward to seeing their new programs.

    Any idea who will be selected to fill the spot?
