Default Crossing the US/Canada border with a criminal record

We at NOTO have been providing information to people who are interested in coming to Canada, but are uncertain what they will encounter at the border, because they have a committed a minor offence. We have produced this video and there are a few other links that you can share on this forum that will go a long way in fostering a better understanding of the process. If someone is still uncertain they can still call us anytime tool free: 1800-665-5787

I have a felony arrest for drugs whilst in college that was adjudicated to a stay of imposition in the early 70's. After crossing the border for many years & even having a Remote Border Crossing Permit, I was stopped @ the border, going into Ca & questioned about it 4 yrs ago. They let me pass thru but asked me to retrieve the court records and probation report if I planned on returning to Canada, aye.
As I live within 2 hrs of the MN/ONT border and I was planning on returning, I sent off for the paperwork requested and rode my MC to the border to see if all was fine one afternoon. After approx 1 hr. of questions of the exact dates of those events, of which I could not remember, (35 yrs ago? really?), I was told that it's all good.
Crossing back into MN, when asked my reason for visiting Ca, I gave a brief recap of my decades old bust and had just crossed to see if I had satisfied the canucks as far as my FBI arrest record was concerned. After looking @ my passport I was told have a safe ride home.
I now have crossed a dozen times since then and have had 0 issues.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Man I've crossed, back and forth, close to 100 times. I don't ever remember any rude behavior on either side. The US Customs is (sometimes) full of themselves. But it may be their training - pretend to be tough. Canadians are always very polite - though professional.

My only gripe was a return to the USA about 6-8 years ago... They put me, my friend, my truck and boat into their X-Ray quonset. If they want to search me, that's their business. But I don't think I should be subjected to X-Rays without permission. I don't care what they do to the truck/boat. Just leave me out of those X-Rays. I get enought of them as it is.
