Another in my series on keycards

I found this card on the ground for the Sheraton on the Falls. I would love to try that Fallsview Buffet!

From the Buffalo News:

Will Canada start listening now? With border backups attracting attention across the country and pressure rising at all levels of government, perhaps Ottawa will finally act to defuse a problem that poses economic perils on both sides of the border.

The problem, which has been evident at various times all summer, repeated itself late last month as Canadians returning home from the Kanye West concert in Buffalo encountered not only long lines at the border crossing in Fort Erie, but the additional insult of watching booths closing as agents packed up for the night. An unnecessarily long wait was thoughtlessly extended.

Canadian authorities have been made aware of the problem. Yet nothing improves.

Last week I received the latest email newsletter from the Falls Avenue Resort.

From Niagara at Large:

Congressman Brian Higgins is encouraged that progress will be made to address staffing issues on the border between the United States and Canada following today’s Northern Border Caucus meeting in Washington, D.C. with Canadian Ambassador David MacNaughton.

Prior to the meeting with the entire caucus, the Congressman and the Ambassador met briefly and discussed the specific staffing and the resulting traffic problems at the Niagara River crossings.

From HowStuffWorks.com:

All that majesty, power and water didn’t stop Oscar Wilde from quipping about Niagara Falls being the second disappointment in the married life of many American brides who spend their honeymoon there, after he visited it in 1882. Can’t please everyone? Take this quiz to see how much you know about the natural feature.

I took the quiz and got 26 out of 30.

From the Norwich (Connecticut) Bulletin:

With the economy making the U.S. dollar worth almost a third more across our northern border, now is a great time to grab your passport and escape to Canada’s Niagara Region for a chance to view the beauty and power of Niagara Falls, the collective name for the three waterfalls on the Niagara River that drain Lake Erie into Lake Ontario.

Straddling the international border between New York State and the province of Ontario, the Niagara Falls were formed during the last ice age as water from the newly formed Great Lakes made its way to the Atlantic Ocean approximately 25,000 to 21,000 years ago. Renowned for both their beauty and as a valuable source of hydroelectric power, Horseshoe Falls, the American Falls, and Bridal Veil Falls are a true wonder to see and well worth the time spent getting there.
