Dear US: Regarding that $5.50 fee, I believe I'm already paying that and then some

I think I'll take a pass on your $5.50 fee for Canadians entering the US after seeing this.

Between the USA Transportation Tax ($32.04); the US Agriculture Fee ($4.92); the Air Travellers Security Charge ($12.10); the US Passenger Facility Charge ($4.42); the September 11 Security Fee ($2.46) and the USA Immigration User Fee ($6.88), I think we're stimulating the US economy enough, dontcha think? This turns a regular round trip flight to Seattle from $439 to $566 (per person).

So does that mean you aren't coming to visit again.

It's our turn anyway.

Oh no. Darlene and I will never stop visiting the US. I'm just trying to make a point. We already pay a lot for our flights as you can see. Luckily, our drive to see you guys is much cheaper.
