I am not going to get into a pissing war w/ anyone. I don't know what your circumstances are & you don't know mine. If I want one by the end of the week, I can make it happen. And if you think that the budget for Customs will allow them to expand their duties any further, you are dreaming. Canadian customs already has it's hands full w/ trying to keep up w/ the US' rediculous allegations hold-ups & confusion that a handful of cars that are safe enough for road use but here illegally is not a priority. Where do you think they are going to get extra resources for tracking down & destroying illegal vehicles, let alone to fight the inevitable law suits that will arise from them. It's a program that sounds good if it could happen (which I hope does) but in reality is far less likely to ever get off the ground. This same kind of scenario happened in the 70's & 80's w/ US specific model cars, before the FTA. They couldn't keep up then w/ more resources & public support, what makes you think that it will happen now w/ more stringent budgets & more public apathy?
