Off topic, but does anyone when know when (the year) they started requiring this? I remember them talking about it after 9/11, but I went up to Windsor in 2005 without a passport.
My parents went to Alaska in the summer of 2007. They had ordered passports, but they came the day after they left. They were allowed to pass through Canada due to a grace period that was agreed upon by the two countries because of the number of people applying for passports due to the new law.
Based on this, I'm going to guess the summer of 2007.
Heck, I've never had a passport and I've lived in Canada, although that was back when the Leafs were Stanley Cup Champions, so that may have changed things.
