Two activists traveling from NYC to Quebec City were removed from a passenger train
today after being told, "You're not getting into Canada."

Other passengers appeared to have been taken off the train as well, and the entire train
"seemed to be swarming with immigration agents and police." The activists weres taken
to an immigration office. They were interrogated for
over an hour, photographed, and all documents in their possession were photographed
as well.

Canadian immigration's practice appears in many cases to be to detain persons for 48
hours in a detention facility before letting them see someone. In this case, however, the
activists were released on the American side after just a few hours with immigration.
More news and fuller details
as they come in.
