Segment 1: Limits on Flagpoling at Border Crossings Host
Canada has started to limit the practice of flagpoling at 12 ports of entry. For those who may not know, flagpoling is a legal procedure that allows people on temporary residence permits to get same-day immigration services by exiting and re-entering Canada within a 24-hour period. This is usually done at specific land border crossings.
