U.S. passport rule draws fire
TORONTO (CP) ? Canadians will soon require a passport to enter the United States as Washington pushes forward with a controversial homeland security measure that critics fear could choke off tourist traffic from both sides of the border.

?It?s going to be the casual visitor, the spontaneous visitor, the ordinary citizen who will be injured by this,? former U.S. congressman John Lafalce said from Buffalo, N.Y., a short drive from the busy Peace Bridge border crossing at Fort Erie, Ont.
