    Need some suggestions on this matter

    Hi,
    I need some expert suggestions.
    I was convicted of DWI 5 years ago and had done my term in rehab. Now I am a changed person and want to start my life on new terms.
    I have got a good job opportunity in Vancouver, Canada. I have some friends and family there. I really needed a change of place and all are of the opinion that this is a good opportunity for me.
    However, since I am convicted of a DWI, I will have to go through a lot of procedures to enter Canada. I have heard that after 5 years if you do not have any other records, your records will be waived.
    I wish to know about Canadian pardon applications and the procedures. How long does the whole procedure take?
    Please help me with this. Thank you.

    Buddy of mine had to go through Canadian "rehabilitation / pardon" procedure. Start now, and do exactly what they ask of you.

    I believe it cost him like $500 for admin fees(?)

    Another buddy tried to "sneak" across the boarder (we fished north of Dryden every year). Of course they had him in database when he tried to cross boarder, and denied entry. He thought could hit another boarder crossing...and they snagged him again...threatened to throw him in jail if he tried sneaking across.

    It's actually really easy. Just declare yourself as a refugee.

    I will never forget when I pulled up to the gate to get into Ontario in my truck and the border agent asked to see our passports and drivers license and my buddy looked at me and said " I didn't bring my drivers license" the border agent leaned out his window and said "Is your name bob Johnson?" and my buddy said said "ya how do you know that?" and the border agent looked at him and smiles and said "because your license is in this vehicle somewhere...."
