A U.S. family who told border officials they were transiting British Columbia between Alaska and the lower 48 states has been kicked out of Canada, after being caught vacationing in Vancouver.
Public Safety Minister Mike Farnworth said the family entered B.C. on Aug. 25 from Alaska, and was found to be on holiday in Vancouver on Aug. 29.
It was not immediately clear how much the family was fined, but the act provides for fines of up to $750,000 in fines and/or imprisonment of up to six months.
