A Smooth Border Entry?

There's Canada on the other side. I am ready with passport and an official letter from Thompson Rivers University outlining the terms of my Scholar Award

 

But the agent inside had a narrower reading of the work exception listed, and at first was firm that I would not be let in.

 

After an hour of looking things up on computer screens, conferring with colleagues, I was granted entrance (after buying a work permit).

 

Whew! I was not sure what to do if I had to turn back.
