It was. A bit smaller than MTTS. Caused a bit of a border line up when we arrived, it caused the border crossing wait times to go from 10 minutes to about 1/2 hour.

Maybe it was just the checking for illegals.

The MINI in front of us had two flags on their window. They had a US flag and a Canadian flag. The US border guard had them pull into the US Customs office and they confiscated the Canadian flag.

That was so lame.
