ANTICIPATION the 64th World Science Fiction Convention in Montreal
I'm planning to go to this con next week. It's main emphasis is literary, but they do give out the Hugos for Dramatic Presentation Long and Short Form. Doctor Who has won the short form for the last three years. Anyway, this is more a shout out to people who may have traveled to Canada recently or who may live in Canada and know about such things. I have heard rumors that, because of changes in Canadian copyright protection laws, laptops, iPods and iPhones may be inspected at the border for content, and if it is considered "illegal", they may be confiscated. I can stand to leave my laptop and my iPod at home, but I really need my iPhone, as it is my cell phone and I need it to keep in touch with my family while I'm gone. I emailed the Canadian consulate, but they just gave me a web site (no help) and a phone number. Any advice? Thanks!
