American Man turned away from border

An Ilinois man is speaking out after being denied entry into Canada at the Fort Frances border crossing last month. 55-year-old Paul Pepper was part of a bus tour headed for a fishing lodge near Dryden and was questioned about a criminal report dating back to 1972. Pepper claims charges laid were eventually dismissed, but was denied entry and forced to walk back to International Falls. Pepper has written to a variety of government agencies and the Canada Border Service Agency, but so far has not received any response.
