Good neighbor policy?

Today is your last day to get in to Mexico for free. That's right, starting July 1, most visitors to our southern amigo will be shelling out an extra 150 pesos just to get into the country.

The fee, which is a first for Mexico, translates into roughly $16. But to save you and your clients any inconvenience the money will be included in the price of your plane tickets.

Our neighbor to the north takes a somewhat more hospitable approach to visitors. Rather than soaking them at the border, Canada offers rebates to visitors who pay taxes on goods and services while on Canadian soil.

Now, if I had one neighbor who invited me to dinner and then slapped me with a cover charge at the door, I'd think twice before accepting future invites. Whereas, if I had another neighbor who had me in for a meal and then sent me home with all the left over scotch, why I'd hang out at their house any time. I feel a song coming on. I think it's called "Oh Canada."
