Passport to be required to enter Canada

U.S. Sen. Mark Begich’s office is reminding Alaskans that they’ll need a passport or other approved documentation to cross the international border to Canada, starting June 1.
The change stems from a 2004 law requiring U.S. citizens and foreign nationals to present such documents when entering the United States by land or sea.
The law goes into effect in June.
Begich says in a written statement that “in the post 9/11 world, there are many new restrictions designed to keep us safe.”
In addition to a valid passport, acceptable documents include a Trusted Traveler Card or a Passport Card.
