My friend Maria Martinez visited northern Vermont but could not enter Canada because even though she was born in the United States seventy years ago -- she had her birthday during this visit -- the U.S. government rejected her application for a passport because she was not born in a hospital.
But the librarian in Barton, Vermont, Toni Eubanks, suggested that she step across to the Quebec side of the Haskell library in Derby Line, so that is what she did. Here is a picture of dear Maria on the Canadian side of the Haskell Library, her only way to visit Quebec:
