The Role Of The Canadian Consulate

The Canadian Consulate performs functions similar to that of the Canadian Embassy. However, the Consulate performs functions on a smaller scale. Each Canadian Consulate is located in a major tourist town. Consulates handle issues considered to be too minor for the Embassy. This includes the issuing of Visas that allow you to enter the country legally and making sure that you are safe for the duration of your stay. The Consulate also manages trade relationships between Canada and other countries. The Consul General is always the senior officer of the Consulate and the Consul General must approve all decisions first. This is done to protect you and ensure that as a tourist you are treated fairly for the duration of your visit to Canada.

  • 4 Sleeper Cab Features That Are Ideal For Book Lovers

    Posted by Ann Roth on May 4, 2016

    Living the life of a truck driver often gives you a lot of downtime and rest stop parking sessions. Instead of staring out into the the world of pavement, many drivers enter fictional worlds through a variety of books. If you love to read while traveling on the road, then you want a truck that accommodate your needs and has a variety of features. When shopping for heavy trucks with sleeper cabs, there are four features that can cater directly to reading. Work with a truck dealer to find trucks with as many of these features in a single sleeper cab as possible. USB Ports & Plugs Today’s reading is a lot different than it used to be. Instead of reading individual books, you can have access to hundreds of books on a tablet or e-reader device. Help keep those devices powered by purchasing a sleeper cab with extra USB ports and outlets. These outlets are typically powered by an APU unit in the truck. These units provide a separate source of power other than using the main engine. While you read, the ports can charge your device and give you hours of reading.  The USB ports can also be used for different reading accessories. For example, you can purchase a USB book light to provide extra illumination while reading books and magazines. Wireless Internet Connections If you’re using a tablet or e-reader, then you will likely want an internet connection to help you browse book stores and download new titles. A number of sleeper cabs can be purchased with internet connections built into them. These connections vary from...

  • How To Get A Cheap Hotel Room At The Last Minute

    Posted by Ann Roth on Sep 8, 2014

    If you like to travel, you probably know that hotel accommodations tend to eat up a lot of the budget for your trip. When planning a last-minute trip, it can actually pay off to be so spontaneous. Here are some tips on getting a great deal on hotels with very little to no notice. Don’t Call the Hotel… With One Exception If you call a hotel directly, particularly more than a day in advance of your arrival, chances are great that the reservations department will quote you the rack rate, which is the price of the room without any discounts included. Depending on the time of year that you’re traveling, this rate might be quite high. The only exception to this rule is if it is after check-in time on the day that you plan to arrive. If, for example, check-in is at 3:00 pm and it’s after dinnertime, you could call to find out what the lowest possible rate for a room is. At this point of the day, the management will realize that a discounted rate is better than leaving the room unoccupied for the night. Show Up in Person A more effective way of getting a cheap hotel at the very last minute is to simply walk in and ask to speak to the manager. The last thing the manager wants you to do is turn around and walk out of the hotel, so he or she is likely to work with you on price. Offer a rate that is 10 or 20 percent lower than the rack rate and see what he or she says....
