Abstract

As the U.S. has progressively tightened its border security, residents on U.S. Campobello Island and other parts of the Maine-New Brunswick border question policies that ignore local circumstances. Adjustments are particularly difficult on Campobello, where visiting a Canadian bank or office requires passing through customs at Lubec, driving an hour, and then waiting to cross the St. Croix at Calais. In Forest City, a tiny cross-border hamlet, the bridge connecting the two sides of the village is closed each afternoon and on Sundays, necessitating a 50-mile detour. Elsewhere, fishing guides and youth canoe trips can no longer crisscross between remote campsites.
