    Lasik or laser vision correction in the Dominican Republic

    The technology is very different and much more expensive. I have the beginnings of cataracts and presbyopia. I currently wear bifocals. I‘m getting corrective lens replacement surgery. They remove the natural lens and replace it with either an artificial single focus lens or a multi focus lens...

    Toronto Layover flying into POP

    I don’t know if you have the option of flying through Montreal to get to POP. Less confusion than Toronto and shorter waiting lines. Friends of mine went through last week.

    Chartered jet retained at PUJ after suspected shipment found on board

    I doubt it. Probably not wise given current conditions in Haiti. I don’t know if they would have the support of a Canadian Consulate representative in Haiti. More to the point, that would insinuate they are guilty and it would be hard for them to enter Canada. They would be remanded into custody...

    Chartered jet retained at PUJ after suspected shipment found on board

    I get the impression the PN rely more on the atrocious prison conditions to get a guilty confession than their investigation skills.

    Chartered jet retained at PUJ after suspected shipment found on board

    At least, in the US, they could expect fair treatment from the DEA, competent legal representation, detention in a properly run prison, a bail hearing, and an eventual resolution to the problem. The DR justice system is a crapshoot and the PN don’t have a reputation for their forensic...

    Chartered jet retained at PUJ after suspected shipment found on board

    Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. Google CBC, Pivot airlines news. The flight crew speaks about the horrific treatment they received in the DR prison and their concerns for their safety if they are sent back there.

    Chartered jet retained at PUJ after suspected shipment found on board

    According to the CBC, the justice department is appealing their release from prison to a guarded apartment facility. Pivot Airlines is paying for the apartment security because the crew has been threatened by people involved in the illegal transport of drugs. While in prison, a dead body was...

    No more Covid test required for entry to USA

    The National Covid tracking app was shut down yesterday by the Canadian government and the travel industry is pressuring the government to eliminate the Travel Canada app. The Covid restrictions are being eliminated despite the predictions of another significant outbreak worldwide in the fall.

    Chartered jet retained at PUJ after suspected shipment found on board

    My gut feeling is the problem will be resolved in a few months after enough money passes hands and before the start of the Canadian tourist/snowbird winter migration to the DR. The latest justice department effort to place the crew back in prison is just another attempt to extort money from the...

    No more Covid test required for entry to USA

    That’s your take on what’s been said. My take is it will not be reinstated. If major Covid spikes start to occur in other countries, travellers to and from those countries may be subject to random testing again on arrival at Canadian airports and they may be required to show vax passes again...

    No more Covid test required for entry to USA

    The Canadian random Covid testing requirement for returning travellers is gone and I highly doubt it will be in effect again unless Covid infections spike significantly worldwide. The Canadian government will also be eliminating the vaccine travel mandate today. No more proof of vaccinations to...

    Pre-Marital Assets

    Correct and very insightful mi amigo. The eternal male conflict between the big head and the little head. The symptoms are easily recognizable but the disease can only be cured with massive amounts of cash dispensed to lawyers followed by an extended healing period of emotional wound licking and...

    Pre-Marital Assets

    The short answer is she will be entitled to half your assets in the DR whether you marry her or cohabitate with her. You not marrying her. Your marrying her and her extended family. If any family members need medical attention or money for other reasons, be prepared to open your wallet. You will...

    Monkey Pox

    Not surprised Chico. After their windfall Covid profits, Big Pharma will do the same for any new or old viruses that come along. Especially for a fear induced virus like Monkeypox. It’s overkill really because effective vaccines already exist. This is a shameful designer vaccine to line Big...

    Monkey Pox

    Actually I do as well as other media sources. For medical data I rely on the research in the LANCET and JAMA sites as opposed to the WHO and CDC sites where political bias can taint the interpretation of their research.
