We re-entered at Buffalo, a few days later, within 3 minutes of pulling up to the booth.

One of my acquaintances in Winnipeg told me that there's very little U.S. tourist activity in the city anymore because the border crossings have become too much of a hassle. Unfortunately I think too many Americans have never stepped outside their own boundaries, and are so myopic that they don't care about the experiences people have to go through when doing so.

Utterly ridiculous what you have to go through to come back to your OWN country. When I returned at the NY crossing, it was ridiculous (But not even close to as invasive as yours). Going into Canada - 20 minutes (I had a carnet, so I had to register that). Coming back into the US - 2 hours. My recent trip to Poland - going through Canada, Germany and Poland - maybe 20 minutes in Canada, 10 in Germany and no time in Poland (granted, I was already in the EU). Coming back - 10 minutes in Germany, 10 minutes in Canada and then through US customs - about 2 hours. Totally concur. Utterly ridiculous what you have to go through to come back to your OWN country.
