If they closed a consulate would anyone notice
Why Canada would have a consulate in Buffalo staggers the imagination. Principally it would help lazy Canadian companies transfer production to the USA without ever really leaving home. If you needed a passport or Visa could that not be handled at the Border, zero miles from downtown Buffalo?
No, lets rent two full floors of the most expensive building in Buffalo, and we need 8 upscale houses to house the workers. OMG
I have been on a handful of trade missions with the Canadian government, but really aside from handing out passports and visa’s what do they do? The expense based upon the Star article must be in the billions per year. We have five in Mexico alone. Take a look at the list, I think I found gravy.
