    Getting a passport seems to be the primary holdup.

    That sucks! But I guess worth it in the long run. Hoping I'm not in for the same.

    Yeah, took me 4 hrs waiting in line back in February or so when I did it. No appointments for months, so only option was standing in line and waiting for a cancellation.

    So, hi from Toronto. Been here since yesterday.

    Shocked and amazed at how smoothly things went:
    • Nobody in front of me at check-in
    • Roughly 5 minutes to get through security
    • Not even 5 minutes to get my luggage at Pearson. Compare that to over an hour last time.
    Longest wait was the Tim's line.
