I have a son who lives in the Detroit area. A not so young anymore son. He is now twenty. The drinking age in Michigan is 21. The legal drinking age in Canada, you guessed it. Not 18. The drinking age in the majority of the Canadian provinces is 19.
You do the math.
So, of course, last year he had to travel to Canada to spend the weekend drinking with a group of friends. I was not happy. They drove across from the US, checked into a hotel, and started the weekend. That part, I was happy with, that they were not going to be driving. Of course since they had a vehicle with them, I did give the the name of an auto body shop ontario just in case. I try to cover all of my bases when it comes to the kids.
