IMHO absolutely crucial. There is no difference in what you'll see (it's
the same gorge beneath the falls) and why give the Canadians the tourist
dollars? (No slight intended to our Canadian brethren, but) NF NY USA is
a chronically depressed area economically and ought to be the place
where this outing is undertaken-from. Furthermore, needless border
crossing at this uncertain time == bad thinking.
