    As noted on the "current border wait times" page, please indicate units. Are wait times in minutes or people or vehicles?

    In the 2010 to 2014 file, there are conflicting entries such as the one shown below. Do they denote different lanes at the crossings? How do we interpret it? 247807 "Cornwall","Cornwall, ON","2014-01-21 17:53 EDT","No Delay","No Delay" 247808 "Cornwall","Cornwall, ON","2014-01-21 17:53 EDT","10 minutes","10 minutes"

    Thank you for your feedback. These duplicates can occur when system users make corrections to the wait times reported. Some are also due to system glitches "i.e. Missed Entry". Either way, only one record is correct. We are currently looking at options to improve our data extract for this dataset to only show the correct entries. We are now also publishing a change log for this dataset which you can access to view the latest changes we have made to the dataset. Thank you for helping identify this issue.

    Is it possible to get border crossing wait times for the years before 2010 (i.e. 2000 until 2009) as well?

    Hi Behzad, Thank you for your question. I have sent it to the data owner for action. Thanks, Tasha, the Open Government Team
