I am a Canadian resident. I recently crossed into the U.S. as part of my vacation and will be re-entering Canada after 4 days in the U.S.
When I entered the U.S, I already had alcohol in my RV (which I did declare since the border crossing guard asked when I entered the U.S) This alcohol was purchased in Canada. When I re-enter Canada, I will be bringing back the same alcohol that I initially purchased in Canada. I did not purchase any alcohol in the U.S. My question is: Will the alcohol that I purchased in Canada and brought into the U.S. need to be declared as part of my exemption amount being "imported" into Canada when I return to Canada? I didn't think it would since it was already purchased in Canada.
