Forty-three years after its official opening, Pier 21 closed. A gateway to Canada, one in five Canadians has a connection to Pier 21 in Halifax, N.S. Roughly one million immigrants were welcomed through its doors between 1928 and 1971. Sadly, the largest import turned away at the border was sausage, the most popular carry-on. Those border guards sure loved a good cookout.
