i can do some work with coffee, breakfast, lunch...... also i have 2 options, either my wife drop me off first thing in the morning or i can spend 2 hours on public transportation to get to the airport later.

Now that CATSA has the ability to validate / authenticate boarding passes, I wonder how long before they begin restrict airside access until xx hrs prior to flight time?

LOL....dunno, all i know is some foreign stations only open their counters 4 hours before departure.....

but there are also other lounges that allow sleeping (SQ/SIN) or massage (TG/BKK) or have a sit down dinner...... ohhh VS the best, hair cut everything.....

anyways.....if anyone need access into the Int'l MLL or would like to meet....msg here.

Highly doubt it, if they wanted to they could have done it before when they manually looked at boarding passes. If wait times were becoming a serious issue maybe, but they've greatly improved in the last while.

i believe they "may" do it if the building or satellite is close to capacity

At YYC, there are very verbose signs up about passengers not being allowed in to the trans-border area more than two hours before departure.

Of course, I've gone in as much as 2h30m before departure while connecting from YEG, so I'm not quite sure what the point of the signs are? :confused:

Those banners are up from a year and a half ago when it would routinely take two hours to get through customs/security into the TB area without Nexus. I think it was more of a CBP decision than a CATSA decision.
