How I did it. Couple of months ago I came from California to Montreal with
some CP's bought from California Carnivores. I signed up for the customs that
I have plants and soil with me, and am not going to visit any farms or so
there. Customs official looked that paper and that was that.

I had the phytosanitary (or what they are?) papers from Calif. Carnivores
naturally with me.
