Dear Canadian friends..
I did a search, but can't find a clear answer..
Are there any implications or formalities in transiting from the US, through Canada, to another country on a different airline? If one were to fly DL SLC-YVR and transfer to CX YVR-HKG, what's in store at YVR? Is it as simple as going through Canadian customs, then out to the CX counter to check-in?
