We're looking to extend some services into Canada.  While our lawyers dig into it, I thought that I'd ask the hive mind about border restrictions.

For traffic routing, is anyone constraining cross-border routing between Canada and the US?  IOW, if you are routing from Toronto to Montreal, do you have to guarantee that the path cannot go through, say, Syracuse, New York?

I'm asking network operators about packet routing; data storage is a very different matter, of course.
