Please allow me to switch countries for a second. I've heard a rumour that Canada will be lengthening their non-visa entry time period from 90 days to 180 days at the beginning of next year. Has anyone else heard this news?

Here's something in print about the US allowing Taiwanese 90 days visa free in the 2nd half of next year (hints at that date). When that happens Taiwan will at a minimum reciprocate.
