I had reasons dealing with Canada tax laws for getting the SRRV as well as the issues that normally impact others in making the decision on SRRV or Tourist visa.
When I was here before staying on a tourist visa, I had just renewed when I had to go back to Canada, paid a few thousand for one extra day in country then on my return started the whole process over again.
