Yesterday I came back from USA Chicago to Canada and finished attending my cousin funeral. That stupid girl at the border asked me if I have anything. As I always I say I have only 2 cheese that is worth only 60 dollars. She closed her window and after 10 seconds. She tells me I wil let you in no need to tax you this time but I put note. I said what dam note? My mom grabbed my hand and said don't argue with her. What the hell she means by she put note? I drove to USA over 13 times and came back all the times I say I have the 2 cheese and they say drive safe bye bye. Can someone explain what she meant by putting a note?

Because the cheese was worth $60. The Canada Border control site says the permitted limits for cheese to be:

Dairy products (for example: cheese, milk, yogurt, butter)
  • Up to 20 kilograms per person
  • Over $20.00 may be subject to high rates of duty

I don't think it will matter at all. Probably the only time it would be raised again is if you were caught bringing in goods in excess of what their limits are a second time. In that scenario they would probably say 'well it's your second offence and so this time we're gonna fine you'

I don't think it's anything sinister :)
