    Default Fence across the US/Canada border

    I think you guys might be worried about the wrong border.

    The United States is looking at building fences along the border with Canada to help keep out terrorists and other criminals.

    The U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency has proposed the use of “fencing and other barriers” on the 49th parallel to manage “trouble spots where passage of cross-border violators is difficult to control.”

    The border service is also pondering options including a beefed-up technological presence through increased use of radar, sensors, cameras, drones and vehicle scanners. In addition, it might continue to improve or expand customs facilities at ports of entry.

    The agency considered but ruled out the possibility of hiring “significantly more” U.S. Border Patrol agents to increase the rate of inspections, noting staffing has already risen in recent years.

    The proposals are spelled out in a new draft report by the border service that examines the possible environmental impact of the various options over the next five to seven years.

    Customs and Border Protection is inviting comment on the options and plans a series of public meetings in Washington and several U.S. border communities next month. It will then decide which ideas to pursue.

    If things don't start improving down here, I might start singing O Canada myself.

    Legally of course.

    I am sure you guys need bean counters up there too.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Come to think of it, this might be the most outside the box solution to the US immigration problem I've ever seen. Building a fence between the States and Mexico and deporting millions of people is too hard. So, you build a fence between Canada and Mexico and then all the Americans move North and leave the Mexicans by themselves in the former United States. This Obama is a genius.

    PS - make sure to pack a warm coat.

    stay out of Quebec and won't have to deal with her. But the strip joints in Montreal are world class. Might be worth putting up with the occassional Celine song.

    Don't forget about Beiber (sp?).

    We should have built it after Rush, even Shania Twain isn't hot enough to make up for Celine.

    'Bout time.

    Imagine the look on Shatner's face when an immigration official pulls him over, "May I see some proof of citizenship, sir?"
    "Yes... of... course... it's... right... here..." (reaches into his coat pocket, but then suddenly speeds off and tries to escape)

    In the words of the great Homer Simpson, " Canada has never had a girlfriend. Just sayin..."
