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

Think of it this way, Canada just got a new zoo. beerbong.gif rofl.gif

If that's not great wall of China totalitarian not sure what is. Is it really Canadians they want to keep out? Seems to me people in a fence are in prison.

It would be much cheaper to build such a fence on the southern border as it is much shorter:

Mexico – United States border's total length is 3,169 km (1,969 miles)
Canada – United States border is 8,891 kilometers (5,525 mi) long, including 2,475 kilometres (1,538 mi) shared with Alaska.

Just who's going to fund this fence?, Our tax dollars and the fence will never be built, just more pocket change for TPTB gaah.gif

Fund it hell, who's gonna build the damn thing? Not too many Mexicans up this way and the Canadians all want free healthcare.

I agree JR, it's more to keep us in. Too bad they didn't think about that before they let us have monster trucks.

Building the Texas/Mexico fence 1-of the companies hired to build it got in trouble for using illegal alien Mexicans. But if they just walked on the other side of the fence then they'd be back in Mexico chuckle.gifchuckle.gif

I think this idea would be great for Canada to keep the illegal American Aliens out of Canada.
