CCTV cameras, drones, smart grid spying technology, online surveillance, and massive police budgets not making you feel safe? Do not fret! The Canadian government is putting in over time to ensure that you can rest easy!
According to sunnewsnetwork.ca:
“Armed US border guards may soon be on Canadian soil in Fort Erie, ON, pre-inspecting commercial vehicles before they cross the Peace Bridge into America.
While details have not yet been determined, that’s one of the options being considered in a preliminary agreement that has been worked out between Canada and the U.S. to speed up traffic across the Peace Bridge.
The pilot agreement was announced earlier this week by New York Sen. Charles Schumer after year-long negotiations involving the U. S. Department of Homeland Security and its Canadian counterpart, Public Safety Canada.
The Peace Bridge and another unnamed international crossing will be the scene of the pilot project that begins in late December and will run for 18 months.
Schumer called the pilot program a two-way victory for both countries because it will speed up traffic across the bridge.”
In addition to the above listed programs we are also going to have a foreign law enforcement agency operating on Canadian soil, come December. I know what you all must be thinking. That added security and convenience, WOW! How could we go wrong?
I mean foreign law enforcement operating on Canadian soil may be a loss of sovereignty, it may be seen as a step towards the two nations “merging”, it may be classified as a turn towards a police state. But reduced wait times at the border are worth it! No?
That extra security is worth it no? I mean the TSA in America is doing such a bang up job, what do we have to worry about?
We have had so many terrorist attacks here in Canada and along our border. How could we say no to this?
