Getting more and more complicated, isn't it.

Just what we all need, border agents, who already think they are god, with even more power.

This is disturbing.

I don't know what is more disturbing, that our government would consider such a thing or that people are so desperate to get into Canada that they will walk cross country through North Dakota and Manitoba in the middle of winter.

In defence of the refugees, they probably have no idea what risks they are running as they likely have never experienced that type of cold. The Canadian federal government, on the other hand, should know better. It is such a stupid idea you would think Harper was still in power.

It kinda made sense under Obama, probably would've been tolerable under Clinton, but under Trump it's intolerable.

-- Steve's hoping the bill gets quietly killed, but thinks there are too many interests lined up behind easier access to the US for that to happen.

I've been harassed at the border by power-drunk US Customs guys, and I think this is fucking terrifying. I'm going to get on my MP about it today, but I think he's a know-nothing and a wet paper bag on these issues. *sigh*

Looks like I may have to perma-boycott going to the US for any reason other than compelled business travel.

Yay. My home state is in the news again.

Pre-clearance, which already caused me to miss my plane (everyone kept assuring me I had plenty of time), just gets worse.
