Well if it confirms the Politico story then that looks a better source than some of the others out there.

The woman suspected of sending the ricin letter to the White House was arrested at the US/Canada border in New York trying to cross back into the US, she certainly made it easy for them to arrest her.

I am still waiting on them to identify the suspect, haven't seen if she is Canadian, US Citizen, both, or another nationality. Apparently she also had a gun in her car when the border officers arrested her, oh well by going to the border and trying to cross into the US, she saves Canada a lot of time and effort, no need for an extradition process.

Well the US did put up 4km of 3 foot high wire fencing along part of the border here in BC, questionable if its money well spent.

According to the man in charge of the area, this 3 foot tall wire fence is supposed to protect the US and Canada from , trans-national criminal organizations crossing illegally.

"Trans-national criminal organizations have capitalized on this vulnerable area by smuggling both narcotics and people. The enhancement to this specific border area mitigates the threat posed by these dangerous criminal enterprises.”:

Apparently also against a treaty signed way back in the establishing the border, neither country is supposed to put up a physical barrier or such within 10 feet of the border, or 5 feet, something around that distance..

That's nice. They do have this one too.

So why does Trump want to put up 20 metre fences on the Mexican border if 3 foot ones work on the Canadian one? Presumably Mexicans are considered better climbers.

It's just stupid waste of money, how anyone at any level of government thinks this 3 foot wire fence is going to stop anyone boggles the mind.

You will notice the houses don't have fences for the most part in their back yards, not allowed to put up fences or barriers within 10 feet of the border, well you can if you get permission from the border commission which the US apparently did for this silly 3 foot wire fence they felt the need to put up. (I shared the google street and satellite for those who may not be familiar with the Canada/US border.)




House is in Canada, the van is in the US. It is highly illegal though if the home owner stepped off their yard.

Steve McQueen wouldn't have had any problem with that fence.

Maybe those posts are spring-loaded and activated the instant something passes near the top of the fence - BOOOOSH!!!

There - didn't think of that, did you?
