Smart Border / Dumb Border
U.S. Home Security Chief Tom Ridge and our very own Minister of Public Safety, Anne McLellan, were together yesterday, extolling the virtues of the Canada-USA Smart Border Plan. Mr. Ridge waxed eloquent about how it is working so well, because terrorism suspects are turned back at the border and prevented from entering the U.S. almost every day. Ms. McLellan beamed beside him, apparently oblivious to the implication that we are, therefore, keeping them all in Canada. I know which side of this border is smart and which side is dumb.
