I find the idea of a wall between Canada and the United States to be a total pipedream. From Nova Scotia to Manitoba, no fence can ever exist due to
the fact that it is water
that seperates one country from the other...and we have had ample proof that water cannot stop smugglers, even with
the best of equipment and manpower. Nothing is going to stop a canoe from crossing rivers at night.
The Great Lakes are HUGE...hence their name...and any 17 foot sportfishing boat can make a crossing with lots of gas and a compass. Sure, there's
patrols out there, but a determined bunch would still get some boats across, especially at night and well picked courses.
The prairies are do-able for fences, but what about the Rocky Mountains? Anyone who's ever gone there would have to admit the job is nigh
And, even if, by some amazing feat of engineering a fence did get erected, how easy would it be to blow a hole in an unattended part?
Nope...the best fence between Canada and America is about 2 million GI's with sniper rifles, stationed every 500 yards in open country (closer in
rough terrain) with their eagle eyes and steely reserve, waiting for those deadly canucks with their hockey sticks and maple syrup canisters to
Several billion buried land mines, as well as punji sticks with Mad Cow Poo on them, would be good too...
