Oh yes, we MUST keep an eye on those dangerous Canadian/US border crossings.
Why isnt this done where it can do some REAL use, like on our Southern Border?
I guess its still politically incorrect and the fact that we wouldnt want to offend the Mexicans, after all they are the fastest growing group in the US and with that comes VOTES!


WASHINGTON (AP) - The U.S. Border Patrol is erecting 16 more video surveillance towers in Michigan and New York as part of its plans to use technology to help secure parts of the United States' 4,000-mile northern border with Canada. The government awarded the $20 million project to Boeing Co., the same company responsible for the so-called virtual fence along the U.S.-Mexico border that has come under criticism for faulty technology. Eleven of the towers are being installed in Detroit and five in Buffalo, N.Y., to help monitor water traffic between Canada and the United States along Lake St. Clair and the Niagara River. At present, Border Patrol agents are posted along the river to keep an eye on water traffic.
