Canada has been doing this for years, but of course they live under the crown as royal subjects. One time I went to Canada, and got pulled over on one
of those "go pull over there, you are being randomly searched" stops, and they searched everything, even confiscated my phone and were reading text
messages, snickering at dirty text messages I had been texting my girlfriend. They browsed through my laptop and were looking at all of my personal
photos and e-mails. I felt really violated. But then I realized, it was Canada. They have no constitution, rights or freedoms. They live under the
British monarchy. I thought at the time "glad I live in the USA! this would never happen back home..."
Guess I was wrong.
Thanks Obama and TPTB!
Uhhhh,, Canada is a free country, they don't live under anyone but Canada. Sucks you felt violated, but the CBSA has the right to search and seizure
if they feel even the slightest bit suspicious of you. Works both ways, the Americans do it to Canadians as well. I remember crossing the border 3 or
4 years ago, being pulled over. Detained for 2 hrs, searched repeatedly, forced to disrobe, had my truck basically pulled apart, kept threatening to
bring dogs, I kept saying please do. They swabbed every inch of the inside of my truck to run through that damn machine looking for any reason to keep
me. When I was finally let go, I literally turned right around and went back to Canada. I'm a white male, clean cut, clean vehicle, no criminal
record or arrests, like 3 traffic tickets in my life. I was never even told why I was stopped. They gave me 4 or 5 different reasons why they stopped
me. A vehicle similar to yours was reported stolen. We're searching you for drugs.. firearms... explosives.. It was completely retarded, and I've
never been back since.
In Canada it's called the Charter of Rights in freedoms mind you.
