Maybe just me but in this 1984esque-controlled world, it would be a real easy way for TPTB to initiate stricter controls and surveillance on the US/Canada border.Heard from the radio that the two men were dress in camouflage clothing. So far, nothing was released on the type of weapons, where the two individuals were originally from or what the motive was- all easily falsified as one of the suspects was caught and the other still on the loose. The incident happen about 12 km away from the border in the woods. What was the border patrol doing there? Must have remote detection devices or a citizen was spooked and told authorities...

ABBOTSFORD, B.C. - Police in Abbotsford, B.C., say they managed to track a suspect in an international border-shooting incident to a local home early this morning.

Const. Ian MacDonald says the man is Canadian and has a criminal history, but his name won't be released until charges are announced.

MacDonald wouldn't say if a weapon was seized during the arrest, but says police believe they have the man involved in the border shooting.

The manhunt on the Canadian side of the border started Tuesday after one of two men fired on U.S. border agents just a few kilometres away from the Huningdon crossing in the Fraser Valley east of Vancouver.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman Michael Milne says agents on patrol encountered two men in camouflage and wearing backpacks in an area known as a drug smuggling corridor.

MacDonald couldn't say what charges the suspect would face, or if he would face those charges in Canada or in the United States. (With files from AP)

Lots of Canadian marijuana grow operations just north of there.

Likely just drug mules moving BC Bud across the border.


And yes, they have drones with infrared and mobile sensors similar to trail cameras hunters use, but in real time.

The US/Canada border is pretty heavily patrolled in that area.
