BLAINE, Wash. (AP) -- A 19-year-old woman who traveled from France to Canada to visit her mother in British Columbia says U.S. officials detained her for two weeks after she accidentally crossed the border while jogging.

Yeah. Last time I entered Canada I was EXTENSIVELY questioned on my knowledge of Canadian "gun laws," whether I had any firearms, ammunition, magazines, or even "gun literature" with me. After lots of huffing and puffing they finally let me through. So how did they know I have a legitimate and legal Concealed Carry Permit from my state? Must be tagged with my passport.

There goes her holiday, bit a crappy thing to do too someone, yes it could have potentially been an illegal migrant but given she had no papers and likely nothing else except perhaps Canadian money I am sure this as just a very bad or even hateful judgement call by those men, very unfair to this young lady.
I wonder and hate to call out the race card here but if she had been more white would the same situation have arisen?.
That part of your border is apparently very poorly marked and she never saw it running along the beach as she was, they sound like they entrapped her to me as they waited until she stopped to take a picture of the scenery then started to run back the way she had come to go back to her mothers, pretty nasty thing to do if so and just maybe they deserve to get the boot from there job if that is the case.

It is. They threw a fit when I had a load because the truck was owned by a CCW holder. I told them to check Interpol, they have a file on me....hilarity ensued from my perspective.

one should think carefully about carrying a laptop/phone , rules actually are that you are obliged to provide passwords on demand no warrant. your rights are not the same while crossing
Canada too www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca...
