Priorities at our borders
Re: Enforce the price of savings, Aug. 13 letters.
I don’t know if letter-writer Rod Baker is a active reader of the PAN, but this paper and others have reported many times of the various threats to Canadian security by terrorists and organized criminal gangs that have been thwarted at the border.
We live in an age of cross-border drug trafficking, human smuggling and terrorists threats. Convicted terrorist Ahmed Ressam – who was stopped from his plans to blow up LAX airport by border officials – had entered Canada using a fake, altered French passport.
Canadian border officials are better off serving the public interest by focusing on criminal and terrorists threats at our border than trying to collect $5 in tax from someone who went shopping at Target in Bellingham.
