Border Patrol . . . .

This news from yesterday should do wonders to improve US/Canadian relations:

U.S. to begin drone patrols on Canadian border

POSTED: 12:42 p.m. EST, January 12, 2007

WINNIPEG, Manitoba
(AP) -- Unmanned surveillance aircraft will start patrolling the Canadian border by this fall, a Department of Homeland Security official said.

The propeller-driven drones, called Predators, will begin patrolling U.S. airspace along the border with Canada by September and will fly day and night, said Scott Baker, chief patrol agent of Customs and Border Protection, an arm of the Department of Homeland Security.

Wonder if all the folks like us that are attempting to cross the 49th Parallel had anything to do with this?? :)
