A reader from north of the border passes along an item for my Homeland Insecurity Files – Canadian Edition. A news article from the Ottawa Citizen on grievances by overworked and understaffed Canadian border patrol agents reports:

Besides salary and classification disputes, protesters took exception to the Canada Border Services Agency employing summer students to patrol ports of entry.

“There’s your border security,” chortled Mr. Lupien, saying students only receive three weeks of training before embarking on their jobs. “It’s McCustoms.”

According to Mr. Lupien, 1,200 students guard the border over the summer and, at the Lansdowne crossing near the Thousand Islands, students vastly outnumber full-time officers on some shifts.

Happy crossings, al Qaeda!
