#1 The wanted foreigners, who include a Lebanese murderer and a Kashmiri militant considered armed and dangerous, came to Canada, were released and then skipped their deportation hearings. Their whereabouts are unknown.

Wouldn't be surprised if some of them slipped into the U.S. and are now hooked up with phony documentation.

#2 With this kind of wild support on the Canadian side of the border for "Law & Order" I can see now that the border to the Great White North will be needing more intensive supervision and control.

#3 "Toronto Police Chief Julian Fantino called the Minister’s letter "silly" and said public safety is more important than the privacy rights of war criminals"

Well, there's at least one sane person left in Toronto, though probably not in Ottawa.

#4 Reminds me a cartoon in which chained taxpayer citizens were doing hard labor and criminals were watching TV seated comfortably indoors.

#5 is it time to build that northern friendship fence, now?

As long as you call it a 'friendship fence', and as long as it is a fence, I guess it's ok. If need be I could always drive to some desolate border region and cut thru to the other side. Mind you, electrifying it or stretching razor wire across would be considered cheating.

#6 I don't know that we need a fence. A trellis would be more tastful. The fence shall be guarded by my zepplins of death.

Rafael,
If the mounties need the services of Duane Dog Chapman, I think he's cancelled his vacation in Cancun.

#7 I have many, many friends in Canada, Raphael, from British Columbia to Prince Edward Island. I want them to be able to come down for a visit, whenever they wish. We have nothing against most Canadians, and they will ALWAYS be welcome, no matter how far their government goes off the deep end into an empty pool. Because of the Canadian Government, however, there's an enormous number of riff-raff living in Canada that don't believe in laws, don't believe in borders, and hate the United States just because it exists. We DO want to make it as difficult as possible for THAT group to make it south. A fence can help us do that. I would hope the Canadian government would understand that, and give us a hand. I KNOW the Canadian people are a bit touchy, but most of them, too, would agree, if the information was presented to them in the right way.

It's easier to kill or capture your enemies if they've been funneled into nice, narrow options easy to patrol. Three thousand miles of more-or-less open border with a country with Canada's problems of tracking down such people as this article discusses doesn't give me a warm fuzzy.

#8 Fine, if Canada doesn't want to help, we'll just enlist the bears around the border region. I'm sure they will be more than happy to have another meal, especially after those tasty enviromentalists fromm California.

#9 In his letter, Mr. Coderre said the desire of Canadians to live in safety must be balanced against the rights of wanted war crimes suspects.

This is madness. I hope that the Canadian people throw this guy out. If Canada does not watch it, the country will be infiltrated by war criminal types and it will be too late. PC people scream loudly, but they back down when the people rise up. I also have a good number of Canadian friends and I fear for their country. The West is at war with the Islamists. We did not ask for it, but there it is. It is a question of survival.

#10 Do war criminals have more rights than terrorists, or are their rights the same?

#11 War criminals are usually like everyone else in that they have both a Right and Left unless the soddies have cut one off before the sent them to war.

#12 the country will be infiltated by terrorist types!?
Uh, Alaska Paul, remember the guy on the ferry from Seattle on his way to LAX? I think they already have been infiltrated and we have a false sense of security about our border with Canada. And, if you substituted the word "Canada" for "France" there's virtually no difference in both countries' policies re: US/Iraq war.
