Reality check: Are Canada’s border and immigration controls too lax?

If you re crossing into Canada by car, there s a chance you and your vehicle won t be properly screened as you pass a border checkpoint.The supervisor monitoring the checkpoint may not have been trained to detect possible corruption or rule-breaking by the guard who waves you through, and probably hasn t been watching that guard very closely over the past few shifts.And the guard himself may have shared his computer login information with another border officer, making it harder to track which one of them actually dealt with you as you entered the country.Those are just some of the holes in Canada s border and immigration control systems that need to be patched, the federal auditor general reported[1] on Tuesday.WATCH: Australian man detained at U.S.-Canada border for overstaying visa by 90 minutes Reality Check: Are Canada's Border And Immigration Controls Too Lax?

It tested positive for cocaine, said Mihok.Staff scoured the security footage until they spotted Reed s unknowing drop and a warrant was issued for Reed s arrest. He was only here for a traffic ticket, said Mihok. He made a simple traffic ticket where there was only a possibility of a fine into a felony. So, not a good day for him. Follow @jennynotjen[8]
