US Building barrier between the US and Canada

"The U.S. Border Patrol, Blaine Sector, has decided the stretch of border, which stretches between the Pacific Ocean and the city of Abbotsford, to the north, has gone barrier-free long enough.

They’re building a fence.

“This project addresses binational safety concerns related to a vulnerable section of the border located between Boundary Road in the U.S. and Zero Avenue in Canada,” reads a statement from U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesperson Jason Givens. “This barrier is designed to prevent vehicles from either accidentally, or purposefully, crossing the boundary and endangering citizens in both countries.”

Although American officials referred to the project as benefitting both the U.S. and Canada, a representative from the Canada Border Services Agency said only that the fence is being installed on the U.S. side of the border.

Technically a “wire barrier” that will eventually span just shy of two and a half kilometres is a far cry from the border wall the U.S. is building along the Mexico border, where the U.S. has erected 200 miles of wall under the Trump administration (although most of the wall is fencing)."

It's not a big deal. Anyone that lives by there knows that any 4x4 can just drive through the ditch and into the states and vice versa, with some places not even needing 4x4. It's only a cable "fence".

What if it is an inconvenience to the wildlife that crosses the boundary?

LOL.............you're kidding right - the wildlife we are worried about drive cars and walk on two legs. I'm sure the other type will adapt being that the 'fence' is only waist height. Too bad they didn't erect a 50ft high concrete wall then I might have worried about the critters.

Maybe the true intention of the American Government is to keep Americans from leaving.

Immigration from the USA to Canada has skyrocketed in the past five years.

The american Dictator strikes again.

Getting more irrational & isolation prone all the time. They should just build a wall around their whole country........... and isolate themselves completely. Not sure anyone would miss them at this point. The damage is too great.
they will not restrict their own movements on the intentional stage......... just those coming in.

Again..... They have to be "handled"........like a psycho patient. and could use a large dose of anti psychotics at the moment.

Not for a long time bud. Sure, you can drive over but HLS will be on your ass in seconds. When was the last time you did Ave 0?

Yup can’t drive Zero without seeing lots of border patrol , even more so since Covid closed the border .

Well, when a slat fence is a "wall," this could be at least a "barrier."

You talk as if you know the area, that you have lived there, when in fact you dont have a fuc king clue. Stick to watching your weather reports.

Your right. I've never ever ever lived there. I get it all from weather reports as you say.

You are right, my uncle lives off 184 St and 12 Ave in Surrey a 10 min walk from the border. Better to walk away, and avoid unnecessary stress.
