This article is upsetting. If we tried this in the US it would become a national incident. It appears that the rules of enforcement are not being monitored well by the very people that are asked to do so.
If carriers are having this issue, then it would be up to them to be part of the solution would it not? Being held hostage by shippers is ridiculous. Maybe they (shippers) need to be better educated but I believe the onus is on the CBSA to do its job.
Who is going to protect our jobs in Canada if we don’t ourselves?
