OTTAWA, Ont. — Tory leader Joe Clark is the latest to throw in his advice on how to alleviate growing concerns about border congestion between Canada and the U.S.
Clark suggested yesterday that a new cross-border agency be formed, which would see U.S. and Canadian Customs officials working together under the same roof.
The new agency would be fall under a newly-formed Ministry of Public Protection and Border Management, according to Clark’s plan.
"Canada needs a plan quickly so that these extraordinary circumstances do not threaten, prevent or impede the mobility of people, goods and services and merchandise between Canada and our most important trading partner," says Clark. "(The government’s) responses are so late and so piecemeal that they practically invite the United States of America to impose an in-America response to these issues."
