Canadians are as interested in the security of their country as those of us in US are.
However IMO, the fallacy is the length of the border we share. There could be some bent on terrorism who would enter via an "official" entry/exit point. But any of them could cross in either direction atmany places without detection.
I think optic scans are and would be great tools for certain applications.. But having that ability at official sites only offers a false sense of security.
Not very well?
Canadians could face eye scans at border
Washington is turning to the next item on its security agenda: eye scans.
Opponents, however, question the logic and expense of looking for terrorists leaving the country. The Washington Post, which reported the story yesterday, said the program would not operate "for now" at U.S. land borders.
Wouldn't everyone have to stop and prove where they were born? Then they scan Non-Americans?
Stop at Customs of the country you're leaving, then stop at Customs of the country you're entering.
I can see new Customs Buildings be constructed opposite(on the other side of the road) to existing Customs Buildings to check people leaving the country.
Since America is doing it, it only makes sense for Canada to reciprocate.
