No need to watch the northern border
All contries must watch all their borders. When someone has to go through two inspections to get to another country it simply doubles the chances of getting caught. it does not guarantee that "no one" meaning to do harm will not get through.
US-Mexico smuggling tunnel found
The US authorities have found a sophisticated drug smuggling tunnel approximately 1,000 feet (300 metres) long beneath the border with Mexico.
These guys were more sophisticated.
I've read that up to 300 tunnels have been found over the years.
In order for this operation from Canada to US to work, there had to be American involvement so, while watching the 'northern border" perhaps someone should be watching the "home front"
If there was no demand, there would be no need to go to these measures to supply the customers
Thanks for blaming America Bill.
There would be no demand if there were no supply too.
(NT) It's the chicken or egg discussion ;)
There are Americans to blame. There are Canadians to blame. There are Mexicans to blame. Include South America, Great Britain, and on down the list of countries where there is a demand for the "products", and which others are happy to provide.
Mostly I blame the users, wherever they live and buy the stuff.

Had to be?

Your assumption is plain but there may or may not have been any US personnel involved with the tunnel or the operation in general. Your assumption is just that, an unthought kneejerk response.
The entire operation could have easily been pure Canadian because Canadians are, in general, pretty free to cross and recross the border and to move about freely within the US. No US involvement was necessary in any way shape or form although it may have been. On the other hand, were it not that it was Canadians that were caught, it could have been purely a US citizen operation for the same reasons.
Now, that's just plain mean!
The Feds sit and watch these guys struggling and sweating to build this thing, and then arrest them before they can enjoy the fruits of their labor. Where's the compassion?
Too bad these guys didn't put all the money and sweat into a legit business.
