Now it’s Canada’s turn to correct staffing issues that discourage cross-border travel
From the Buffalo News:
Will Canada start listening now? With border backups attracting attention across the country and pressure rising at all levels of government, perhaps Ottawa will finally act to defuse a problem that poses economic perils on both sides of the border.
The problem, which has been evident at various times all summer, repeated itself late last month as Canadians returning home from the Kanye West concert in Buffalo encountered not only long lines at the border crossing in Fort Erie, but the additional insult of watching booths closing as agents packed up for the night. An unnecessarily long wait was thoughtlessly extended.
Canadian authorities have been made aware of the problem. Yet nothing improves.
