Darn! Missed them by that much.
Fag-Hating Protesters Evade Border Security
Nice to know that after the investment of untold millions of dollars over several years into various programs and initiatives aimed at “securing the border” with the United States since 9/11 (much to the consternation, inconvenience and expense of commercial transport carriers and the import/export trade community), in practice, it turns out that all of the highly sophisticated measures taken to date are almost completely useless when it comes to fulfilling even their most primary objective of interdiction.
Shirley Phelps-Roper, the daughter of the founding member of the Westboro Baptist Church, told CTV.ca a group of seven members was turned away when they tried to cross the U.S. border into Canada Thursday night. But she said other members managed to get through at another border crossing, although she would not say how many.
… Phelps-Roper said the church’s first group of protesters was refused entry into Canada. Members of the second group, however, carried no signs or leaflets indicating they belonged to the Westboro Baptist Church. That group got through and is now in Canada, Phelps-Roper said.
What a brilliant ploy! Yes, all it took to circumvent CBSA border agents, that reportedly had been issued instructions from Public Safety Minister Stockwell Day explicitly barring members of the notoriously lunatic church group from entering the country, was to be somewhat less than completely obvious.
Well, I guess in the future, as long as any “terrorists” don’t come encumbered by bothersome placards or leaflets, it should be smooth sailing across the border!
