Re: test

I've looked at some other forums that I frequent and that does seem to be the norm. Maybe I just need to get used to the new format. I do like the look!

Re: test

I like the look but agree with the scaling issue. I realize the world is moving to tiny handheld screens but I use a a laptop and am constantly frustrated by this but I do realize that I'm probably in the quickly shrinking minority.

Good job though!

Re: RCMP pot policy

This entire exercise has been every bit the shit-show I envisioned it would be and a distraction from far more important things. I think that was the plan all along.

Re: Question for Land Border CBSA folks out there...

This is a strange case but this line from the article caught my attention. Two weeks passed before immigration officials in Canada and the US were able to confirm that Roman was eligible to return to Canada. It seems reasonable to me that USCBP would initially detain her because they could not ident...

Re: CBSA air-mode Officers armed but not carrying

Bill C-23 received royal assent on Tuesday. With C-23 passed into law, Canada now needs to enact regulations on the new preclearance regime before the agreement is fully ratified, and then the airports will have to sign cost recovery and operational agreements with the U.S. border agency. It will li...

Re: CBSA air-mode Officers armed but not carrying

Thank you Jonny, very informative!

I'm not sure that the regulations and legislation are the problem, it's the way they have chosen to interpret them. Of course it isn't only CBSA who makes the decision, plenty of other agencies, plus the feds that need to be on board with it.

Re: CBSA air-mode Officers armed but not carrying

The reason we are constantly fed is that it's a transport Canada regulation and until the legislation changes we aren't able to carry firearms inside the terminals. So in theory, this transport Canada legislation would apply to US officers as well. It's going to have to been a simultaneous roll out...

Re: CBSA air-mode Officers armed but not carrying

If you go back just a couple posts, I was the one holding out hope 3-4 years ago that after the frontier ports had fully implemented the arming initiative that the airports would follow soon after. Today, I'm of the opinion that CBP will have armed officers at Canadian airports before CBSA. I was wr...

Re: CBSA air-mode Officers armed but not carrying

Bill C-23 (Preclearance Act) looks as though it will receive royal assent fairly soon and we may indeed have armed USCBP officers at Canadian airports before CBSA does. m Bill C-23 Preclearance Act, 2016 An Act respecting the preclearance of persons and goods in Canada and the United States m Part 3...

Re: CBSA air-mode Officers armed but not carrying

Ziggy, where did you get this 2 years thing? It's been 2 years for 10 years. This is a revived old thread and that post of mine is a little over three years old. At the time there was some faint hope that after arming had been fully implemented at frontier ports that there would be a move to implem...

No problema. It 's a good question but I'd prefer that those who have warrants remain in the dark.

Re: Police... aren't people.

I didn't read it. I try to stay away from that stuff. This is the world we have become; where once-respected occupations are demonized as a matter of course. It started a while back with lawyers and politicians, progressed through businessmen, civil servants and union members. And now it's on to doc...
