Most of the traffic is local and legal. But smugglers ? going north and south ? know the roads are unguarded. In August, a Border Patrol agent had to fire his weapon at a car he stopped not far from Blair Road that had tried to run him down before fleeing back into Quebec.

‘There’s a lot more going on out here than people realize,’ said U.S. Border Patrol Supervisor Bradley Curtis.

Tests show flaws

There are about a dozen similar unmarked back roads between Vermont and Quebec and many more across the 3,987-mile U.S.-Canada border. At a time when the United States is trying to secure its borders against illegal immigrants and potential terrorists, some see the challenges as a direct threat to national security.

The Government Accountability Office recently released a report in Washington about the security of the U.S.-Canada border.

As part of some of the tests, investigators carried a red duffel bag across the border simulating radioactive material that could be brought into the U.S. by a terrorist.

In others, they walked back and forth across the border where roads in the U.S. and Canada were only separated by a few feet, but they weren’t approached by Border Patrol agents.

‘That border is so long, frankly, the security on that border has really not increased too much since the French and Indian War,’ John Cooney, the GAO’s assistant director for forensic audits and special investigations, said Sept. 27 during testimony in Washington before the Senate Finance Committee.

    We are starting to see a trickle of these Canadian stories showing up.
    I would bet that we will start seeing more and more of them at a rapid pace.
    Im very curious to know what the situation is up there.
    Are there any Canadians out there?
    How bout chiming in?
    From what I gather, the city of Toronto has been targeted
    (just like Chicago was)
    As soon as they got their foothold there,
    then they will spread out to the whole country.
