U.S. border security ‘off track’ according to Canadian official

| 4/24/2008

The head of the Canadian Trucking Alliance said the U.S. has gone “off track” with the layers of security it has imposed along the northern border.

David Bradley, the president of the Canadian Trucking Alliance, visited Cleveland, OH, to speak at the annual conference of the Canada-United States Law Institute on April 18-19. He stressed the importance of facilitating the smooth flow of goods across the border.

Truck News quoted David Bradley as saying truckers and others are now facing a security environment where it’s “check everything, everyone, all the time.” He also said the new border-crossing rules are costing every trucker about $500 and threaten to slow down economic growth in the Great Lakes region.
