At last, all too well, I can see where we all soon will be

Fascinating. I was not at all aware that Pamela Wallin is the Canadian consul-general to New York. Nor would I have expected such clear and coldly rational thinking from a former Canadian news anchor: "I'm telling you that if another incident ever happens -- and most people in the U.S. assume that it will -- if it happens and there is any connection to Canada, and if that plane starts in Toronto and not Boston, and if that person on the plane has a Canadian visa and not an American visa, you will watch that border close very, very quickly," Wallin warned. I don't understand why more Canadians don't appreciate the gravity of the American security situation out of, at least, sheer enlightened self-interest. Instead there seems to be an awful lot of petty sniping and jeering - from the same people who tend to be outraged by any restrictions on Canadian trade. (Via Conservative Punk Canuck.)
