The Integrated Cross Border Law Enforcement Operations Act now makes it possible for American officers to cross the border into Canada where, as the act states, they have "the same power to enforce an act of Parliament as a member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police."
This means they'll be armed and have the powers to arrest suspects in Canadian territory.
Hmmm. Let me see if I have this right.
During the first year of our celebrating a time 200 years ago
when our ancestors fought armed Americans
back to their side of the border
because we prefer to be independent
the Conservative Party of Canada
has invited them back.
This is not a good thing.
It's a creepy thing.
The only armed police on our streets should be Canadian.
