If Manley says it, I would take it to the bank.  Border crossings and delays sucks, but planes flying into skyscrapers suck even more!

In the directive, Napolitano said she wanted to determine "the vulnerabilities" of the U.S.-Canada border and how they can be improved.

The secretary is to receive an oral report on the matter on Tuesday, with a final report to follow a week later.

One of Napolitano's predecessors, as well as a former deputy prime minister of Canada, tell CTV's Power Play that any move to tighten border restrictions would be a mistake -- especially when more than $1 million worth of trade crosses the border every minute.

Former Liberal deputy prime minister John Manley says that the suggestion that the Canadian border poses a threat is nothing new in the world of bilateral politics between the U.S. and Canada.
