The Canadian Border Services Agency has implemented the closure of the U.S. / Canadian border crossings at Jamieson’s Line, and Franklin Centre in Quebec as well as Big Beaver in Saskatchewan. Barriers and cameras will be installed at these former checkpoints to deter further use of these ports. They also reduced the hours of operation at the Glen Sutton, East Pinnacle and Morses Line border crossings. See our links to these border crossings for more information.
Ezbordercrossing.com will provide updates when the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol announces their decision on whether to keep it’s side of these ports open. It is very likely that the U.S. will match the Canadian action and close the ports, but it will take the better part of 2011 given the hearings and other actions that must be taken to implement these changes.
