Sweeping overhaul of Canada-U.S. security – Homeland Security Newswire

After months of secret negotiations, Prime Minister Stephen Harper and President Barack Obama will today (Friday) authorize the most sweeping overhaul of Canada-U.S. border and security cooperation in decades.

The agreement will be signed at a White House meeting. It will open the way to a bilateral pact with the potential to give Washington a much bigger say in Canada’s border security, immigration controls, and information-sharing with American law agencies.
