When added together with the following report of non-existent or broken cameras that are supposed to be monitoring the US-Canada border, the folly of attempting to control the longest border in the world becomes clear. All the more so, as much of the terrain from Pacific to Atlantic is virtually uninhabited. That's 6416 kilometres (2878 kilometres - land, 3538 kilometres - water; or, 3987 miles (4631 miles - land, 2199 miles - water). Stats and info on the various border areas are here.

The "non-existent or broken cameras" on both borders appear to be due to fraud, not futility.
Even someone as far gone as Badnarik didn't believe in physically open borders where anyone could waltz across from the U.S. to Canada. It probably bears stating that leaving the border open from the U.S. to Canada implies leaving it open from Canada to the U.S.
And, it bears stating that there are several organizations operating in Canada with terrorist ties.
